 Struggling with Machman? Become a better singer in 30 days with these videos!

I saw him turn on
Like a machine in the park
Saying 'please come with me'
But you've been there before

I saw him whirr away
Into the night
Like a nightmare on wheels
Saying 'never again'

I'd give it all up for you
I'd even be a number just for you
The strangest living boy
You could ever wish to see

'that's me'
Yellowed newspapers
Tell the story of someone
'do you know this man? '

Tomorrow the cure
Only police ever
See night time for real
Turn on the light
And cry 'no more, no more'

I was standing outside your door
Waiting for the grey men to go
When my mind turned on me
With a vengeance I had never known

My own
Everyone heard
The voice on the radio
Saying 'why move around

And waste my time'
There are no
Independents anymore
The tape is a circle
But who really cares

I saw you behind the wall
I even heard you laugh at me
You disgust me tonight
With your answer to something new
That's you
