    If you desire to have a tangible musical object to hold in your hands then this is for you. I used one of the most environmental printers I could find. I took time designing it with my partner as for me the object/cd is an important part of the finished work. It includes a full lyric booklet too, one thats a readable size :)

lyrics

Put on my shoes
Put on my face
Put on a smile, I look great
Put up my hair so it looks neat
Put on a smile
I am ready

To tell the world what it needs
To fill minds with hopes and dreams

I’ve seen things hard to see
I have honed the gift of forgetting

They’re just mechanical
They are animals
They’re just the numbers
To fill the data

She lay there young, still and cold
I knew her face from the petition
I’d been told they'd been tamed
No force was used, I was lied to

One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine hundred bodies counting
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine thousand bodies counting
One, two, three, four, five, six, seven, eight, nine million bodies counting

There just mechanical
They are animals
They just the numbers
To fill the data

Fear, greed and lies built the perfect world
They wont let one small child break it all
They have gone to far to let it fail
But I fear as the walls start to crumble

I am mechanical
I am their animal
I am just a number
To fill their data

I put my shoes on
I do my face
I zip up the dress that I hate
