Metal lyrics

  • Artist: Nine Inch Nails (NIN) Also performed by: Gary Numan, Nouvelle Vague
  • Album: Things Falling Apart
  • Translations of covers: Polish


We're in the building where they make us grow
And I'm frightened by the liquid engineer
Like you
My Mallory heart is sure to fail
I could crawl around the floor just like I'm real
Like you
The sound of metal I want to be you
I should learn to be a man
Like you
Plug me in and turn me on
Oh everything is moving
I need my treatment it's tomorrow they send me
Singing "I am an American"
Do you?
Picture this if I should make the change
I'd love to pull the wires from the wall
Did you?
And who are you and how can I try?
Here inside I like the metal
Don't you?
All I know is no one dies
I'm still confusing love with need
