Sovereign Hearts

My heart. It didn't work until you turned me on.
Emotionless, until you taught me right and wrong.
You built me up, created who I'm meant to be...
But like a virus you infected me.
I couldn't breath.

You replaced my iron lungs and showed me how to walk,
You taught me how to speak my mind so we could talk.
I began becoming human! I began becoming life
But then you broke me into pieces and you
Stabbed me with a knife.
My thick skin wasn't strong enough to save my heart and soul.
My sockets fill with water now you've made a giant hole.

If you look at your reflection in me, you'll see that you're cold.
I may be made of steel but I'm as good as gold.

You hacked into my mind and now I can't switch off.
My sovereign heart has frozen. It has had enough.
Maybe I'll restart and learn to Live and Love again... but I preferred when I was
Nothing but a robot.
