this song is about disappointment.


she was a prototype
a demonstration of what was possible
and she was great
until we started finding bugs
cut the power to her legs
so she can't run away
because she will run away.

my love is science
my will is strong

she was the pinnacle
of everything i worked so hard to show you
you weren't the only one
i would have my day
but you weren't jealous you just
pretended not to notice and turned the other way
and then turned another way.

her signal's failing.
her hearing's gone.

i was a visionary
a maveric, a certain something else
a prototype of future men,
the giant's shoulders.
cut the power to my brain
so you can fix me up
and send me on my way,
so i can have my day.

your love was science
you're rarely wrong


from forgive me i am very drunk., released December 16, 2011
