Just Like Everyone

I’m just like everyone,
I’ve got copper slipping through my brains,
copper lurking in my blood,
just like everyone,
I’m
just like everyone,
I lie awake and don’t know why
I lie to your face and
say goodbye,
I’m just like everyone,
I’ve got copper slipping past my tongue,
copper leaking from my gums,
just like everyone,
I’m
just like everyone,
A loose collection of wires and dust,
just like everyone,
spitting out numbers,
throwing up rust,
with no reason for it,
no reason why,
I’m
just like everyone,
I’ve got copper beating through my brains,
just like everyone,
copper in every mote of me.
