  • I saw the mirror staring back at me
    And it told me I'm a self machine
    I saw the mirror staring back at me
    And it told me I'm a self machine

    It said I gave you these scars
    And I gave you these wounds
    I told you the false
    And I showed you the truth

    I saw the mirror staring back at me
    And it told me I'm a self machine

    Lonely robot in a wasteland,
    rusting in a lonely harbour
    Lonely robot in a wasteland
    rusting in the harbour's water

    I'm not a human if you say I'm not
    I'm not a human if my hinges lock
    And this motor that you call my heart
    Is another machine that won't stop

    And the impression of my self machine
    The word was spoken and it was foreseen
    Now we're too well too bothered in between
    A pic so lost on my computer screen

    Lonely robot in a wasteland,
    rusting in a lonely harbour
    Lonely robot in a wasteland
    rusting in the harbour's water

    I'm not a human if you say I'm not
    I'm not a human if my hinges lock
    And this motor that you call my heart
    Is another machine that won't stop

    Wait harbor, wait
    Water still, water still
    And shake, the ground will shake
    Out stand still, out stand still

    Lonely robot in a wasteland,
    rusting in a lonely harbour
    Lonely robot in a wasteland
    rusting in the harbour's water

    I'm not a human if you say I'm not
    I'm not a human if my hinges lock
    And this motor that you call my heart
    Is another machine that won't stop

    I'm not a human if you say I'm not
    I'm not a human if my hinges lock
    And this motor that you call my heart
    Is another machine that won't stop Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind
