Check your humanity, you won’t need it here… Song 120

Sometimes it seems like we’re on a downward spiral into building our own cages. Our connections only appear to be real. They’re usually not real. We always have a wall, a mask, some camouflage. Once we hide everything that makes us human, are we still human or just empty machines?

Song 120: “Empty Machines”

Tears fall from the statue, crying out loud
I only want to save you

Midnight calls upon you, sneaking like a thief
I want to steal who you are

Wires upon wires, gears within gears
All we are are cogs in empty machines gone cold

Check your humanity, you won’t need it here
I want to welcome you home

Wires upon wires, gears within gears
All we are are cogs in empty machines gone cold

You’re in my trap now
You’re in my trap now
