Through streets the people quiver
One's bent over and I hear through a whisper
"Why'd they have to be so bitter?
They need to consider, really need to consider
How this makes them all feel."

I feel so fragile and I feel so drained
I can't see how they do it but I won't surrender
By this time next summer, the sky will brighten
And I won't be steeping in these mortal fears

Kill me, what's one more day to make things more real?
Bring me, closer to you so I can finally feel

Through the fog, through the aggravation
I see you standing near, telling me not to fear
"Look around, see the answer.
It's not hidden in numbers, not found in spinning wheels
Nor can be solved by another."

But how could I slip and watch them feast on unhappy?
Everyone needs some joy, for them I'd sacrifice my own
How could I sleep at night knowing
That I'm the only one who can touch the wind?

Kill me, what's one more day to make things more real?
Bring me, closer to you so I can finally feel

(And you) I've been so blind and callous
(You) I've learned such ignorance
(And you) Tried so hard to foce this device, forgot all along about you
(You) Forogt what it all really means
Forgotten how you make me feel
What is this worth anyway?

You always have been, and always will be my Happiness Machine
From now and forever more
