lyrics

state of the art
carbon copy drone
same as the next
clone of a clone
we are building our hive

unknown command
didn't recognize
am i obsolete?
a faulty design
fallen by the wayside

throw me away
off to the pound
but don't pull the plug
please don't shut me down
i am not prepared to die
this machine is alive

are we living beings
or ghosts inside machines?

day in, day out
push and pull to reach the top
put your money to your mouth
dog eat dog or feed the lot
jump the line, not the gun
bite the bullet, take the shot
don't look back, what's done is done
you can never beat the clock

are we living beings
or ghosts inside machines?

beat about the burning bush
fan the fire but i'm no liar
sure as hell there's more to tell
than the sum of all you see
what you read between the lines
sure is no concern of mine
but in the vault i feel unsafe
bound to make a big escape

are we living beings
or ghosts inside machines?
fading batteries
with blood like mercury
