I Am Not A Machine - Song Lyrics

I Am Not A Machine - Copyright 2006 Charles Sjolander
I Am Not A Machine

Written 1995

Verse 1:
I rise and go to work my dear 
in the early morning light
in the speeding box my thoughts are clear 
but thoughts are dead before the night

Refrain:
it's a lie I am not a machine
I can not be replaced like some defective part
it's a lie I am not a machine 
I have a soul I have a heart

Verse 2:
my body is growing old I fear 
well before it's time
one day at work I'll disappear 
and no one sees the crime

Refrain.

Verse 3:
in dreams we often fly away 
to a paradise
but it's another bloody working day 
to pray and roll the dice

Refrain.

I have a heart
