"The Machine" as written by and Thomas Delonge....
The ash set in then blew away...
It’s getting lost into the sea.
I grew so close to all the thoughts I had to leave forever.
I left the chill and voice, the screams in kids, and ran for shelter.

You know I wont say sorry.
Do you know I wont say sorry?
The pain has a bad reaction,
A blend of fear and passion.
Do you know what it's like to believe?
It makes me wanna scream.

I see a glow from far away.
A faint reflection on the sea.
I left some words quite far from here to be a sure reminder.
I laid them out in stone in case they need to last forever.

You know I wont say sorry.
Do you know I wont say sorry?
The pain has a bad reaction,
A blend of fear and passion.
Do you know what it's like to believe?
It makes me wanna scream.

Do you know what it's like to believe?
It makes me wanna scream.

    General Commentto my it definetly sounds like box car racer; especially the hard guitar riffs. i like how they used the same lyrics as start the machine, but just different instrumental. favorite song on the album, then the adventure!

    General Commenti agree with always_4eva_now, although great, its not living up to the hype tom gave it.

    but it sounds like a littl bit of the untitled blink album

    i know this is apparent, but if you just kinda think of what it would be like to combine +44 and AVA, it sounds like the untitled album

    but as i said, its apparent
