Broken Machine

Album: Broken Machine (2017)
  • songfacts ®
  • Lyrics
  • This is the title track of Nothing But Thieves' second album. Vocalist Conor Mason told The Sun: "That was the silly one, the one we just wanted to have a laugh with and experiment to no end. There's no set structure, just whatever poured out of us. I love it."

    He added: "It sounds like a mind collapsing then rebuilding itself, which I'm glad about of as it is about mental health. There's a message of hope at the end. We're not bleak all the time."
