Big Machine

Album: Gutterflower (2002)
Charted: 64
  • Ecstasy is all you need
    Living in the big machine now
    Oh, you're so vain
    Now your world is way too fast
    Nothing's real and nothing lasts
    And I'm aware
    I'm in love but you don't care
    Turn your anger into lust
    I'm still here, but you don't trust at all
    And I'll be waiting
    Love and sex and loneliness
    Take what's yours and leave the rest
    So I'll survive
    God, it's good to be alive
    And I'm torn in pieces
    I'm lying there waiting for
    My heart is reeling
    I'm blind and waiting for you
    Still in love with all your sins
    Where you stop and I begin
    And I'll, I'll be waitin'
    Livin' like a house on fire
    What you fear is your desire
    It's hard to deal
    I still love the way you feel
    Now this angry little girl
    Drowning in this petty world
    And I'm who you run to
    Swallow all your bitter pills
    That's what makes you beautiful
    You're all or naught
    I don't need what you ain't got
    And I'm torn in pieces
    I'm lying there waiting for
    My heart is reeling
    I'm blind and waiting for you
    I'm blind and waiting for you
    I'm blind and waiting for you
    And I can't believe it's coming true
    God, it's good to be alive
    I'm still here and waitin' for you
    And I can't believe it's coming true
    I'm blind and waiting for you
