We're just machines rusting to breathe
Hopeless, helpless, deconstructing ourselves
Wanting to be wanted, willing to waste our lives
Disillusioned, I may never find a sense of home

Take me anywhere, wherever you're going
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here
Take me anywhere, wherever you're going
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here, here, here

Robots are rising while the rest of us keep writhing
We're just inferior after all
With the lights out, inspiration, we're a tired nation
Faulty, I don't want a sense of home

Take me anywhere, wherever you're going
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here
Take me anywhere, wherever you're going
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here, here, here


Take me anywhere, wherever you're going
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here
Take me anywhere, wherever you're going
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here

Take me anywhere, take me anywhere
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here
Take me anywhere, take me anywhere
Take me anywhere, 'cause nobody wants me here, here, here

    General CommentWith all the images of rust and technology, it would seem to express the dismal realities of the human condition. The song seems to mourn for the wasted potential in all of us (machines rusting to breathe/Hopeless, helpless, deconstructing ourselves). When he talks about never finding a home, I think he means that we're never satisfied with ourselves. Instead of taking our inferiority in stride, we have this tendency to crumble (we're a tired nation). We want to be taken anywhere, because we have no home in ourselves (no sense of acceptance). The "nobody wants me here" seems to refer to ourselves more than anything--we don't want to be ourselves. We'd rather be somewhere else, away from our realities, and pretend to be anything. Disillusioned is a good word for the overall mood of the song.

    I dig it.

    General CommentNobody analyzes songs anymore, come on guys this is a great song.

    Anyways, this song is almost a third person/first person song about feeling unsuperior, and as much as you try it becomes shadowed by the world around, and in this it makes the person that this song is about feel unwanted. The person in the song is wondering if they could or ever be wanted, it's a pretty pessimistic song, but if you know Stephen, I bet this is about all the unfortunate souls that he helps in the impoverished countries in Faceless international
