[Verse 1]
Surveillance audio recorder in a dried-up creek
And we’re headed to the temporary shelter at the roller rink
Every woman and child and man in the canyon land
In a trance and wandering around in the canyon land

[Verse 2]
Airplane station is a pretty great place to hide
Live old-time music and it’s warm inside
Every woman and child and man in the canyon land
In a trance and wandering around in the canyon land

[Verse 3]
Antique photos of celebrities
Samsung black-and-white fade-away qualities
Every woman and child and man in the canyon land
In a trance and wandering about in the canyon land

[Verse 4]
Surveillance video recorder hidden in a tree
You and I are on the lawn and it’s focusing in on me
Every woman and child and man
In a trance and wandering around in the canyon land

[Chorus]
Everything about us is a lost machine
Everything about us is a lost machine
Everything about we is a forgotten dream
Everything about us is a lost machine

[Chorus]
Everything about us is a lost machine
Everything about us is a lost machine
Everything about we is a forgotten dream
Everything about us is a lost machine

[Chorus]
Everything about us is a lost machine
Everything about us is a lost machine
Everything about we is a final dream
Everything about us is a lost machine

    General CommentI've given up trying to decode any meaning from Grandaddy songs and simply enjoy them for what they are...

    That said, this is by far one of my favorite tracks from the new album... especially starting around the 3m mark as it gets that classic Grandaddy swelling grandeur we've all come to know and love :)
