I Am Machine Three Days Grace

I Am Machine | Day 341

I Am Machine is a song about being so numb inside that you need to cut yourself to feel something,..anything.  It’s a place where I was many, many years ago.

I Am Machine Three Days GraceI Am Machine expresses a state of being that really has no state of being.  It’s a place that I was in many years ago while I was in my 20s.  While I never cut myself, the song has elements of this action.  Back in the day, I would have identified with the lyrics had I heard the song.  When you are numb, or rather dead inside, you are like a machine, going through your tasks of everyday life.  Everything seems pointless and feeling,..anything is welcome.  I knew that something wasn’t right, but when you are numb to yourself and the world, actions towards getting better, is irrelevant.  Close relationships almost seem like watching a movie that you are indifferent towards the characters.  They can live, they can die, and you don’t care about them, or about yourself.  I’ve been there, and I’m here now and I’m not a machine any more.  For those that might be reading this who are in that state right now, there is a light at the end.  Sounds cliche, but it’s the truth.

Only 24 days left…

Lyrics:

Here’s to being human
All the pain and suffering
There’s beauty in the bleeding
At least you feel something

I wish I knew what it was like
To care enough to carry on
I wish I knew what it was like
To find a place where I belong, but

I am machine
I never sleep
I keep my eyes wide open
I am machine
A part of me
Wishes I could just feel something
I am machine
I never sleep
Until I fix what’s broken
I am machine
A part of me
Wishes I could just feel something

Here’s to being human
Taking it for granted
The highs and lows of living
To getting second chances

I wish I knew what it was like
To care about what’s right or wrong
I wish someone could help me find
Find a place where I belong, but

I am machine
I never sleep
I keep my eyes wide open
I am machine
A part of me
Wishes I could just feel something
I am machine
I never sleep
Until I fix what’s broken
I am machine
A part of me
Wishes I could just feel something

It wasn’t supposed to be this way
We were meant to feel the pain
I don’t like what I am becoming
Wish I could just feel something

I am machine
I never sleep
I keep my eyes wide open
I am machine
A part of me
Wishes I could just feel something
I am machine
I never sleep
Until I fix what’s broken
I am machine
A part of me
Wishes I could just feel something.
