02 Human

There’s a darkness in me / A hole that never heals / And I like the way it feels / Sometimes...

The cyborg was once truly human, but he had begun to accept the modifications - small at first, then gradually larger - each augmentation promising a better, longer, more prosperous life. 

In what ways have you altered your humanness for the sake of survival?

Human

 

Said I wouldn’t want more than my hands could hold

Said I wouldn’t take more than my weight in gold

Said I wouldn’t make noise—I’d leave quietly

Said I wouldn’t wage war but you’re forcing me

Said I wouldn’t lose sore—I don’t give a damn

Said I wouldn’t need you—I know who I am

Said I wouldn’t tell lies but I’m lying now

Said I wouldn’t give blood but I’m bleeding out

 

There’s a darkness in me

A hole that never heals

And I like the way it feels

Sometimes

 

Said I couldn’t trade honor for sacrifice

Said I couldn’t be silenced for any price

Said I couldn’t come back after what we’d done

Said I couldn’t get caught with a smoking gun

Said I couldn’t do better—I’m not so sure

Said I couldn’t get burned on a lust so pure  

Said I couldn’t get spoiled by the gifts you flaunt

Said I couldn’t get hooked—now you’re all I want

 

There’s a darkness in me

A hole that never heals

And I like the way it feels

Sometimes

 

You put this in me

This hole that never heals

And I like the way it feels

Sometimes

 

You make me human

You make me cry

You make me human

Keep me alive

 

Forget what I might do

If I weren’t on your side

Forget the world

I’m here to stay—I’m here to stay

 

Forget what I might do

I’m always by your side

I’m yours to take—I’m yours to take
