Watch it as it moves and hear its noise
and know the truth.
Words fed into wires. Ideas inspired
in modern youth.
The story is our own, but we've shown
how it all ends.
Is it of this world or from beyond?
Electric friends.

In the Machine no one lies
In the Machine no one dies.

There's no need to feel. Emotions off.
No love or hate.
The message should be clear. There is no fear
we replicate.
Darkness is our friend. Mechanical sin
and secret thoughts
The movie flickers on replays the
lessons we were taught

In the Machine no one lies
In the Machine no one dies.

Now you feel the surge you've thrown the switch,
and come alive.
Time to let it go, and then you'll know
the one called Five.
See the broken glass, the severed paths
of it's return.
The past is swept away, it's here to stay
it's time they learn.

In the Machine no one lies
In the Machine no one dies.
