God From the Machine

Album: Master Of My Make-Believe (2012)
  • You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They'll never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    Well are you with them, if not let it go
    You're either going to rock the boat
    Or have what they're handing out
    Now you're somewhere remote
    They think you got a wire broke
    But what you hashing up?
    Something that you wrote
    Is going to make a good lifeboat
    Asylum for the torn
    A rumbling below
    Said if not now you'll never go
    So while we wait it out

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They'll never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    It's what you know
    But you can't tell a soul
    Just where it is you let go
    For fear they'll turn it sour
    You can see through the smoke
    And though you know that something's broke
    You're holding on for now
    Aiming for the mark
    How is it that your scars light up
    Like flashlights in the dark
    Leading with the heart
    You know your battle from the start
    Don't let it wear you down

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They'll never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    For now you leave them alone
    Ah, they'll see on their own
    Ya ya yo
    Out on your own, out on your own
    Ya ya yo
    And you're going
    Now you know you'll go
    Ya ya yo

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They'll never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They'll never see your fire
    Til' you make it out

    You can make it alone if you try
    Til' the beat come home
    I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They'll never see your fire
    Til' you make it out Writer/s: Gregory Kurstin, Ricardo Johnson, Santi White
