We think it’s under our control
At least that’s what we’ve all been told

Under the surface nothing’s ever what it seems
Faster than light, they’re spinning their wheels
Destroys our lives, kills our dreams
As the end is closing in

We can’t control it, no way to hold it
It’s spinning round and round
Fires are burning, madness is turning
The whole world’s upside down
One step forward, ten steps back
Is this what we need?
We gotta turn the power off
Gotta stop the machine

With magic tricks and fantasies
They feed our minds with make believe

If we deny the truth, if we refuse to see
All will be lost and nobody wins
Our last breath of hope, gone with the wind
And the end is closing in

(x3) We can’t control it, no way to hold it
It’s spinning round and round
Fires are burning, madness is turning
The whole world’s upside down
One step forward, ten steps back
Is this what we need?
We gotta turn the power off
Gotta stop the machine
