lyrics

Tally up, knuckle tough
I'll take five if you've got some
Been black and blue, a time or two
But that's half the fun

I've added gears, and shapes of spears
To bring the brass to bear
Head don't think, don't let your ears blink
We're rounded out to square

Tension spring, pendulum swing
Wind it up, synchronize your clocks
Patent pend, just check my grin
I've been working on... my gearbox

Smoking screen, feeds the machine
The satin and the leather and steel
Zeppelin blimps, faculty glimpse
For necessity invented the wheel

No stutter see, planned and plotted nicely
Precision visioned in every move
Crafted tight, strung out like a kite
Pistons pumpin' thumpin' out this here groove

CHORUS

Monocle poked in my face, top hat shoved in its place
Take my spot in the assembly line
Mind the cuffs and the lapels, wipe the grease spot tattletells
You'll get the parts you need one at a time

CHORUS
