SONG STRUCTURE:

INTRO

VERSE -
Reunion begins
With a glass of mercury
Whilst television flickers
For another news bulletin
Flints light up the eyes
Of the seated family

CHORUS -
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal won't rust when oiled and cleaned
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal will rule in my master scheme

VERSE -
With a clockwork jerk
Pluck cogs from fob watches
For dinner on Friday
Then recoiling say excuse me
Must go recycle
My precious machinery

CHORUS -
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal won't rust when oiled and cleaned
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal will rule in my master scheme

VERSE -
It's ruling our lives
There is no hope
Thought I'd drop a line
The weather here is fine
But day and night it blares
Commanding through loudspeakers:

CHORUS -
"Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal won't rust when oiled and cleaned
Metal is tough, metal will sheen
Metal will rule in my master scheme"

OUTRO -
In my master scheme
Metal is tough, metal is clean
Metal, metal, comma, metal
Comma comma, metal, mittageisen
Metal
