Elephants of Scotland – A Different Machine Lyrics

Listen to the gear as it hums the tune
Just a song I heard with words that I never knew

Load up all the lines they tell me I have to run
Execute and breathe once or twice, I’ve begun
I can make it all a part of me

Pray to no god, just commandments on a screen
Once, I was a man but NOW
I’m just a different machine

Standing in the queue with the rank and the file
Upgrade my arms so I can reach the sky

Take me apart, open up the case
Synchronize my heart so it keeps up the pace
Will I always dream but never fly?

I fall into line hoping to be seen
Once, I was a man but now
I’m just a different machine

Once, I was a man. Once, I was a child.
Once, I knew what I was made of
And once I gave that all away for something better
Now I know what I’m a slave of

Turn myself off and merge into the scene
Once, I was a man but NOW
I’m just a different machine
I’m just a different machine
I’m just a different machine

Once, I was a man. Once, I was a child.
Once I believed all I had seen
And once I gave it all away for something better
Now I’m just one more machine
