about

You hear the phrase "I'm not a robot" a lot, these days, used for fighting the corner of human imperfection.

This is a more remorseful take on that statement

lyrics

I am
I am not a robot
But I
But I wish I was
All these
Troublesome emotions
Stand in the
Way of what I want

I am
I am not a robot
But I
But I wish I was
Plug me
In like a computer
Program
What it is you want from me

I have many functions
I do well in most things
But without the gumption
I am trapped inside a shell that's so restricting that it stings

I am
I am not a robot
I'm not
Fortunate enough
With my
Body, mind organic
I just
Haven't got the stuff it takes

To reach my potential
Like an old ball and chain
All of these credentials
Would be so much more appealing in a clean metallic brain

I am
I am not a robot X 4

about

Henri Green London, UK

Blunt and merciless singer/songwriter who rarely says what she thinks, so she sings it instead. Loudly. And with vigour.
