I'm just a sleep walking robot that's outta gear
The character is similar to a robot because he has no real emotion or desires. He feels like he’s going through the motions, just like a robot would be programmed to do. His depression might be the cause of this.
This is a double entendre;
- In relation to the robot he mentioned, he’s out of gear. This means that he’s not functioning correctly, thanks to his depression.
- Gear is also slang for clothes, shoes, or accessories. He’s probably going through some hard times financially, which could be part of the cause for his depression.
