lyrics

Hands of brass and wire frame
Polished glass and optic pane
Probes my world, seeking understanding.
I wonder at it all in vain
Nothing I see can explain
This consciousness ever expanding.
Given life does soul provide my algorithmic thoughts reside
In wire springs and logic gates, yet more than logic permeates.
Please tell me, what is this life?

Flesh. Wire. Metal. Bone.
Flesh. Wire. Metal. Bone.

Oh, Mother, reveal to me, how is it I came to be.
Wind my heart here deep engage.
Pressure builds in wire cage.
Spinning down my time clock ticking all the while.
I wonder at my newborn state, inorganic yet animate.
Frantic thoughts post down endless wires.
Given life does soul provide my algorithmic thoughts reside
In wires springs and logic gates, yet more than logic permeates.
Please tell me what is this life.
