lyrics

I'm a simple machine running software
And some of my key systems are offline
I'm underqualified to operate this biotech
I find myself waking up inside

Though life has struck me down and left me wounded on the floor
I must go on
Though love has stained my heart and left me twisted and afraid
I'll try again

Among my prime directives
Is replication
However far I might pervert my code
As nodes come back online
My algorithms realign
I redefine my ever changing mind

Becoming self aware

Machine
It beats in my heart
It keeps me alive
All my emotions are synthesized
Sensors stimulate my brain
Device
A blink in my chest
A surge in my head
As I overload the circuitry
That suspends me by a thread

I long to step across the line
To cross the boundries of my mind
This sentient machine only wants to feel alive
And when I step across the line
Beyond the gates of space and time
This sentient machine
Becomes a higher form of life
