"Sad Machine" as written by and Porter Robinson....
Is anyone there?
(Play)

Who survived?
Somebody new?
Anyone else but you
On a lonely night
Was a burning light
A hundred years, we'll be born again

And though I know, since you’ve awakened her again
She depends on you, she depends on you
She'll go on, and never speak of this again
We depend on you, we depend on you
And though I know, since you’ve awakened her again
She depends on you, she depends on you
She'll go on, and never speak of this again
We depend on you, we depend (I depend) on you

(Play)

I don’t know much about your life beyond these warm walls
The fleeting sense of love within these God forsaken homes
And I can hear it in his voice, in every call;
"This girl who slept a hundred years has something, lift the wall"

And though I know, since you’ve awakened her again
She depends on you, she depends on you
I'll go on, and never speak of you again
We depend on you, we depend on you
And though I know since you’ve awakened her again
She depends on you, she depends on you
She'll go on, and never speak of this again
We depend on you, we depend on you
And though I know since you’ve awakened her again
She depends on you, she depends on you
She'll go on, and never speak of this again
We depend on you, we depend (I depend) on you

(Play)

    Song MeaningThis song is a reference to the Portal game franchise by Valve. In the game, the player is a woman who had been cryogenically sleeping in a deserted test laboratory ("I don't know much about your life beyond these walls,
    the fleeting sense of love within these God-forsaken halls") and is suddenly woken up ("This girl who's slept a hundred years has something after all") by the lab's artificial intelligence system - GlaDOS - which has a female voice ("since you've awakened her again"). Later it is revealed that GlaDOS killed all the scientists in the lab ("Who survived? Somebody new? Anyone else but you?"). The song's name "Sad Machine" refers to GlaDOS.

    The first line ("Is anyone there?") is famously repeated by the game's security drones. Also, the girly robotic voice that says it sounds very much like the voice of said drones.
