This song , a rather chunky lump of rock, explores themes such as the inherent emptiness of over-consumption, the modern Australian collision of overt political corruption and public existentialism, and the underlying motivational forces that spring from a need for love and acceptance. Well it sort of does anyway.. – Need Machines – I see this city before me Corruption runs through its veins From judges out to the junkies We humans all built the same Need Machines They keep us clean Need Machines Where you been? We’re losing hope on this highway And we’ve been having these dreams I feel this temperature rising Just where am I meant to be? We take our pen and our paper We try to write what we see I’m feeling wasted on these fresh ideas Ideas set us free
(drop!) Freedom forms Back of a dirty restaurant Freedom forms Turn it off turn it on Need Machines They keep us clean Need Machines Baby where you been? Need Machines Need Machines Need Machines
