  • Lyrics: The Machine The machines will rust your dreams and. Fill you up with hate I would like to know you But I don’t know how too If I stay I must relate…. Because they are here Yes they’re here. I live amongst the young professionals On their phones to better times The avenues are changing Cheap buildings overflow The fortress, sense foreboding So affluence it grows A suburban occupation The city it is changing And it makes me uncomfortable. The machines will rust your dreams And fill you up with hate Id like to know you Think I am learning how to To stay I must relate… Because they’re here Yes they’re here They’re here They’re here. They’re here Yes they’re here They’re here… (Lyrics/Music..C.L.Hicken)
