Machine

Album: Speak Your Mind (2018)
  • I feel an ache in my body
    But if only I'd have no bones
    I know the air isn't breathable
    And it's no good for my lungs

    I feel an anger inside of me
    Burns like the sun in my chest
    I got no patience or self-control
    God knows I'm trying my best

    If I was a machine
    I'd never have to worry
    I know that I could always press delete

    If I was a machine
    I wouldn't be affected
    By violence on the television screen

    Wouldn't have a heart
    So you couldn't break it
    No such thing as time
    So you couldn't waste it

    That would be the dream
    The world could never bother me

    If I was a ma' if I was a machine
    If I was a machine
    If I was a ma' (if I was ma')

    I don't do well under pressure
    But if I was made out of steel
    I would be so damn invincible
    Nothing could undo my will

    I wouldn't make bad decisions
    No promises or regret
    And everything that makes me miserable
    Is a consequence of my flesh

    If I was a machine
    I'd never have to worry
    I know that I could always press delete

    If I was a machine
    I wouldn't be affected
    By violence on the television screen

    Wouldn't have a heart
    So you couldn't break it
    No such thing as time
    So you couldn't waste it

    That would be the dream
    The world could never bother me

    If I was a ma' if I was a machine
    If I was a machine
    If I was a ma' (if I was ma')

    Drunk and high every night
    Numb the pain oh
    Flush it all down the drain
    If I could find a way out of this hole
    I could do anything

    Every night a different guy
    Numb the pain oh
    Flush it all down the drain
    If I could find a way out of this hole
    I could do anything

    If I was a machine
    I'd never have to worry
    I know that I could always press delete

    If I was a machine
    I wouldn't be affected
    By violence on the television screen

    Wouldn't have a heart
    So you couldn't break it
    No such thing as time
    So you couldn't waste it

    That would be the dream
    The world could never bother me

    If I was a ma' if I was a machine
    If I was a machine
    If I was a ma' (if I was ma') Writer/s: Ilsey Juber, Teddy Geiger, Anne-Marie Nicholson
