machine gun lyrics – portishead

i saw a saviour
a saviour come my way
i thought i’d see it
at the cold light of day
but now i realise that i’m
only for me

if only i could see
you turn myself to me
and recognise the poison in my heart
there is no other place
no one else i face
remedy, we’ll agree, is how i feel
here in my reflecting
what more can i say?
for i am guilty
for the voice that i obey
too scared to sacrifice a choice
chosen for me

if only i could see
you turn myself to me
recognise the poison in my heart
there is no other place
no one else i face
the remedy, to agree, is how i feel
