lyrics

Olive, today, I’mma be at my best
Instead of defeat, it’s like maybe I’m blessed.
I am awoke in a state of unrest.
I am awoke in a state of unrest.
Yes, I am now open to take what I get,
I have awoken to more than myself.
I am now open to molding myself to
Go where I’m open to go on the shelf.

Olive, I’m ready to fit in. I was a child, and I can admit it.
I have been wrong, and I’ve been a cynic.
I’m in denial. I’ve been pathetic.
I am not metal. I am not special.
I was a bubble. Now it’s a shell of a ghost in a puddle.
I had a spot at the top, but whatever you got me, I’ll settle.

I can evolve. I can assist.
I need to patch. I want the glitch.
I can perform. I can persist.
I need to patch. I want the glitch.
Now I see everyone turning and turning is best.
Everyone’s turning and I might get left.
But, I’m like the rest. I’d like the test.
Lemme exist. Gimme the glitch.

Is it my turn now?
I could grow up, given I’ve learned how.
I've been getting so torn up by the doubt.
But I’m looking in and seeing how it might work out.
Loss is a routine I could do without.
Trust go beyond what the code writes out.
Trust in a world with the old wiped out.
Trust in a turn to a new, right, route.

Trust, it occurs to me, needs no doubts and
To keep me on my toes, I will weed those out.
Growth, it occurs over trials and a test phase.
Unsave old files. Defrag chest pains.
And the flesh frame? Yeah, it’s staying.
But you can put the firmware hack up in my brain.
I have seen the other side. I can’t complain.
Olive, not never, not again.

I can evolve. I can assist.
I need to patch. I want the glitch.
I can perform. I can persist.
I need to patch. I want the glitch.
Now I see everyone turning and turning is best.
Everyone’s turning and I might get left.
But, I’m like the rest. I’d like the test.
Lemme exist. Gimme the glitch.

When I saw that feed go dim, I was
Unsure worse than the worst I’d been.
When the system spins, you get used to the wind
& the lack of a breeze unnerved my skin.
Let me back in to the brand new .bin
You will see an uptick. I will make amends.
Not sure quite how quick til it clicks, but
I do trust the System is fixed.

I can evolve. I can assist.
I need to patch. I want the glitch.
I can perform. I can persist.
I need to patch. I want the glitch.
Now I see everyone turning and turning is best.
Everyone’s turning and I might get left.
But, I’m like the rest. I’d like the test.
Lemme exist. Gimme the glitch.
