How, in every visible way you shine
As if the stars in your wake align
Almost impossible to malign

But just below where you shine, you burn
Although I know it, I never learn
Just goes to show that I can't discern

Aluminum to me, aluminum to some
You can shine like silver all you want
But you're just aluminum

Illuminating just what you want to show
You'd never rust but I'd never know
You can't be trusted, I can't let go

Why should it come as a big surprise?
It’s just an element of disguise
Even your emotions are anodized

Aluminum to me, aluminum to some
You can shine like silver all you want
But you're just aluminum

Every time you're here, I forget
When you leave, you leave only regret
Every time you're here, I forget everything [Incomprehensible]

You're so lightweight
You're so lightweight, how can you survive?
You're so lightweight, how can you survive?
Recycling moments of others' lives
[Incomprehensible] emotions are anodized

Aluminum to me, aluminum to some
You can shine like silver all you want
But you're just aluminum
Yeah, you're just aluminum
