Track 1 on The Machines Album

lyrics

It's hard to take a stand for racing
Hard to take a stand - it's easier to fall
Hard to stay the way you are
When you're staring down from the top of a wall

You say you've got a free reaction
But isn't that story just a little bit tall
You say you've never seen this action before
Oh come on!

So you bought yourself a bottle
Said you're gonna drive for 4000 miles
So you think your roofs are better?
Freebase baby with a faceless smile

You say you've got a free reaction
But isn't that story just a little bit tall
You say you've never seen this action before
Ok lets go racing!

So you're racing to get away
For ever and ever you'll turn your back
Just like other ones
You'll head out east on the battle track

You say you've got a free reaction
But isn't that story just a little bit tall
You say you've never seen this action before
Oh come on now!

You're racing - to get away
You're racing - to get away
You're racing - to get away
You're racing - to get away
To get away, to get away, to get away
Now!

We all grew up listening to The New York Dolls, The Stooges, The Ramones and Patti Smith and we find this aesthetic still informs our sound. This all feeds into the Machines mix, helping to create a powerful live alchemy ... more
