about

The story of a selfless robot who gives his heart to another.

lyrics

When I met you I gave you my heart
'Cause I knew you'd need it more
And though I'm glad you've got this new part,
Still it leaves me very sore

I'm glad that you will be alright
There's nothing else I could ask for
So go enjoy your brand new life
As I bleed oil on the floor

We met in summertime, the air was warm and fine
But she was just sitting there, all alone and in despair
With a broken heart, she'd been torn apart
Shattered and abused, he'd left her barely ticking

Joanna was her name, reduced to just a frame
Hollow husk of a machine, where a ticker once had been
Such a lovely soul, now an empty hole
I could tell that clearly she was still worth fixing

When I met you I gave you my heart
'Cause I knew you'd need it more
And though I'm glad you've got this new part,
Still it leaves me very sore

I'm glad that you will be alright
There's nothing else I could ask for
So go enjoy your brand new life
As I bleed oil on the floor

I'll just lay here and close my eyes
As I slowly drift away
And though I know that I cannot die
I can rust and I'll decay

I know Joanna is alright
That's all that I was hoping for
Perhaps someone will find me, too
In all this oil on the floor.
