haven't done this in a while...

I used to semi-regularly post some of my favorite song lyrics. I think I'll start doing that again. This time it's the song 'Savannah' by the metalcore band Zao. The story behind the song is that the vocalist for the band read a news article about a former adult film star named Savannah who was injured in a car accident. Her face was disfigured, and this trauma was too much for her, so she committed suicide. A grim reminder of what can happen whenever human beings are objectified and 'mechanized'. Never forget that we are all alive beneath our shells...

A day not to forget
The machine has collapsed under the program it's been given
Look inside the broken shell
Look inside the broken shell
To see the broken heart
They can't believe the machine was alive but we saw it bleed
We saw it bleed
The machine it falls apart and when it's cut it bleeds
The machine bleeds
She was alive
