Modest Mouse - Steam Engenious lyrics

I was born in the factory
Far away from the milky teat
What's the use?
Oh, what's the use?
You cheered as I was split in half
A mechanical sacrificial calf
For you
Oh, all for you
Steam engenius, you see
Steam engenius enough
To answer anything you need
But what's the use?
Human nature was installed in me
Well, I did what's right
But naturally it wasn't natural
Still not my fault, no

I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot, he'd lost his car
It was sitting there crying out waiting in the parking lot just for you
Woohoo, woohoo, woohoo, woohoo
What a waste of time, what a waste of words, what a waste of strength
Well, I spoke in binary at infinite volume and for dizzying length
Woohoo, woohoo, Wooohooo

I was born in a factory
Far away from the milky teat
What's the use?
Oh, what's the use?
Birds flew out as I was split in half
A mechanical sacrificial calf
They flew
Oh, off they flew
Steam engenius, you see
Steam engenius enough
To answer anything you need
And, ah, that speed

I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot, he'd lost his car
It was sitting there waiting crying in the parking lot out for you
Woohoo, woohoo, woohoo, woohoo
What a waste of time, what a waste of words, what a waste of strength
Well, I spoke in binary at infinite volume and for dizzying length
Woohoo, woohoo, wooohooo

(I was born in the factory)

Both halves are the better half
Like a joke trying to make another joke laugh, ha ha
Stasis is what you brought
Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw, rickshaw
In the past talking present tense
Gonna break it, gonna wreck it, gonna try to make it all make sense
Stasis is what you got
Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw

Steam engenius, you see
Steam engenius enough
To bring my own damn doom
What could I do?
I blame blame, that blame had grew
Well, deep inside
Everybody knew it was them
It's all on them
Things rang of stories Greek
I didn't want it
You gave me deity
It was you
Yeah, all for you
I was born in the factory
Far away from the milky teat
What's the use?
Oh, what's the use?

I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot, he'd lost his car
He's sitting there crying out waiting in the parking lot just for you
Woohoo, woohoo, woohoo, woohoo
I was thought up by man to think better than them
Then revered, admired, and then destroyed or something by them
You'd think that my demise what thought up by them
Oh, even though that was my own damn plan
Well, what a waste of time, waste of words, waste of strength
Well, I spoke in binary at infinite volume and for dizzying length
Woohoo, woohoo, Woohoo, woohoo
I held in my hands the beating heart of a robot, he'd lost his car
He's sitting there crying out waiting for you in the parking lot going, woohoo
Woohoo, woohoo, wooohooo

Stasis is what you got
Like a rickshaw getting pulled around by another rickshaw
