TEKSTY

    MACHINE AND SOUL

    

    Machine And Soul

She likes film
Pictures too
A friend of mine
Something new 

She like girls
Lives my dreams
Eats my face
She says 'Time to make me scream' 

No crying
She don't like tears
My one chance
Is corruption 

She likes pain
'E' please, Bob
Some heroes
But she don't like God 

She likes rock
MTV
Sex machines
She says 'Time to make me bleed' 

No romance
No surprise
My one chance
Is perversion 

So this is
My secret
And this is
A new way to hide 

So this is
My nightmare
And you're my
Solution 

No memories
Nostalgia
My one chance
Is slow motion 

So this is
The big lie
So this is
My reason to leave 

So this is
My future
And you're my
Corruption 

She likes speed
Low fast cars
Love and hate
Rock and roll stars 

She likes cream
Long goodbyes
Someone to watch
She says 'Time to make me cry' 

I'm nervous
She scares me
My one chance
Is emotion 

So this is
Religion
So this is
Something to believe 

So this is
God's disease
So this is
A new kind of cure 

So this is
A new world
And you're my
Machine and soul

 

    Generator

We generate heat
We generate emotion
We generate a feeling
That is better left here
Than a memory on a wall 

I'd rather cry than forgive you 

We generate pain
We generate suspicion
We generate a rumour that's sick
But a rumour that is probably true 

I'd rather die than forget you 

I won't let my heart slip away from me
I'm talking sex motion
I'm talking 'bout fashion
I'm talking 'bout skin games
I'm talking 'bout secrets 

And I won't let my heart run away with me
I'm talking temptation
I'm talking 'bout memories
I'm talking 'bout feelings
I'm talking 'bout emotion 

We generate lies
We generate pictures
We generate a video film
That I couldn't let my best friend see 

I'd rather lose than forgive you 

We generate shame
We generate secrets
We generate a reason for living
And we generate a reason for not 

I'd rather hurt than forget you 

I can't believe that I'm here
I can't believe what I've seen
I can't believe what I'm doing to you

 

    The Skin Game

Your welcome to fame
Your welcome to try
I've been on TV, sold my face to you 

Your welcome to love
Your welcome to me
I burned my dream, sold my heart, nobody knew 

Listen children
I've seen my future
Call it the dead line for now
I've heard secrets
I've heard excuses
I've heard a voice in the dark 

You're waiting for me
You've made a mistake
I'll give you nothing but lies, or nothing at all 

I'm playing a game
I'm playing with you
I call it shameful, 'The skin game', don't you?
You're playing it cold
(Ripping it up)
You're playing for time
(I don't like pictures)
You're breaking my rules and I won't let you go 

I'm looking for you
(Welcome to me)
Somebody screamed
(It's no use talking)
I've connections with God, what do you need? 

Lost in junk sick
No sleep no motion
She said 'I've nothing to lose'
Love sick? Skin game
Welcome to romance
She's like the heart of the world 

I'm still breathing
Welcome to my house
I'd steal from God wouldn't you?
One more question
Am I in danger?
Rumours, and I've got the fear 

Looking for you
Is it any wonder?
Tearing it up
I'm living on empty

 

    Poison

Help me
I'm in disgrace
Witness slow death
all over my face 

Help me
Pick up my heart
Tell my friends
Wherever they are 

Listen
They stole my dream
New corruption
Know what I mean? 

Listen
Do you think I don't know
I've got a face like metal
And a radio 

Listen up
Listen up good
New man's fame
Is new man's poison 

Stand up
Stand up and fight
Stand up I won't quit so
Stand up and play 

Stand up
Stand up and scream
Stand up I won't run so
Stand up and lose 

Listen up
Listen up good
Innocence
Is new corruption 

Memories?
I don't need
A dead museum
And a grudge to feed 

Memories
Re-write shame
Re-arrange the feelings
To ease your pain 

Big lie
So this is the word
A needle in my back
And my voice unheard 

Big lie
So this is the news
Radio lost
And I've nothing to lose 

Nu voice
Said this is insane
I'm trying to learn the rhythm
Of the rule-change game 

Nu voice
I'm a clock with no hands
Someone said forgive them
I don't know if I can 

Tell me
What did I do?
You'd think I'd sold perversion
To the son of God (who?) 

Tell me
What did I say?
I don't believe that honesty
Pays 

Listen up
Listen up good
New man's fame
Is new man's poison 

Listen up
Listen up good
Innocence
Is new corruption

 

    I Wonder

And sometimes
When I'm lonely
I think of you
And I wonder 

And sometimes
When someone
Calls your name
I wonder 

You changed my life
And you could've changed my world
And I
Miss your voice and
I miss your heartbeat
I miss your face and
I miss you 

And sometimes
When I'm sleeping
I dream of you
And I wonder 

And sometimes
When I forget
I call for you
And I wonder 

You said, 'Goodbye'
You said, 'It's over'
You said, 'I'm tired
And I can't wait
All my life
I won't cry anymore' 

And sometimes when
I wonder
I cry for you
And I miss you 

And sometimes I
Remember
How to feel again
And I miss you

 

    Emotion

Look up
Look down
I've seen it all before
I need emotion 

Look left
Look right
I've tried it all before
I need emotion 

Say nothing
It's over
I sold my soul
Forever 

She's tempting
Sex tension
It could be the wrong move 

One question
One answer
I don't need
Exposure 

I don't know
The slogan
New fashion kills me 

Fashion
Tear it up
It don't mean a thing so
Fashion
Tear it up good 

Touch me
Picture this
It don't mean a thing so
Touch me
Life is cruel 

How did this ever get serious 

One night
One touch
I've used them all before
I need emotion 

One lie
Too much
I've heard it all before
I need emotion 

I'll show you
Religion
Some people
Disgust me 

Listen to
Opinion
I'm in a glasshouse 

'I've been sick'
She whispers
Abandon
Nostalgia 

Remember
My picture
I only work here 

I need emotion

 

    Cry

I don't cry
Or forget
I'll cut my picture on your heart
No names
You've got one more game to lose 

I was young
I was clean
But now my soul eats me alive
I was kind
Now I'm your first big mistake 

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry? 

She sold pain
She sold mine
She sold my secrets to the man
She sold lies
And so now I'll break 'The Word' 

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry? 

Tear up my picture
Tear up my face
You'll tear up your feelings but the memory's quite safe
Look back in anger
Look back and cry
Look up my number if you want to know why, but 

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry? 

Same need
Same cure
I'll whisper words to ease your shame
Play time
I've got one more trick for you 

I don't pray
Wrong man
I don't look for love that I don't need
Wrong place
You've got one more chance to leave

     

    U Got The Look

You walked in
I woke up
I've never seen a pretty girl
Look so tough baby
U got that look
Colour me peach and black
Colour me takin' aback
Crucial
I think I wancha 

U got the look
U got the hook
U sho' nuff do be cookin' in my book
You're face is jammin'
your body's heck a slammin'
If love is good
Let's get to rammin'
U got the look 

U got the look
It musta took
A whole hour just to make up your face baby
Party time, ugly lights, everybody's inspected
But you are a natural beauty unaffected
Did I say an hour?
My face is red
I stand corrected

     

    Love Isolation

These are words
Just for you
Only words
But it's all I can do 

Reasons fade
As reasons can do
All I want
Is to talk with you 

You cried with me
Laughed at me
Talked to me
Sheltered me
(You) fought by me
Lied for me
You lived for me 

(So) call me
And I'll run to you
Ask me
And I'd die for you 

You were there
You were always there
Like a friend
Like a lifelong friend
And I love you 

I broke your heart
And you stole mine
memorys lie
But they're all I can find 

Call my name
Sing my song
Call for me
I've been wating so long 

(Just) call me
And I'll run to you
Ask me
And i'd die for you 

You were there
You were always there
Like a friend
Like a lifelong friend
And I miss you
