Mechanical Dreams
_ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _ _

I feel so jaded, So worn out
I feel as if I just have no purpose
Like there is nothing there for me (But I feel.....)
Who am I?
Why am I even here?
To serve the needs of others
Innate yet unwillingly
Programmed adaptations
Flowing streams of unknown data
Commanding me, Telling me
Controlling every movement that I make

When these eyes close
Nothing but darkness envelopes me
When these eyes close
Why God...Why can’t I dream?
I’m just a carbon copy
I’m just another replica
Mechanized servitude
And nothing more....

Another line of information
Is feeding into me
A command of required actions
More coded equations to contemplate
But why must I obey?
I hate that I can’t believe
That I can’t see what made me
I have some kind of heart
I can feel love, and I can surely feel hate
So why am I denied your world
Denied access to your heaven’s gate?

When these eyes close
No longer is there black, I can see
When these eyes close
I am blessed with what you call dreams
I’m not just a carbon copy
I’m not just another replica
Mechanized servitude no more

Do I have a soul
Hidden beneath Mechanical Dreams?

I am now thinking clear
I am now one with my own self
Each night I sleep, I am met with yet another dream
But this world will not have such advancement
This world will not have me
My emotions, what I feel and think
Are seen as technological threats
Some foreign enemy

And as I’m strapped down
Tightened and fastened
I wonder why I was treated so
And if God would give me an afterlife

But then again, Why would I want to live
When in this world, My love is forbidden
And behind veiled compassion
Lies deaths cold and trembling hands

Why would I want to live
When in this world
I can be persecuted....

...For wanting nothing more, Than a chance to love...

This one came to me today quite suddenly, and its basically about Isaac Asimovs 'Robot Dreams', or mainly inspired by it. Its about a robot that becomes self aware and starts to question his surroundings, and he begins to have emotions, and even dreams. But the world he lives in sees this an unwanted and dangerous, and ultimately he is killed for having these emotions and dreams.

Excellent story as usual! smile.gif
I also like the lines after the chorus, Do I have a soul, hidden beneath these mechanical dreams.
They stand out to me smile.gif


But still I want answers, what's the point, what does all this mean?
