Auto Pilot

It is not enough For you to want to save me Not even all your love Could serve to liberate me So flee from me in fear Do not allow your emotions to be stirred Dry your eyes of their empathic tears They will only leave your vision blurred For I am a soulless mechanism seeking only my own gratification A force of powerful pessimism My life a result of such manifestation So sweet of you to offer your light But my void will blot it out You can't illuminate the darkness inside Into the darkness I will drag you down This isn't who I wanted to be It's who I've become just the same Your eyes may be open but you'll never see And I can no further explain
