Ode to the girl I wish I was
I am robot woman, humming the song of war
I’ve been here before
A million times and tries
A million smiles and lies
I don’t want to play games.
I am soldier woman, I have will power of steel
And I don’t feel remorse for those I cut away.
I won’t follow orders,
I stand up when told to sit down,
I scream when I’m told to be quiet.
I am robot woman, watch me resist like only metal can.
Nettles can’t sting me.
Because I am made of elements you haven’t even heard of.
You can’t tempt me or persuade me.
Please torture me, because fortunately,
I feel pain, but steel doesn’t blame
Its fame On strength.
Steel was made because there was weakness.
So watch the bullets hit me
Watch me dent and bend
But never break.
Metal doesn’t snap, it simmers and slowly melts
And I felt my heart dissolve as I resolved
And light my life on fire
Because gold forged in flames is stronger
And lasts longer.
I am robot woman, watch me get my own way
Watch me slice through souls of ice
I’m not nice, I’m powerful
Metal isn’t sweet
And the heat that it absorbs
Converts to energy that’s used to save lives
And I crave highs as much as the next human
But I shatter myself, and clatter the pieces
All over the world, I hurled my heart
Onto a canvas, called it art
Because I knew it was beautiful.
I reshaped my soul, It’s made of tin
And its a sin to try and recreate God’s work
So I lurk, in the shadows
And on the edge of a crowd
Hiding my love
Until push comes to shove
And I wrestle the old man above
For my right
My mongrel, homemade heart.
I am robot woman, full of numbers
I am indestructible.
And so many have tried
To soften me
They’ve ended up in a coffin see,
I don’t do what I’m told.
My blood is liquid gold
I am priceless
And you should hear me
When I say fear me
Because robot woman
Is on a mission
To stop wishin
For a better world
And to instead, burn the old one.
A new life
For her robot dream.
