lyrics

The Way We Are
by Rachel Oto

Clockwork counting the notches
Numbered nicks in our spines
Hope the mechanisms makes our souls rise

Buttons trigger each motion
Tingles are tied up in wires
Flip of the switch and we hit all the marks on the line

But don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say

Tracks lead us to our stations
Fuel us up or we die
Tick of the tape fills our brains keeps us moving in time

There's not more than the humming
There's not more than the signs
Pull us along, pull us on, pull us through this live

But don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say

We were the diamonds in the sky
We were the dancing of the light
So much has changed with every trial
And how we feel it

Don't say

Don't say we are the way we are
Don't say we are the way we are
We tried so hard and got this far
Don't say
