Jamie T - The Man's Machine Lyrics




Better the devil you know
Confess, I guess I was the lesser of the two evils
Convalesce about the stress the test caused
Had me up and on the board
Now I'm chairman of the board
I'm coming back for sequels

Do you ever really think you've won? Now you're feeble
Nothing on this far-gone son, all these people
They're laughing at the shit I've done
I've sailed the seven seas to catch a breeze
And took it back home in a trunk

Met a matador who said it's my woman is more
Terrifying than any red bull that he saw
Set a sail, set a rail, met them kings and queens
There's so many trust, just the amphetamines

Well, her dream would've been that the boy's got clean
That her father never got his heart
Caught up in the man's machine
Well, it seems even if I got away
There's always a part of me willing to stay

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we've got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Underground traveling overcast weather

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we've got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Maybe one day things'll get better

Check, check, check, check
One, two, three, kick

I met Gods and monsters, women from Wisconsin
Swimming in linen with another that's not their partner
Chicago be selfish drum, on my journey I met Ernie
So he spoke like Al Capone got drunk

I'm a lover, I'm a brother, my son
I'm a traitor and I'm on the run, watch 'em come
As she said while she driving in her car
Getting drunker than the bar
She's been smacking hard shoulders since before she's legal

I'm a dragnet right on through the city of sin
It's the hard done bastards taking it in
Well, I see what I say, save it on the way
They can't sit bawling but they're bawling away

Well, she cries all her tears but with all of her fears
Well, she run away, she had a place
Now all they ever see is the fears
Take it as she's seen it, get away
Well, there's always a part of us willing to stay

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we've got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Underground traveling overcast weather

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we've got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Maybe one day things'll get better

So run, run Boyo, chase it to the border, border
Should have also told her I was cannon fodder
Would've if I could've screamed to her, shout and holler
Then I could've saved the girl from the man's machine

Run Boyo, chase it to the border, border
Should have also told her I was cannon fodder
Would've if I could've screamed to her, shout and holler
Then I could've saved the girl from the man's machine

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we've got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Underground traveling overcast weather

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we've got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Maybe one day things'll get better

  29. Toby Allard

    Probably my favourite Jamie T song. Shame its not the original, but does anyone know who narrates the begining? Also amazing he's doing his comeback tour, just needs more publicity!

    Alex M

    There's a Scottish punk band called the angelic upstarts. On one of their live albums (not sure which one, but the right one is for example on spotify) there's a song that has the lead singers little anecdote about the policeman shiz at the beginning. Again I forgot the song name but it shouldn't exactly be difficult to find, there aren't many songs.

    James Pearcey

    It's Joe Strummer from the Clash

    Da Flow

    +James Pearcey Definitely not

    conawillvlog

    +Tz Hz You're Nicked - Angelic Upstarts (Live) from Greatest Hits live

  30. Toby Allard

    Probably my favourite Jamie T song. Shame its not the original, but does anyone know who narrates the begining? Also amazing he's doing his comeback tour, just needs more publicity!

  49. Carl Bleakley

    In April 2012 the NME reported that Jamie T's record label informed them that he was "in the studio working on new material" when questioned. Further evidence of Jamie T's forthcoming return came when Luis from Jamie's band The Pacemakers mentioned Jamie T's forthcoming 3rd album on the Jamie T fan forum

  90. flash gordon

    what is it with all the legend talk anyway who really cares if he's famous or not? It wouldn't change a thing to me jamie t is a fucking legend end of.

  91. Deepak Dhillon

    I dont think he should be more famous either, maybe he would change his songs and his personality, hes loyal to his fans and thats why i like him, but he really does deserve some awards and recognition, especially for this album.

  92. J Newton

    This video is so cool.
