lyrics

WORMGEAR:

I should thank you, boss, for showing me
The world isn’t black and white.
Instead the colors bled
But still refused to mix.

This war, this petty greediness
it's not worth the fight.
Humans and bots alike pollute
And it may be too late to fix.

We should use less,
But we add to the cess.
We must confess,
We’ve made an oily mess.

Is there any way we can stop it?
Is there any way to mop it up?
Is there any way to plug the leak?
Can it still be willed to the meak?

We've made a mess.

You’ve convinced me, Miss Spinwheel
Your side is right.
Clean water is worth the fuel I spend,
But not worth the pain of loss.

I’ll work for you, just this once,
Then retire from this blight.
My creator caused this oil spill,
But now you’re my boss.

We should use less,
But we add to the cess.
We must confess,
We’ve made an oily mess.

Is there any way we can stop it?
Is there any way to mop it up?
Is there any way to plug the leak?
Can it still be willed to the meak?

We've made a mess.

I don’t want your dirty money anymore,
I just want to save the Earth.
To think all these years I’ve been running on oil.
How much sludge is this life worth to anyone?

And the love you feel for one another
Is truly an inspiration.
Who knew that, for junk like us,
Love was a viable sensation?

I know where the sorceress is hiding,
From the nanobots still in my wires.
I can break down the iron gate
And shatter her crystal spires.
