UNDER investigation

The other half of Jack is in another box

somewhere far from here

Conceptual cues and uncanny valley

message is never clear

Dancing around the coconut bush

the monkey chased the weasel

Naked from the waist down

out comes the evil

Not fully assembled now

maybe an expired warranty

No heart recovered or found

purpose built with no guarantee

UNDER investigation

KATY PERRY – MANNEQUIN lyrics

How do I get
Closer to you
When you keep
It all on mute
How will I know
The right way
To love you

Usually the queen
Of figuring out
Breaking down a man
Is no work out
But I have no clue
How to get
Through to you

I wanna hit you
Just to see
If you cry
I keep knocking on wood
Hoping there’s
A real boy inside

[Chorus:]
But you’re not a man
You’re just a mannequin
I wish you could feel
That my love is real

But you’re not a man

I wish
I could just
Turn you on
Put a battery in
And make you talk
Even pull
A string for you
To say anything

But with you
There is no guarantee
Only expired warranty
A bunch
Of broken parts
And I can’t seem
To find your heart

I’m such a fool
I’m such a fool
I’m such a fool
Cause this one’s
Outta my hands
I can’t put you
Back together again

[Chorus:]
Cause you’re not a man
You’re just a Mannequin
I wish you could feel
That my love is real
You’re just a toy
Could you ever be
A real, real boy
And understand
But you’re not a man

If the past is the problem,
our future could solve them, baby
I could bring you to life
if you let me inside, baby
It’ll hurt
but in the end,
you’ll be a man
And understand
That you’re not a man
