lyrics

She wanted trouble by the heaps and had me to blame
Wanted to wallow in her sadness
Processed my love like something shiny new
Kissed my cheek then turned to madness

And as I watched her circuits leak
Devoid of all the love she can't keep
Her soldered smile still turned me on

Holly is an android
Holly doesn't need you baby
Holly doesn't love you
Holly is a cyborg baby
Holly is an android
Holly doesn't need you baby
Holly doesn't love you
Holly is an android

She tore the wires from her brain in an attempt to break
Away from hardware strains that pushed her
Humanity seemed just a glitch away
But her new mind soon left her mindless

And as she speaks, she seems so real
Why can't I be the one to fix her
One final pulse and she was gone

Holly is an android
Holly doesn't need you baby
Holly doesn't love you
Holly is a cyborg baby
Holly is an android
Holly doesn't need you baby
Holly doesn't love you
Holly is an android

Fix, fix me baby
Fix, fix me baby
Un, deux, trois, quat'

Holly is an android
Holly doesn't need you baby
Holly doesn't love you
Holly is a cyborg baby
Holly is an android
Holly doesn't need you baby
Holly doesn't love you
Holly is an android
