"Outside the Machine" as written by Steven John Wilson and Timothy John Bownass....
I'm tired, I'm cold.
Untied and feeling old.

You're all lit up like catherine wheels.
You're all lit up, but you're not real.

I don't need you,
Not like I used to do.
I don't need you,
Not like I did.

Hate confusion, need advice.
Love illusion, need advice.

What does it mean to be a part of you?
How does it feel inside the heart of you?

I don't need you,
Not like I used to do.
I don't need you,
Not like I did.

Outside the machine,
Left alone with my dreams.
Outside the machine,
All lit up, somebody screams.

What does it mean to be a part of you?
Tried to get inside the very heart of you.

    General CommentThe most beautiful song to ever reach my ears.
    It's about getting old, finding yourself outside of the machine that used to be your life. No longer needing what you used to because you've grown outside of it, where you can see the truth behind the illusions.
