Too early to break my heart
But you obviously forgot to check the clock
A voice, once so pure
Now crackles like a de-tuned TV set.
The shadow of night
A blanket of comfort
I’m disappearing
Inch by inch.

Don’t follow me
The path’s too long
The thorns too sharp
The pull’s too strong.
So very strong.

Forgotten to close the door
But you obviously know the way to break me
You stroked, now you slice
A human knife cuts me so deeply.
The shadow of death
An obvious ending
I’m disappearing
Inch by inch.

Don’t follow me
The path’s too long
The thorns too sharp
The pull’s too strong.
So very strong.

One final fade,
Sideways, disappearing
Too weak to wave goodbye
Machinist becoming machine.
Machinist becoming machine.

Don’t follow me
The path’s too long
The thorns too sharp
The pull’s too strong.
So very strong.

Machinist becoming machine
Machinist becoming machine
Rusted and spent.
