I saw the mirror staring back at me
And it told me I'm a self machine
I saw the mirror staring back at me
And it told me I'm a self machine

It said I gave you these scars
And I gave you these wounds
I told you the false
And I showed you the truth

I saw the mirror staring back at me
And it told me I'm a self machine

Lonely robot in a wasteland,
rusting in a lonely harbour
Lonely robot in a wasteland
rusting in the harbour's water

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop

And the impression of my self machine
The word was spoken and it was foreseen
Now we're too well too bothered in between
A pic so lost on my computer screen

Lonely robot in a wasteland,
rusting in a lonely harbour
Lonely robot in a wasteland
rusting in the harbour's water

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop

Wait harbor, wait
Water still, water still
And shake, the ground will shake
Out stand still, out stand still

Lonely robot in a wasteland,
rusting in a lonely harbour
Lonely robot in a wasteland
rusting in the harbour's water

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop

I'm not a human if you say I'm not
I'm not a human if my hinges lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop
