A glaring neon glow illuminates this street
Breathe in these human vapors, sweat and heavy heat
Hi-tech cathedrals rise and fall in great ravines
Colossal steeples to the gods in the machines

Broken body built anew
Spirit lingers, torn in two
Metal fingers grip my heart so cold

Fossil fuels to slavery
Political duplicity
Every great commodity's been sold

Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin
Search my electric soul for the hidden man within


Your secret science conquers nature's cruel laws
But inside your wires lie a million mortal flaws
Electric sleep I dream inside my honeycomb
I stay alive inside my hive of skin and chrome

Broken body built anew
Spirit lingers, torn in two
Metal fingers grip my heart so cold

Fossil fuels to slavery
Political duplicity
Every great commodity's been sold

Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin
Search my electric soul for the hidden man within

Slave to the new black gold, there's a heartbeat under my skin
(Broken body built anew)
Search my electric soul for the hidden man within
Spirit lingers torn in two...)
