With limbs made of metal
Working loom and pedal
Puppeteering all my actions by its strings
Creator of commotion
Guiding all emotion
It is no longer calling reason it's king
But I'm fine
'Cause ignorance is bliss
I doubt you'll savor this
Well, apathy is an art

I am the ghost in the machine
Overriding all the rational
And you have come to know my name

This circus of circuitry
Has gotten the best of me
Instinctual behavior at the helm
So swallow both lock and key
No longer considered free
Disconnect and join your new kingship's realm
But I'm fine
'Cause ignorance is bliss
I doubt you'll savor this
I'll tear this machine apart

I am the ghost in the machine
Overriding all the rational
And you have come to know my name

But if this ghost is in this machine
Then why do I feel the warmth?
Of this hand that's outstretched towards me
Whispering "you're in control."

I am the ghost in the machine
And you have come to know
(My name, my name)
And you know how-
Oh the words that kept you begging for more
Than what you bargained for

I am the ghost in the machine
Overriding all the rational
And you have come to know my name
Head in hands, you know who's really to blame
