about

A song about a sentient female robot mining for precious minerals beneath the surface of the earth.

lyrics

I am the robot's daughter
One Million feet below
Where my engines toil
Plow the soil
For a liquid prized like gold

I never knew my mother
Father flesh and bone
But heat and pressure made
More than they could take
And I was left down here alone

They use my fruit for weapons
For wars upon their kin
But I dug so deep
They can't hear me weep
As another war begins

Steam o Steam
Come to rescue me
Dream, I will dream that you release me

Once there were the others
I counted them as friends
But my diamond beak made them obsolete
They were melted down again

fuel for all my troubles
Feeding from above
Down a handsome line
Right on time
It will never be enough

Steam o Steam
Come to rescue me
Dream, I will dream that you release me

I am the robot's daughter
One million feet below
Today I held my breath
Though it meant my death
Now their war machine has no fuel to eat
Tell the handsome line vengeance will be mine
With my diggin done
I have finally won
