Mary Lambert – Assembly Line lyrics

[Verse:]
One thing I know
I'm not the same girl
​I couldn't speak
You were too loud in my world
But just because you make noise
You're not powerful
You're not powerful
I've got the last word
Slow down, slow down, slow down
I've got to be heard

[Chorus:]
I'm not a pretty machine in your assembly line
Trying to do what I can, but it's terrifying
I'm taking back all my things and my borrowed time
This life is mine, this life is mine
Running in circles
Running in circles
Running in circles

[Verse 2:]
I'm asking for air
Don't let me suffocate
This isn't love
The world that you have created
I'm standing my ground
While the earth shakes
While the earth shakes
Let the earth shake

[Chorus:]
I'm not a pretty machine in your assembly line
Trying to do what I can, but it's terrifying
I'm taking back all my things and my borrowed time
This life is mine, this life is mine
Running in circles
Running in circles
Running in circles

[Bridge:]
I made peace with the part of me that couldn't leave
I made peace with the part of me that couldn't speak

[Chorus:]
I'm not a pretty machine in your assembly line
Trying to do what I can, but it's terrifying
I'm taking back all my things and my borrowed time
This life is mine, this life is mine
Running in circles
Running in circles
Running in circles
