lyrics

Soon you’ll be standing in a tower that overlooks the world
Looking down upon the sea
Of people scouring to making a living
Killing one another, killing to be free

But what happens to all these machines
When their cogs fill up with insecurities?
We should be more careful
Give them opportunity

Because no one thinks of the machines
No one cares for their wellbeing
Just oil them and make sure they’re moderately clean
No one thinks of the machines

We toss them aside like they’re not one with us
Assisting with everything we do
Like dental care to health care to warfare
And everything that we’ve been though

Soon enough these gears will reverse
Showing their teeth, taking over turf

Because no one thinks of the machines
No one cares for their wellbeing
Just oil them and make sure they’re moderately clean
No one thinks of the machines

Some things are better left where they lie
Please forgive me for parting my soul
Our world is ending but life, son,
Life must continue to grow

Don’t forget to remember to be scared
Or is it don’t forget to be scared to remember
You are all the pieces of my soul
Let these ruins be your riches, treat them like gold


Because you will have to live with the machines
You will have to better what has been
Oil them and make sure they’re moderately clean
You will have to live with the machines

Because you will have to live with the machines
You will have to better what has been
Oil them and make sure they’re moderately clean
You will have to live with the machines
