I have never been the winner or the best Knew that all my life I was different from the rest Knew I had a fire that was burning in my chest Waiting for the moment, prayed that I would pass the test Wondered why if there was a God, why'd he let me down? Why'd he take away my father when I needed him around? Why'd he let them surround me, let them almost drown me Let them suffocate my spirit so I couldn't find me? And I, I kept my head down and I kept silent Make too much noise and they would become violent Make too much noise and I'd pay with my tears Knew that no one would believe me for all these years And I looked for a way out and I found it in the stars If I looked beyond this world, then I wouldn't see the scars On my body, in my heart, in my soul torn apart Science fiction put me back together, let me hit restart Chorus: You can never keep me down 'Cause I will run far away As long as I am sheltered I am sheltered by my great escape Think you can hurt me now? 'Cause I am no longer afraid As long as I am sheltered I am sheltered by my great escape And this is my great escape Raise my eyes to the future, hoped that it'd be better Was an overachiever, yeah, a real go-getter If I pushed myself harder, maybe I'd become stronger Maybe I would form a shield, feel the pain no longer But I can't forget the way it seemed How everybody looked at me It wasn't just my family Like I was an anomaly Too fat, too Asian, bipolar, you don't know me Underneath this skin of mine lies a certain kind of beauty And I believed, I believed that I would grow From an ugly duck into a swan, and yeah, I'd fly I'd freakin' soar And as each day would pass, I'd love myself a little more And I would be a little less broken than before But they kept hatin' me, continuously beratin' me When secretly inside, they was wishin' they was datin' me I know I can't change the past or my memories But I won't let that keep me from my dreams Chorus: You can never keep me down 'Cause I will run far away As long as I am sheltered I am sheltered by my great escape Think you can hurt me now? 'Cause I am no longer afraid As long as I am sheltered I am sheltered by my great escape Bridge: All those books, all those films, they're an inspiration Taught me that I could live through my own creations That one day, I'd achieve all my aspirations That my life was my own This is my narration All those books, all those films, they're an inspiration Taught me that I could live through my own creations That one day, I'd achieve all my aspirations That my life was my own This is my narration Chorus: You can never keep me down 'Cause I will run far away As long as I am sheltered I am sheltered by my great escape Think you can hurt me now? 'Cause I am no longer afraid As long as I am sheltered I am sheltered by my great escape And this is my great escape And this is my great escape This is the story of a fangirl

Hey Deckard 04:30
LA, California, 2019 Living in eternal darkness The acid rain's green Tyrell Corporation Their god reigns supreme With their science and their money And their servitude and greed Perched high atop the city Lookin' down on these peons Replicants, rebels Roy, Pris, Zhora, Leon Runnin' for their lives Blade Runner right behind them Hands shake when you kill 'em Hope you don't find 'em Pre-chorus: Show me the differences between you and me If you prick me, if you cut me Tell me, do I not bleed? Though my eyes are engineered Tell me, do they not see? Though my lungs are manufactured Tell me, do they not breathe? With these ears, do I not hear? Do I not speak with this mouth of mine? Do I not need to believe That the god who made you Is the god who made me? Do I not have a right As a man to breathe free? Chorus: Hey Deckard Can you take that Voigt Kampff test too? Tell me what you're gonna do When you discover that you're not like the others More human than human You are Blade Runner Hey Deckard Can you take that Voigt Kampff test too? Tell me what you're gonna do When you discover that you're not like the others More human than human You are Blade Runner More human than human You are Blade Runner I was birthed off-world Near the Tannhauser gate With the starlights flickering C-beams glittering Ships on fire off the shoulder of Orion Four-year lifespan Now I lay here dyin' What is it that makes us human? Are we to be born into slavery? What about these memories? What about the times I have loved And I've lost? And I've cried and I've hurt? Haven't I paid the cost?

Dream of electric sheep? Don't I feel? Don't I know love in the same way that I know pain? Moments lost in time like tears in the rain Pre-chorus: Show me the differences between you and me If you prick me, if you cut me Tell me, do I not bleed? Though my eyes are engineered Tell me, do they not see? Though my lungs are manufactured Tell me, do they not breathe? With these ears, do I not hear? Do I not speak with this mouth of mine?

Ghost 05:20
208 in progress Section 9, Newport City Motoko, shut it down Get down to the nitty gritty I catch the hackers hacking ghosts Like assassins, I fire rounds Heads explode, magic happens They never see me comin' I thermoptic camouflage it You got a secret meeting? No, you don't I sabotaged it You try to see me But your vision goes clear Move my hand down my face And I disappear Pre-chorus: And I dream 'bout my design Wondering what I left behind When my body went robotic Did I lose my mind? If I look into the mirror Will I fear what I find? Do my cyborg eyes see a soul Or am I blind? I keep thinkin' That I'm sinkin' That I'm drowning in the water Swallow fear and anxiety There's hope to be found here From the darkness, I shall rise I shall break through the surface And I know that it's calling me My destiny, my purpose Chorus: (Ni-go-zero-ichi) Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? I got static in my brain But I blame it on PMS Might be on my period But I'm cool under stress Might be half-machine But look good in a dress Fierce on the outside But inside, I'm a mess I see some dark dealings Lies and manipulations Section 6 Megatech Body Corporation Top players can't control Project 2501 They're the puppets He's the master Evolution has begun Pre-chorus: And I dream 'bout my design Wondering what I left behind When my body went robotic Did I lose my mind? If I look into the mirror Will I fear what I find? Do my cyborg eyes see a soul Or am I blind? I keep thinkin' That I'm sinkin' That I'm drowning in the water Swallow fear and anxiety There's hope to be found here From the darkness, I shall rise I shall break through the surface And I know that it's calling me My destiny, my purpose Chorus: (Ni-go-zero-ichi) Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? Bridge: (Ni-go-zero-ichi) I was born in the sea of information I was born in the sea of information If I merge, what will I become? If I merge, what will I become? If I merge, what will I become? (Ni-go-zero-ichi) I was born in the sea of information I was born in the sea of information If I merge, what will I become? If I merge, what will I become? If I merge, what will I become? Ni-go-zero-ichi Dive Chorus: (Ni-go-zero-ichi) Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? (Ni-go-zero-ichi) Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? Ghost in the shell, ghost in the machine Phantasms that haunt me, haunt me in my dreams Complicate my thoughts so that nothing's what it seems I can hear the ghosts, but can they hear me? For now, we see through a glass darkly

In Africa, it all began With the dawn of man Hominids, monolith Our evolution was at hand A bone became a tool Became a weapon Became power Kill the leopard Kill the leader Make the other men cower Fast forward to the future On the Clavius base Past the Sea of Tranquility In darkest space With the earthlight shining Stars aligning Intelligent designing High-pitched whining 18 months later and they're sending us to Jupiter Half our crew's in stasis, but we'll wake 'em when we get there Feels like something's watchin' me 2001 Space Odyssey H-A-L-9000 series Could he be the enemy? Red light, red light Computer says no It's the all-seeing eye And he won't let me go HAL's behavior is suspicious Personality capricious Who'd have thought him so malicious? Killing Frank was too damn vicious Chorus: Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever Read my lips, I'm gonna shut you down Risk exposure to vacuum I'll come around Don't you beg me for forgiveness You're infected with a sickness Paranoia, you're so twisted Murderer, and I'm the witness What the hell you doin'? Why you singin' Daisy? Got me wonderin' what's wrong with you You actin' crazy It was all for a mission It was all for a vision It was my evolution End of line, no transmission Chorus: Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever Bridge: I look in the face of infinity What do I see staring back at me? It is a vortex of light Of colors, of space Strange phenomena Strange landscapes Suddenly old And suddenly dying Who am I watching? Where am I lying? I am reborn There's no denying I have become the Starchild Chorus: Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever Oh my god, oh my god It's full of stars, full of stars And it goes on forever And it goes on forever
