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 Comment@kazikame: I don't think you're insane; I hear "don't die on me" as well. :P

    Also, in response to the second part of your comment, I think that sounds quite reasonable. I just watched the video on youtube and, interestingly enough, if you look closely at his mouth at about 1:55 and 2:57, it seems he pretty clearly mouths the words "as *we're* falling apart" instead of "as *they're* falling apart. Perhaps a little easter egg in the video to convey the message a bit more clearly? :o Who knows...

    Oddly enough, he also still seems to mouth "don't fail on me" at 1:48 and 2:50, which is different from what I hear *and* what the lyrics say (he adds the "on"). XD
