I realise I’m about a year behind but I’m kind of obsessed with this song at the moment. It’s like a one-woman tour through the dark heart of the Disney channel. Somewhat ironiaclly it’s autotuned to hell on the album – the girl can sing live though..

It’s been like this from the start
One piece after another to make my heart
You mistake the game for being smart
Stand here, sell this, and hit your mark

But the sound of the steel
and the crush, and the grind
it will scream – who am I, to decide my life?
But in time it will die, they’ll be nothing left inside
Just rusted metal that was never even mine
I would scream, but I’m just this hollow shell
Waiting here, begging please
set me free, so I can feel

Stop trying to live my life for me
I need to breath, I’m not your robot
Stop telling me I’m a part of the big machine
Im breaking free, can’t you see
I can’t love, I can’t speak
Without somebody else operating me
You gave me eyes, and now I see
I’m not your robot, I’m just me
