Lyrics

   I am just a copy of a copy of a copy
   Everything I say has come before
   Assembled into something, into something, into something
   I don't know for certain anymore
   
   I am just a shadow of a shadow of a shadow
   Always trying to catch up with myself
   I am just an echo of an echo of an echo
   Listening to someone's cry for help
   
   Look what you had to start
   Why all the change of heart?
   You need to play your part
   A copy of a copy of a
   Now look what you've gone and done
   Well that doesn't sound like fun
   See I'm not the only one
   A copy of a copy of a
   
   I am little pieces, little pieces, little pieces
   Pieces that were picked up on the way
   Imprinted with a purpose, with a purpose, with a purpose
   A purpose that's become quite clear today
   
   Look what you had to start
   Why all the change of heart?
   You need to play your part
   A copy of a copy of a
   Now look what you've gone and done
   Well that doesn't sound like fun
   See I'm not the only one
   A copy of a copy of a

   I am just a finger on a trigger on a finger
   Doing everything I'm told to do
   Always my intention, my intention, your attention
   Just doing everything you tell me to

   Look what you had to start
   Why all the change of heart?
   You need to play your part
   A copy of a copy of a
   Now look what you've gone and done
   Well that doesn't sound like fun
   See I'm not the only one
   A copy of a copy of a
