Nothing But Thieves - Broken Machine Lyrics




I'm just a broken machine
I can't do anything
My wheels have started to jam
My wheels jam, my
I'm just a broken machine
With all the layers of dust
Some things have started to fail
Some things have
Some

I'm just a broken machine
Though the record may spin
All my lights have gone dim
They've gone dim
They
I'm just a broken machine
Not who I used to be
I'm spinning out of control
Now it's time to go

Take a little spark
From a battery
Electricity
And put me back together
Back together
Yeah
Break a human heart
Add some vanity
Authenticity
And put them all together,
Do whatever
To your broken machine

Hey I'm a broken machine
I can do anything
I've got nothing to hide
Now I start to dream
I'm a mechanical thing
With a layer of shit
And nothing bothers me now
My wheels are my wheels

Take a little spark
From a battery
Electricity
And put me back together
Back together
Yeah
Break a human heart
Add some vanity
Authenticity
And put them all together,
Do whatever
To your broken machine

My head goes forward and my heart goes back
My head goes forward and my heart goes back
My head goes forward and my heart goes back
My head goes, my heart goes
My head goes forward and my heart goes back
My head goes forward and my heart goes back
My head goes forward and my heart goes back
My head goes, my heart goes

Hey, I'm a broken machine
I can do anything
I've got nothing to hide
Now I start to dream
I'm a mechanical thing (take a little spark)
I can do anything
Nothing bothers me now
Now I start to dream
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la
La la la la la la la, la la la la la la la

    Nice job on this. Classy af.....I love this version. I did not have Broken Machine in my NBT top ten, but this song has grown on me. It is in my top ten now. It is such a well-crafted gem of a song. I'm sure my favorites will keep changing over time. It is a compliment to the band that it is hard to pick a top ten. You make great songs. :)
