The Life Machine
Tubeway
Army

 

Me. Ive just died
But some machine keeps on humming
Im just an extra piece
Of dead meat to keep running
Why wont you let me die in piece
Why wont you let me die with some kind of honour
Why wont you let me die at all
I know
You`ve got your principles

My body lies immobile
I left it days ago
And me I watch from somewhere
As the loved ones come and go
I see them glancing at the switch
I hear them whispering
'Maybe it's better that way'
I see the love turn into feelings
I know
Aren't quite the same

I see the men of learning
Pacing to and fro
But how can I expect
The sane to ever know
I'd rather die than have no mind
I know my brain is gone
'Damage beyond repair'
I see an empty shell below me
I know
Ive had my time
