Robot

no i'm not a cold robot
programmed to act human
in fact i feel a lot more than i did
before my flesh and bones were hidden from view

still it's true my hips don't move
my eyes avoid unknown androids
my lips can't smile convincingly
my words repeat repeatedly i feel you

but deep in my circuitry
there's a soul in me you can't see
oh but it's alright when i let it be

sure i know your low times show
your cheeks get wet, your hair's upset
your phrases tend to bend and break
your body curls your whole shape shakes like thunder

so what if you have not learned
to hide the side that breathes and burns
to shield your parts from user error
never let the air out there get under
like me

deep in my circuitry
there's a soul you see, hopefully
and if you sit tight it just might break free

then my lights, my knobs, my levers
all yours to turn forever

no i'm not a cold robot
programmed to act human
in fact i feel
