I am the tin man my arms are of lead with wool for my heart and your fingers on the thread I am the tin man and this heart beats a weave a black and tangled mess from whenever you leave the further that you get the more it will unfurl because I am the Tin Man and you were my girl and I weep until I rust and try to carry on but the cry of my joints is our threnody song I walked until the morning as I followed the sun because I am the tin man and I am undone I strayed to the forest just to see what I would see but the animals were frightened and they ran away from me I came to a village where the children they did scream because I am the Tin Man and I am obscene I held out my arms but they held out a gun and they said battles must be fought and war they must be won they tore off my limbs and they smelted me down pressed me into bullets and they shipped me out of town I am the tin man and I'm fighting in your war but it wasn't me that started it and i don't know what it's for I fly through the air and into you skin and it's all you remember from all we could had been I am the tin man but what is there left you took apart my body and gave away my best I am the tin man and my heart beats a weave you took what you wanted you look and then you leave.
