God From the Machine

Album: Master Of My Make-Believe (2012)
  • You can make it alone if you try
    Till the beat come home, I know you sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    Will never see you fall till you'll make it out

    When are you with them let it go
    You'll either gonna rock the boat
    Or have what they're handing out
    Now you're somewhere removed and think you got it when you're broke
    Or are you passionate
    Something that you wrote
    It's gonna make a good lifeboat
    Asylum for the torn
    Crumbling below
    Said if not now, you'll never know
    So while we're waiting

    You can make it alone if you try
    Till the beat come home, I know you'll sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    They'll never see your fire till you make it out. (x2)

    Is what you know but you can tell us so
    Just what it just let it go, for fear they'll turn it down
    You can see through the smoke and then you know that's something wrong
    You're holding on for now
    Aiming for the mark, how is it that your score's not high
    Now flashlights in the dark
    Even with the heart, you know you're better from the start
    Don't let it weight you down

    You can make it alone if you try
    Till it be come on, I know you sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    Will never see you fall till you'll make it out [x2]

    Oh now you leave them alone, you're on your own

    You can make it alone if you try
    Till it be come on, I know you sing it
    You can make it alone if you try
    Will never see you fall till you'll make it out [x2]Writer/s: GREG KURSTIN, GREGORY KURSTIN, RICARDO JOHNSON, SANTI WHITE
