My Dying Machine 7"

 

No more questions
No more answers
All that's left is the fear

No more questions
No more answers
All that's left is the fear

This dying machine
I can hear me scream
I've nowhere to run
I've nowhere to hide

I can feel they're here
I can feel the cold
I can't fight for long
This machine runs down

If I had a picture
I could say it's all for you

If I had a picture
I could say it's all for you

Why give orders
Why make speeches
Give me a reason to stay

Why give orders
Why make speeches
Give me a reason to stay

This shape comes apart
Everything breaks down
And me I'm trapped inside
And here inside it ends

There's nothing I can do
There's nothing I can do now
If I had a picture
I could say it's all for you
I can only wonder
I can only wonder why
