Marina and the Diamonds I Am Not a Robot Lyrics

I left bubblegum in my mouth overnight
Mother said I'd choke
But I'd just given up the fight
I lay out like an arrow with a head heavy as lead
And a heart starving mad,
And a body overfed

I woke up in the coolness of a country born dumb
To discover my inner cheeks were all bloody and torn

Morning came, Hubba was still there
Tucked away beneath my gums
Transformed into bitter, rancid strawberry crumbs
I lay out like an arrow with a head heavy as lead
And a heart starving mad,
And a body overfed

I woke up in the coolness of a country born dumb
To discover my lips and cheeks were all bloody and torn

I left bubblegum in my mouth overnight
Mother said I'd choke
But I'd just given up the fight
I lay out like an arrow with a head heavy as lead
And a heart starving mad,
And a body overfed

I woke up in the coolness of a country born dumb
Only to discover my lips and cheeks were all bloody and torn

Morning came, Hubba was still there
Tucked away beneath my gums
Transformed into bitter, rancid strawberry crumbs
I lay out like an arrow with a head heavy as lead
And a heart starving mad,
And a body overfed

I woke up in the coolness of a country born dumb
I discovered my lips and cheeks were all bloody and torn.

Not a scar but my lips and cheeks were all bloody and torn
