stormy and windy night
remind me of you tonight
wild and fragile
you know the city where i come from
(the city where i come from)
the secrets i'm never telling anyone

machinery, don't fail me
i'm fixing these things
as we're falling apart

shes drawing x and o's
into her pantyhose
you know the city where i come from
(the city where i come from)
the secrets im never telling anyone

machinery, don't fail me
i'm fixing these things
as we're falling apart

we were walking to the corner store
when she'd cry and start to hide
we were talking about the dinosaurs
and how they died, and how they died

machinery, don't fail me
i'm fixing these things
as we're falling apart

machinery, don't fail me
i'm fixing these things
as we're falling apart

    General CommentIm not sure but every time i hear this song i hear machinery dont die on me! maybe im just insane xD
    Anyways i think this songs about som sort of relationship and how hes struggling to keep it up. If you watch the video hes spinning a machine and the faster he spins the faster the gears are but as he slows down the things around him start failing and falling until he speeds up again. I think it could have to do with how he is strugggling to keep the relationship from falling apart!
