SZA - Ghost in the Machine (feat. Phoebe Bridgers)

[Verse 1: SZA]
Everything disgusting, conversation is so boring
Heard about what?
"I hate her," "I don't agree," "I did it first"
I give a fuck
I just wanna fuck, eat, sleep, love happy
Can you make me happy? Can you keep me happy?

[Pre-Chorus: SZA]
Can you distract me from all the disaster?
Can you touch on me and not call me after?
Can you hate on me and mask it with laughter?
Can you lead me to the ark? What's the password?
[Chorus: SZA]
I need humanity
You're like humanity, drowning in vanity
Craving humanity
You're like humanity, I need humanity
I need–

[Verse 2: SZA]
Everybody wanna be beautiful, scared of the unusual
Scared of givin' mutual respect, all that you hate
It reflect all the godlike, you forget how to lovе somebody
I hate evеrybody, I hate everyone
Let's talk about A.I., robot got more heart than I
Robot got future, I don't
Robot could sleep, but I don't power down
I'm wide open, I'm awake, I'm on autopilot
I'm out of my mind and I'm wide open

[Pre-Chorus: SZA]
Can you distract me from all the disaster?
Can you touch on me and not call me after?
Can you hate on me and mask it with laughter?
Can you lead me to the ark? What's the password?

[Chorus: SZA]
I need humanity
You're like humanity, drowning in vanity
Craving humanity
You're like humanity, I need humanity
I need–

You said all of my friends are on my payroll
You're not wrong, you're an asshole
Screaming at you in the Ludlow
I was yours for free
I don't get existential
I just think about myself and look where that got me
Standin' on my own in an airport bar or hotel lobby
Waiting to feel clean
That's so fucking boring

[Pre-Chorus: SZA]
Can you distract me from all the disaster?
Can you touch on me and not call me after?
Can you hate on me and mask it with laughter?
Can you lead me to the ark? What's the password?

[Chorus: SZA]
I need humanity
You're like humanity, drowning in vanity
Craving humanity
You're like humanity, I need humanity
I need–

[Outro: Sadhguru & SZA]
Those who have forsaken their humanity
They like to patch their life with morality
I think I might be tryna patch my life with morality
I'm curious, I'm curious

“Ghost in the Machine” was revealed on December 5, 2022 via Twitter when SZA posted the album tracklist revealing Phoebe Bridgers feature. The following day SZA went to Twitter and Instagram to post social media influencer Quenlin Blackwell’s reaction to Phoebe Bridgers appearing on SOS. The song explores how SZA’s growing contempt of the music industry “machine” she finds herself in. Frustrated, she is looking for her partner to offer her an escape from her situation, even if temporary. “That record is insane. She just sent me a DM and it all happened so fast. I’m not really used to that. Personally, I sit on stuff for so long, it takes me years to make albums, so I like being involved and seeing someone else’s world from a different angle. She’s so effective and cool, and a great hang.“ – Phoebe Bridgers via NME “Ghost in the Machine” debuted at #40 on the Billboard Hot 100 during the chart week ending of December 24, 2022.
