Ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ahhh ah ah ah ah
Ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ahhh ah ah ah ah

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'll die, 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
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 the big machine
I'm breaking free, can't you see
I can move, I can think
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 that what I feel doesn't matter at all,
Till' 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 the big machine
I'm breaking free, can't you see
I can move, I can think
Without somebody else operating me
You gave me eyes, and now I see
I'm not your robot, I'm just me
(Ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ahhh ah ah ah ah)
I'm not your robot, I'm just me
(Ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ahhh ah ah ah ah)
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 the big machine
I'm breaking free, can't you see
I can move, I can think
Without somebody else operating me
You gave me eyes, and now I see
I'm not your robot, I'm just me
(Ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ahhh ah ah ah ah)
I'm not your robot, I'm just me
(Ahhh ahh ahhh ahh ahhh ah ah ah ah)
I'm not your robot

    I like this song, it's got a good beat, and great lyrics. To me the song is about someone trying to control her, and she's trying to stand up to them by saying she's not their 'robot'

    Disney trying to control Miley, this is what It's all about. She was like this from the start (It's been like this from the start) and she got really tired of not getting to do what she wanted. She wanted to be better than gaga, but like gaga since she was 16. She said it in her first interview with alan carr chatty man. You can check on YouTube. She also did the tongue thing back then and was exactly the same, only she was under the shadow of hannah montana who was a role model for many kids including me. She was forced to be good and inspiring but now shes out of Disney contract and is really happy about it. I'm happy for her too. I can not hate her no matter what happens, some of my most memorable days of the past are singing fly on the wall with my bff, watching hannah montana and talking about it the very next day, and that best of both worlds concert, which was my first concert ever. I'm going to a Katy Perry concert next!
    Proud of you Miley, you are still my role model because of the power you have within you. You influence so many people for so many things and your songs might not be all truly written by you but it still carries a really strong hidden message most of the times, and you have the most innovative ideas in this planet and a really nice voice. You are doing much better than any other 23 year old I can name. I can also really relate to you, don't know why. We might get to meet some day. I hope we do. And I am not silly and air headed enough to get influenced by Miley for doing drugs! If you wanna, you eventually will and if you don't wanna, you won't. Milwy is old enough to make her own decisions and her parents approve of them, no matter what other people might think about it. She is almost perfectly normal and I know that somewhere under all those dirty publicity stunts is a hidden nice side of Miley which she doesn't show on stage, she looks so innocent when she smiles. Perhaps that's why she doesn't smile.
