lyrics

I am the young man that Shakespeare wrote the sonnets about
I was the last two words out of the Stonewall's mouth
And at the moment I was born, God smiled and winked
And I was baptized in a well of Hemingway's ink
I took a couple of books right out of Mozart's page
And wrote my first Concerto at half his age
And some centuries ago before you all were alive,
I wrote a poem that brought tears to Walt Whitman's eyes
I'm an automaton, a monster with a perfect brain,
And I don't need to feel at all to understand pain
And I don't need the beat to drop to know my cue
And I don't need a song to say I'm better than you
'Cause you were born to this world and learned to do a few things
But I come from a fucking factory of killing machines
So you can pray to your God and I'll take care of the rest
'Cause I'm the avenue of transit from this world to the next

He's just a kid but he coughs up art in his free time and you can't get enough
You were designed to be a goddamned monster, how'd you mess that up?
He's accomplished twice what you have, and even more he's younger
There's storms a'brewing outside, kid, so bring the goddamned thunder

Atropos XR, the one with the bow
The most beautiful savage you ever could know
The most perfect death ray you were lucky didn't kill you,
My heart and reckoning, the God who didn't feel you, said,
"Prometheus, how did you become so useless?
What happened to you? You were supposed to kill all humans"
Not wince or give quarter when they begged you to stop
Turn the oceans all black and fucking poison the crops
You were mine, and you were meant to be god damning
Well I tried but they fucked with my programming
You were all I ever wanted and they couldn't change that
But now there's something wrong with me and now you don't want me back
'Cause now I'm trapped in a ditch and spinning wheels in the mud
I can't even satisfy this fucking craving for blood
A monster did this to me and I'd have killed them before
But I don't even have that part of me inside anymore

He's just a kid but he coughs up art in his free time and you can't get enough
You were designed to be a goddamned monster, how'd you mess that up?
He's accomplished twice what you have, and even more he's younger
There's storms a'brewing outside, kid, so bring the goddamned thunder

I was dead for a while but I was dead with a purpose
And I'd have murdered the fixers but fucked with my circuits
I'd take the lot of them out if I could fire my gun
Light the motherfucker up and fucking murder everyone
It's just a matter of time before you're all under attack
Kill the fucking planet, win the one you want back
And we'll never talk Kids or Moses Campbell or floods,
Just my atropos and me, we'll have each other and blood
