Been trying to move on
Been black and blue
Trying to turn the old
Into something new
You found somebody
I found someone too
She got everything I need
Yeah but she's not you

I locked my love into the ground
Hoped it never could be found
Body slowly shutting down
And now I am…

I'm still alive but I can't feel
I got stuff inside but it's not real
They say I'm fine but I feel synthetic
Nothing human left in me
I'm just a machine full of moving parts
I got emptiness where I used to have a heart
I'm still breathing but I'm synthetic
Nothing human left in me
Nothing human about me

No emotion
Just autotune
Left who I was back there with you
Maybe I died
And I kept movin'
In a body made of plastic and glue

I locked my love into the ground
Hoped it never could be found
Body slowly shutting down
And now I am…

I'm still alive but I can't feel
I got stuff inside but it's not real
They say I'm fine but I feel synthetic
Nothing human left in me
I'm just a machine full of moving parts
I got emptiness where I used to have a heart
I'm still breathing but I'm synthetic
Nothing human left in me
Nothing human about me
