lyrics

Unblur the lines of your consequence
And take the blame for all that you did
You are responsible for losing focus and never looking ahead
I'm now a shell of what I used to be
My former self a forgotten memory
You are responsible and I am hopelessly wishing I was you

Who would want to live forever...
But who'd want to be dead?

Congratulations, you succeeded in your mission,
Now claim your prize
And don't delay, God only knows what you've been missing
Open your eyes
Reclaim the world and every inch of it that you can see,
You prototype
And yet although you killed the shell you have to leave
The ghost inside

I've paid the price for my punishment
Confessed my sins, and my time is spent
I am responsible for wanting omniscience and immortality
Delete the hell of my own design
Unplug myself and embrace the light
I know it's possible, I will control this, for it's a part of me

I don't want to feel alone here...
So hear my S.O.S.

Congratulations, you succeeded in your mission,
Now claim your prize
And don't delay, God only knows what you've been missing
Open your eyes
Reclaim the world and every inch of it that you can see,
You prototype
And yet although you killed the shell you have to leave
The ghost inside

Define me, define me
Am I friend or foe?
I'm trying, I'm trying
But I just can't let go
Align me, align me,
(On) Which side do I fight?
Come find me, please find me
I want to be alive!

Define me, define me...
Come find me, please find me...
____

I cannot find the evidence
And I'm unable to believe:
Do I have a real consciousness,
Or am I just a... machine?
