It's been like this from the start
One piece after another to make my heart
You mistake the game for being smart
Stand here, sell this, and hit your mark
But the sound of the steel
And the crush and the grind
It'll scream cause who am I to decide my life
But in time it all dies
There's nothing left inside
Just rusted metal that was never even mine

I would scream
But I'm just this hollow shell
Waiting here
Begging please
God, set me free so I can feel

Hey!
Stop trying to live my life for me,
I need to breathe
I'm not your robot
Stop telling me I'm part of this big machine
I'm breaking free
Can't you see?
I can love
I can speak
Without somebody else operating me
You gave me eyes and now I see
I'm not your robot
I'm just me

All this time,
I've been misled
There was nothing but crossed wires in my head
I've been taught to think about what I feel
Doesn't matter at all until you say it's real

I would scream
But I'm just this hollow shell
Waiting here
Begging please
Set me free so I can feel

Hey!
Stop trying to live my life for me,
I need to breathe
I'm not your robot
Stop telling me I'm part of this big machine
I'm breaking free
Can't you see?
I can love
I can speak
Without somebody else operating me
You gave me eyes and now I see
I'm not your robot
I'm just me

I'm not your robot
I'm just me
I'm not your robot

I would scream
But I'm just this hollow shell
Waiting here
Begging please
Set me free so I can feel

Hey!
Stop trying to live my life for me,
I need to breathe
I'm not your robot
Stop telling me I'm part of this big machine
I'm breaking free
Can't you see?
I can love
I can speak
Without somebody else operating me
You gave me eyes and now I see
I'm not your robot
I'm just me

I'm not your robot
I'm just me
I'm not your robot!
