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'
