lyrics

Machine

We were taken from the ore-bed and the mine,
We were melted in furnace and the pit.
Cast and wrought, we hammered to design.
Cut we were and filed and tooled: gauged we to fit.

We can run and race and swim, swim and fly and dive.
We can pull and haul and push, push and lift and drive.

Take the Western Ocean. Ocean in the stride
Of seventy thousand horses. Horses and some screws.
Be humble, as you crawl beneath our rods -
Our touch can alter all. All created things.

We can run and race and swim, swim and fly and dive.
We can pull and haul and push, push and lift and drive.
