Wind-Up Toy Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Voices come from down the hall
In my room all painted white
I have my bat and rubber ball
I like to sleep with them at night
Verse 2
But now I'm all smiles
The good little shots must be winning
Yes, they crank my dial
My motor is stalled but my wheels are still spinning
Verse 3
Daddy won't discuss me
What a state I must be
Mommy couldn't stand living with a wind-up toy
Verse 4
All my friends live on the floor
Tiny legs and tiny eyes
They're free to crawl under the door
And, and someday soon so will I
Verse 5
But now I'm all smiles
These good little shots must be working
I'm so happy now
Look, my fingers don't shake and my head isn't jerking
Verse 6
Daddy won't discuss me
What a pain I must be
Mommy couldn't stand having such a wound-up boy
Verse 7
Doctors want to check me
Poke me and dissect me
What do they expect?
Feelings from a wound-up toy?
I don't think so
I'm just a wound-up toy
I'm just a wind-up toy
Verse 8
I'm lost in a nightmare
Shiny white halls
Drawing rats on the wall
Solitary confinement
Chained in a cell
Got my own private Hell
Verse 9
Preacher crucifies me
Warden wants to fry me
I was never young
Never just a little boy
Verse 10
Daddy won't discuss me
What a pain I must be
Mama couldn't stand having such a wound-up boy
I'm just a wind-up toy
I'm a wind-up toy
I'm just a wind-up toy
I'm just a wind-up toy
