"Written in the perspective of an AI physical robot singing to its human creator: human creates the robot to fulfill all its desires and needs of emotional and intellectual connection. The chorus resolves to ‘Is it the greed? I wish I knew how to love you but you take it with no consent and I don’t know how to contend, I’m just plastic skin’. The robot basically points out that based on the data analysis of the erratic and unpredictable demands of human emotional needs, love proves to be inconclusive" - Portrait XO
