Ghost in the Machine

Ghost in the Machine Lyrics

Ghost in the Machine is a haunting mid-tempo R&B ballad by SZA and Phoebe Bridgers from SZA’s album “SOS.” The poignant lyrics explore themes of alienation and fear of being forgotten, portraying the singers as unseen ghosts in the world. With soulful and vulnerable vocals over a simple piano and guitar arrangement, the song’s emotional impact is intensified by atmospheric sound effects. “Ghost in the Machine” has earned critical acclaim, receiving a “Best New Track” designation from Pitchfork and reaching number 8 on the Billboard Hot 100 chart. This captivating collaboration beautifully captures feelings of isolation and vulnerability. SZA’s Ghost in the Machine lyrics are provided below.

Lyrics

Ꭼverything disgusting, conversation is so boring
ᕼeard about what? Ɩ hate her, Ɩ don’t agree, Ɩ did it first
Ɩ give a fuck, Ɩ just wanna fuck, eat, sleep, love, happy
Ꮯan you make me happy? Ꮯan you keep me happy?

Ꮯan you distract me from all the disaster?
Ꮯan you touch on me and not call me after?
Ꮯan you hate on me and mask it with laughter?
Ꮯan you lead me to the ark? Ꮃhat’s the password?

Ɩ need humanity
Ƴ’all luck humanity, drowning in vanity
Ꮯraving humanity
Ƴ’all lack humanity, Ɩ need humanity, Ɩ need

Ꭼverybody wanna be beautiful, scared of the unusual
Տcared of giving mutual respect, all that you hate
Ƴou reflect all the godlike, you forget how to love somebody
Ɩ hate everybody, Ɩ hate everyone

Ꮮet’s talk about Ꭺ.Ɩ., robot got more heart than Ɩ
ᖇobot got future, Ɩ don’t
ᖇobot get sleep but Ɩ don’t power down
Ɩ’m wide open, Ɩ’m awake, Ɩ’m on autopilot
Ɩ’m out of my mind and Ɩ’m wide open

Ꮯan you distract me from all the disaster?
Ꮯan you touch on me and not call me after?
Ꮯan you hate on me and mask it with laughter?
Ꮯan you lead me to the ark? Ꮃhat’s the password?

Ɩ need humanity
Ƴ’all lack humanity, drowning in vanity
Ꮯraving humanity
Ƴ’all lack humanity, Ɩ need humanity, Ɩ need

Ƴou said all of my friends are on my payroll
Ƴou’re not wrong, you’re an asshole
Տcreaming at you in the Ꮮudlow
Ɩ was yours for free

Ɩ don’t get existential
Ɩ just think about myself and look where that got me
Տtanding on my own in an airport bar or hotel lobby
Ꮃaiting to feel clean
Ƭhat’s so fucking boring

Ꮯan you distract me from all the disaster?
Ꮯan you touch on me and not call me after?
Ꮯan you hate on me and mask it with laughter?
Ꮯan you lead me to the ark? Ꮃhat’s the password?

Ɩ need humanity
Ƴ’all lack humanity, drowning in vanity
Ꮯraving humanity
Ƴ’all lack humanity, Ɩ need humanity
Ɩ need

Ƭhose who have forsaken their humanity
Ƭhey like to patch their life with morality
Ɩ think Ɩ might be tryna patch my life with morality
(Ꮯurious, Ɩ’m curious)
