lyrics

In the great machine
Something's got to give
But no-one can agree
What it is

They're pouring in the oil
And tightening the gears
But all their eyes are blind to
The tracks of all the tears
That leave a precious trail of rust

A little girl in blue
Tries to look outside
But through the smoke, she can't see
The starlings as they fly

A thousand neon halos
Round the ladders on the wall
But she won't climb 'cause she knows
That soon the sun will fall
And in a flash she'll lose it all
She sits in the gutter, small

In the great machine
Something's got to give
But no-one can agree
What it is
