Two weeks to take a song from conception to completion to competition!

Clockwork Girl

This song was created for Game of Bands round 82 : "Clockwork"

Lyrics:

I first awoke in a gleaming lab,
To dancing and shouts of victory.
?We have done it!? proclaimed voices loud.
?We have solved life?s greatest mystery!?

?We made a man by our own great deeds!?
As my gears turned I rose from the rack
And their revel turned to quiet awe.
With my first clanging step, they fell back.

I was much more than they had thought,
Yet there was something that I sought.

Tick tock tick tock I?m a clockwork man.
My mind is made of cogs and springs,
My heart is made of crystal and brass.
I can do the most amazing things!
But when it comes to being real,
There?s love, which I can never feel.

Each face I noted looked different,
But I had no knowledge of the cause.
Some mouths turned up, and some mouths turned down.
Could they be some sort of design flaws?
I moved toward the nearest person
?Why do your eyes get big?? I intoned.
Then I plucked his eye to seek knowledge,
And as they all screamed he fell and moaned.

I was much more than they had thought,
Yet there was something that I sought.

Tick tock tick tock I?m a clockwork man.
My mind is made of cogs and springs,
My heart is made of crystal and brass.
I can do the most amazing things!
But when it comes to being real,
There?s love, which I can never feel.

They came at me then, with tool and fire,
But I easily took them apart.
Those doctors were cold and arrogant,
What I need is a kind and warm heart.

I?ve developed a new technique.
Do you have that which I seek?

Tick tock tick tock I?m a clockwork man.
My mind is made of cogs and springs,
My heart is made of crystal and brass.
I can do the most amazing things!
But when it comes to being real,
There?s love, which I can never feel.
