  • I can't live when it lives
    It won't live if I die
    Machine has no heart to give
    Heart it takes could be mine

    Come on
    Come down
    Come out from where you hide

    Follows me down the river
    Shadows me through the sky
    A sideways glance in the mirror
    Stalemate machine in a tie

    Come on
    Come down
    Come out from where you hide
    Get up
    Get off
    Get on with your life

    Forever means all is not seen
    Never means forever brings everything

    I fashion will and desire
    Always I and I survive
    Mercurial mind the fire
    Fervorous direction and drive

    Come on
    Come down
    Come out from where you hide
    Get up
    Get off
    Get on with your life

    Forever means all is not seen
    Never means forever brings everything

    Get up
    Get off
    Get on with your life

    Now I see myself clearer
    Why time I visualize
    I spy device in the mirror
    Checkmate watch machine die Writer/s: KIM A. THAYIL
