part of the machine lyrics – fates warning

just another face in the crowd
wandering towards obscurity.
driven by the dull desires
of a worn out routine.

stagnant in the suffocating silence
of emotional exile,
a fugitive from freedom
surrenders to mediocrity.

a helpless voice
starting to sink.
you could make a choice
but you never learned to think

weary and weakened
victims fall prey
to vague ideals
and p*ssionless play.
systematic spontaneity
in synchronized society.

immersed in the cause
and the call of the day,
sacrificed inner needs
give way.
to shared individuality
in collective reality.

a spirit of belonging
satisfies your longing
but the truth is never seen.
false sense of freedom grows
but dependency shows
your part of the machine.

a hopeless choice,
searching for someone real.
you could find that voice
but you never learned to feel.
