Flesh Mechanic (Placebo)

He tries to embrace her she wants him to race her he needs a laser to get it through her skull means and lies and hatreds tears that fall in sequence cold caress imprints conversation growing dull Says he's a poet lousy protozoan and he kisses ass for free I took a vow of silence when he tries to talk to me I just turn on the tv He tries to impress her, mentally undress her it takes more to possess her but in his pocket lies a hole he's got a thousand talents charisma by the bagful aristocratic parents a rebel with a heart of gold Says he's a poet this time he's gonna blow it 'cause he's dancing with his ego I took a vow of silence when he reads his work to me I swallow words like a placebo He's strutting with your flesh mechanic gets him in a panic he's wasting time 'cause everybody is a star in his eyes Careful not to give your favours to your lonesome fucked-up neighbours I had one who sent me her heart in a tupperware container all the movies in my head they flicker with my bleeding heart a careless slipping of the tongue on just another private part Blatant search for stoned affection fights the rust that breeds infection meet me at the intersection don't forget your fuel injection He's strutting with your flesh mechanic gets him in a panic he's wasting time 'cause everybody is a star in his eyes You think this love is bona fide you're being taken for a ride wrap your lip around your head and slowly blow yourself away.
