lyrics

Been trying to move on
Been black and blue
Trying to turn the old
Into something new
You found somebody
I found someone too
She got everything I need
Yeah but she's not you

I locked my love into the ground
Hoped it never could be found
Body slowly shutting down
And now I am...

I'm still alive but I can't feel
I got stuff inside but it's not real
They say I'm fine but I feel synthetic
Nothing human left in me
I'm just a machine full of moving parts
I got emptiness where I used to have a heart
I'm still breathing but I'm synthetic
Nothing human left in me
Nothing human about me

No emotion
Just autotune
Left who I was back there with you
Maybe I died
And I kept movin'
In a body made of plastic and glue

I locked my love into the ground
Hoped it never could be found
Body slowly shutting down
And now I am...

I'm still alive but I can't feel
I got stuff inside but it's not real
They say I'm fine but I feel synthetic
Nothing human left in me
I'm just a machine full of moving parts
I got emptiness where I used to have a heart
I'm still breathing but I'm synthetic
Nothing human left in me
Nothing human about me

about

The Midnight Los Angeles, California

There is a Japanese term: Mono no aware. It means basically, the sad beauty of seeing time pass - the aching awareness of impermanence. These are the days that we will return to one day in the future only in memories.

The Midnight consists of Tyler Lyle (a songwriter from the Deep South) and Tim McEwan (a producer from Denmark).
