Ash – Machinery Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
Seemed that time was stuck on me
I was on the slide
Drinking in the lobby bar
Numb desensitized
A surge of electricity
A flicker of insides
Jarred by a magnetic force
Out into the night
The full moon’s coursing in my blood
I’m hurtling downtown
The driver’s moving through the gears
The sparks are raining down
Been asleep for oh so long
Forgot I was alive
Oblivious to the 21st century
Immune to the trappings of luxury
Unconscious of a dark machinery
I’m waking up

[Chorus:]
Born in the wrong place
Born without your grace
A past I can’t erase
I want you
I want you
Longing in full flow
Lucid afterglow
That I may never know
I need you [x2]

[Verse 2:]
The air is thick and charged with heat
As the night descends
The pack is on the hunt for blood
Inflamed by your scent
I never felt your loneliness
Until the day we met
Oblivious to the 21st century
Immune to material anxiety
Blind from narcissistic insecurity
I’m waking up
Born in the wrong place
Born without your grace
A mind in outer space
I want you
I want you
Longing in full flow
Lucid afterglow
That I may never know
I need you
I need you, so
What if I am wrong?
If our chance is gone
If you are moving on

[Chorus:}
Born in the wrong place
Born without your grace
Can never leave a trace
I want you
I want you
Longing in full flow
Lucid afterglow
That I may never know
I need you
I need you so
I want you [x3]
I need you so
