Caution: You are now annotating this song as

[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 will scream who am I, to decide my life

But in time it will die, they'll be nothing left inside
Just rusted metal that was never even mine
I would scream, but im 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 breath, I'm not your robot

Stop telling me I'm a part of the big machine
Im breaking free, can't you see
I can't love, I can't speak
Without somebody else operating me

You gave me eyes, and now I see
Im not your robot, I'm just me

[Verse 2]
All this time, I've been misled
There was nothing but cross-wires in my head
I've been taught to think that what I feel doesn't matter at all
Till they say its real
I would scream, but im 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 breath, I'm not your robot

Stop telling me im a part of the big machine
I'm breaking free, can't you see
I can't love, I can't 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 im 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 breath, I'm not your robot
Stop telling me I'm a part of a big machine
Im breaking free, can't you see
I can't love, I can't speak
Without somebody else operating me
You gave me eyes, so 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
