LyricsEdit

[Verse 1]
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 all screams, "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

[Pre-Chorus]
I would scream
But I'm just this hollow shell
Waiting here
Begging, "Please, set me free so I can feel."
Hey

[Chorus]
Stop trying to live my life for me
I need to breathe
I'm not your robot
Stop telling me I'm part of the big machine
I'm breaking free
Can't you see?
I can move, 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

[Verse 2]
All this time, I've been misled
There were nothing but crossed wires in my head
I've been taught to think that what I feel
Doesn't matter at all till you say it's real

[Pre-Chorus]
I would scream
But I'm just this hollow shell
Waiting here
Begging, "Please, set me free so I can feel."
Hey

[Chorus]
Stop trying to live my life for me
I need to breathe
I'm not your robot
Stop telling me I'm part of the big machine
I'm breaking free
Can't you see?
I can move, 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

[Pre-Chorus]
I would scream
But I'm just this hollow shell
Waiting here
Begging, "Please, set me free so I can feel."
Hey

[Chorus]
Stop trying to live my life for me
I need to breathe
I'm not your robot
Stop telling me I'm part of the big machine
I'm breaking free
Can't you see?
I can move, 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
