TINA ARENA lyrics - Strong As Steel

The Machine's Breaking Down

Original and similar lyrics
Proven patterns breaking down All controls gone underground We should have never come to this Yet here we stand Devoid of optimists The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down We set the wheels in motion Now we're caught in the commotion The machine's breaking down Lebanon, Iraq, Iran Ethiopia and Afghanistan Religion and politics, plunder and rape While the weak cow down And pray for escape The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down We set the wheels in motion Now we're caught in the commotion The machine's breaking down Addicts bent on self-destruction A billion dollars for the masters of seduction Despair and hope go hand in hand Charting the inevitable course of man Bloody images bounce off the wall As the satellite pictures tell it all While common goals and common ground Disappear as the world breaks down The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down We set the wheels in motion Now we're caught in the commotion The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down The machine's breaking down [Repeat to fade]

Lazy Projector

ANDREW BIRD "Break It Yourself"
If memory serves us, then who owns the master How do we know who's projecting this reel And is it like gruel or like quick drying plaster Tell me how long til the paint starts to peel Is it like Pyramus or Apollo or an archer we don't know Though history repeats itself, and time's a crooked bow Come on tell us something we don't know Now who's the best boy and the casting director And the editor splicing your face from the scene It's all in the hands of a lazy projector That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine They say all good things must come to an end Everyday the night must fall How it all came to this, I simply can't recall Too many cooks in the kitchen How the mighty must fall But I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all I can't see the sense in us breaking up at all Breaking up at all And it's all in the hands of a lazy projector That forgetting, embellishing, lying machine

Wheels In Motion

JIMMY BARNES "Heat"
16 years guaranteed That you'd get what you want or get what you need When you realise you ain't gonna get it move on Hit, split n quit it Said you were waiting for the right time to come Hit the top of the hill - start to run Set the wheels in motion Start 'em up, start 'em up (I'm saying) right here now, set the wheels in motion And sixteen years never cured your fears When you opened your eyes couldn't see through the tears Out on the edge now you must decide to hump off Flip, flop or fly Time to get outta here, yes it is Time we were changin', shiftin' gears Set the wheels in motion, start 'em up, start 'em up When it's time to go, set the wheels in motion Set the wheels in motion, start 'em up, start 'em up Right here now, set the wheels in motion Aimed at the middle, primed up like a loaded gun Ain't nothin' gonna stop you from explodin' You've been wastin' your time, bein' led by the blind Yeah, the weight of the world drags you down Let you bridges be burned, with the lessons you've learned You should be walkin' on water by now

Under The Radar

THE JUNIOR VARSITY "Cinematographic"
Well I thought we were smart We got caught again Isn't it beautiful today Somebody has to feel the same It's all wrong, it's my fault It's all wrong again Swift judgement's come And they already put a rope around my neck Their power makes a pretty badge of pride But they wear a good disguise I'd like to think we're free to speak How could you know you're reading minds You're reading minds Swinging away We were only trying to be under the radar Swinging away We are the motion We are the source of energy Well I thought we were smart We got caught again Wasn't it beautiful today I know you'll never feel the same It's all wrong, it's all wrong It's all wrong again And now it all comes back to you You've got find a new meaning A higher view Their power makes a pretty badge of pride But they wear a good disguise I'd like to think we're free to speak How could you know you're reading minds You're reading minds Swinging away We were only trying to be under the radar Swinging away We are the motion We are the source of energy Swinging away We were only trying to be under the radar Swinging away We are the motion We are the source of energy And the sun will shine on us I got sold to the owner of the highest bid I got laughed at, mocked, and called a kid I got caught in a trap, oh you know I did You got caught in a trap again We got caught There's not any way to go There's not any way to go There's not any way to go Swinging away We were only trying to be under the radar Swinging away We are the motion We are the source of energy Swinging away We were only trying to be under the radar Swinging away We are the motion We are the source of energy Energy, energy

Part Of The Machine

JETHRO TULL "Crest Of A Knave"
Everybody's jumping on the circus train. Some jump high, some jump off again. And the razzmatazz is rolling, women folk unveiled. All truths to light, all crosses nailed. Aiming high where the eagle circles, where he keeps his tail feathers clean. And wonders "Am I still a free bird? Or just a part of the machine". They hitch their covered wagons and they roll out west. Politics in the pockets of their Sunday best. Shaking hands, kissing babies, for all that they're worth. they promise you gold, promise heaven on earth. Still, that old bald eagle circles, it's not the first time that he's seen his reflection in the eyes of innocence. He's become just another part of the machine, part of the machine. I wish I had an eagle like you to look up to. He could be my wings to fly in a big bird sky up above the whole machine. Part of the machine. Part of the machine. Smart guys aren't running they're home and dry. Up in the mountains where the eagle flies. They wouldn't take that job offered on a plate. They got to fly with the eagle, and he won't wait. Looking down on the smoke and the factories till the truth creeps up unseen. They see themselves in the faces of their children and realize they too are part of the machine. Part of the machine. I wish I had an eagle like you to wake up to. He could be my wings to fly in a big bird sky, hey let's be part of the machine. Part of the machine. Part of the machine. Part of the machine. Part of the machine. Part of your machine. Part of your machine. Part of your machine. Part of your machine.

Entombment Of A Machine

JOB FOR A COWBOY "Doom"
It bleeds! It breathes! What stands before us, is not a machine It breathes, it will bleed and it will dream! [Scream] Its body is covered in hundreds of wires. and a mouth that attempts to speak, it attempts to lie Only murmurs, collapse from its jaws. And a world, a world without, A world without you. but I rise. the dead will pride it breathes, beyond this life, so sleep, sleep among us, hesitate no more En....tomb-men....of-a-ma...chine (entombment of a machine) We kneel and we plead for no mourning ahead of us, With only delayed movements, from its figure, we all begin to strain. Entombment of a machine Entombment of a machine What stands before us is not a machine What stands before us is not a machine My legs weaken at the site of this damaged program, This program kept you breathing, it kept you alive. These circuits diffused once more. Its body is covered in hundreds of wires. Only murmurs collapse from its Scream Entombment of a Machine But I saw It Die. But I saw it die But I Saw It Dead. But I saw It Die. I saw it die I Watched it DIE!
