“Machines”

A broken down machine
was our friendship
but the motors gone
almost dry
grind the gears
put it in drive
hope the motor
doesn’t die

So mechanical
almost automatic
our transactions
are so erratic
communication
full of static
our friendship is
so tragic

We are machines
Yes we are friends
One friend receives
While the other one-sends
We are machines
Yes we are friends
One Friend receives
While the other one sends

Kept in action
there’s no emotion
this machine makes
quite a commotion
worn out parts
with no devotion
a wonder it’s still
in motion

We are machines
Yes we are friends
One friend receives
While the other one-sends
We are machines
Yes we are friends
One Friend receives
While the other one sends

    General CommentThe song is about a relationship that I had that was broken beyond repair... It is hard when you are left giving and the other one is just taking... The relationship became mechanical and therefor void of emotion.... I sat down penned the lyrics to paper in one shot and then wrote the music and sequenced this song with in a matter of hours... It is one of those magical things that are driven by emotion without thought... I plan to rerecord this song as Elastic Souls.... -Ricky X-
