"Warm Machine" as written by and Rossdale....
I memorize the basics
Making strange faces
Traded slowly for I know
There's a thousand miles to go
Without blinking
I gravitate spacewards
Find a home for the head
From my basement
No darkness ever left

This is the night
This is the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine
Pretty warm

Some days are playful
Making play faces
But we will not let it through
The darkness and the sense
Of being born to loose

This is the life
This is the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine
This is the life
This is the ground
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine

If we never know we can only
Feel
I'll take the help
I'll take a slice
Warm alright, now
Cause I feel alright

I memorize the basics, basics, basics
This is the night
This is the sound
Here comes the warm machine
Such a warm machine
Such a warm machine
Such a warm machine
Machine, machine, machine

    General Commentumm.. those lyrics are wrong in the first part of the song.. it goes:

    I memorize the basics
    Making strange faces
    Tread slowly for I know
    There's a thousand miles to go
    Without blinking.

    General Commentthis song is about how there is no afterlife. it makes the illustration of light and sound and compares it to life and the ground (death). also, in the beginning, when he's talkin about trrends slowly falling (hell) and him gravitating spacewards and finding a home for his head (his view of Heaven) then the song is definately about death.

    General Commento, one more thing, ya know how when you see lightening, theres light and then sound, then nothing else? i think that;s the illustration that is trying to be made with life.

    General Commenti think this song is pretty straightforward underneath the metaphors.

    "warm machine" - human being

    "i memorize the basics" - learning how to live, learning how to be a human

    "making strange faces - 1000 miles to go " - complaining about life because there is so much left to live of it..

    "this is the night, this is the sound" - the night and sound of death

    "gravitate spacewards" - gravity opposes the movement into space.. similarly an ending opposes movement of motion..

    General CommentAlso -

    Lisa-Claire Sanwall from San Francisco: Gavin, you're my favorite rock star because you write really powerful music and have a compel-ling and gorgeous voice! The lyrics of all of your songs read like sublime poetry, and I was wondering if you may have any poetic influences, and what inspired you to write your newest single from The Science of Things, Warm Machine?

    GR: "Warm Machine" is sort of my stream of consciousness song. It's a song about trying to fit in and changing body shape to try to be part of anyone. I like Charles Bukowski because he's edgy. I'm not smart enough to know "proper, real" poets. I love Ginsberg, I love the French poets -- Baudelaire, Rambaud. I love Patti Smith.

    General CommentThis song is really cool, I like it a lot. "Gravitate spacewards.....ever left," this lyric is about trying to make yourself satisfied, even when your life sucks and u have nothing to do but just chill in yur basement, just trying to find happiness. "If we never know, we can only feel," I love this lyric it's so true and deep. Then, "cos I feel alright," and everything cuts out accept the guitar...... just so powerful. OUTSTANDING SONG!
