LYRICS:
Why you gotta be so skittish?
Jumping right out of your skin
Shivering and fearful, fearsome
And when I gotta do you in,
Will you say there’s a way to have it all?
Something’s tied so tight, nothing’s breaking free
Ripping asunder with a boomerang
held out with soft hand, repaired and whole
Ain’t it unoriginal?
Like skin and like skin
Ain’t it grand?
I think she’ll know, but it’s new
I think she’ll know, new artificial intelligence
Gotta get it all out, get it gone and out
Split and packed up miracles
Retracing faint footsteps
Through the Pliocene with artful artifacts
Thinking into right action
Abrogate the patient end
Depoliticized on the fringe, polyvocalize
Fusing, caught together in a memory
slipped on the shoreline, washed all away
Ain’t it unoriginal?
Like skin on like skin
Ain’t it grand?
I think she’ll know, but it’s new
I think she’ll know, new artificial intelligence
