lyrics

Sad Machine

Hey little sad machine. Staring back at me with one eye closed.
Feeling disconnected. A little puzzled thing.
You little sad machine. Don’t call him blinkered he’s focused.
Feeling just like a puppet left holding its own strings

It’s like he’s standing on an escalator just behind his life.
Just too late, too late, too late to change the mistakes

When you dissect a rainbow all you’re left with is rain.
Can’t put it back together and if you could it wouldn’t be the same
He’s living life from a distance. His cards so close to his chest
He’s only using 10 percent of his brain – He can’t remember where he left the rest.

It’s like he’s standing on an escalator just behind his life.
Just too late, too late, too late to change the mistakes
It’s like he stepped into an elevator just before the fire
Too late too late too late to make an escape
