​Selfmachine

This song is by I Blame Coco and appears on the album The Constant (2010).

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

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

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

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 engines lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop
In the impression of my selfmachine
The word was spoken and it was foreseen

Then I am powered by this gasoline
My eyes lit up as if by kerosene
See consolations and stars
And the powers that be
Engaged in a dance
This robotic routine
Are we two worlds apart or in between
A pixel lost on the 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 engines lock
And this motor that you call my heart
Is another machine that won't stop
It won't stop

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

Wait harbour, 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
Won't stop

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