MACHINE & SOUL

Machine+Soul is Gary's 13th. studio album.

The original album was released by Gary Numans own record label, Numa Records, in 1992.

Machine & Soul
(Single from 'Machine & Soul' album, 1992)

She likes film
Pictures too
A friend of mine
Something new

She like girls
Lives my dreams
Eats my face
She says 'Time to make me scream'

No crying
She don't like tears
My one chance
Is corruption

She likes pain
'E' please, Bob
Some heroes
But she don't like God

She likes rock
MTV
Sex machines
She says 'Time to make me bleed'

No romance
No surprise
My one chance
Is perversion

So this is
My secret
And this is
A new way to hide

So this is
My nightmare
And you're my
Solution

No memories
Nostalgia
My one chance
Is slow motion

So this is
The big lie
So this is
My reason to leave

So this is
My future
And you're my
Corruption

She likes speed
Low fast cars
Love and hate
Rock and roll stars

She likes cream
Long goodbyes
Someone to watch
She says 'Time to make me cry'

I'm nervous
She scares me
My one chance
Is emotion

So this is
Religion
So this is
Something to believe

So this is
God's disease
So this is
A new kind of cure

So this is
A new world
And you're my
Machine and soul


Generator
('Machine & Soul' album, 1992)

We generate heat
We generate emotion
We generate a feeling
That is better left here
Than a memory on a wall

I'd rather cry than forgive you

We generate pain
We generate suspicion
We generate a rumour that's sick
But a rumour that is probably true

I'd rather die than forget you

I won't let my heart slip away from me
I'm talking sex motion
I'm talking 'bout fashion
I'm talking 'bout skin games
I'm talking 'bout secrets

And I won't let my heart run away with me
I'm talking temptation
I'm talking 'bout memories
I'm talking 'bout feelings
I'm talking 'bout emotion

We generate lies
We generate pictures
We generate a video film
That I couldn't let my best friend see

I'd rather lose than forgive you

We generate shame
We generate secrets
We generate a reason for living
And we generate a reason for not

I'd rather hurt than forget you

I can't believe that I'm here
I can't believe what I've seen
I can't believe what I'm doing to you


The Skin Game
(Single from 'Machine and Soul' album, 1992)

Your welcome to fame
Your welcome to try
I've been on TV, sold my face to you

Your welcome to love
Your welcome to me
I burned my dream, sold my heart, nobody knew

Listen children
I've seen my future
Call it the dead line for now
I've heard secrets
I've heard excuses
I've heard a voice in the dark

You're waiting for me
You've made a mistake
I'll give you nothing but lies, or nothing at all

I'm playing a game
I'm playing with you
I call it shameful, 'The skin game', don't you?
You're playing it cold
(Ripping it up)
You're playing for time
(I don't like pictures)
You're breaking my rules and I won't let you go

I'm looking for you
(Welcome to me)
Somebody screamed
(It's no use talking)
I've connections with God, what do you need?

Lost in junk sick
No sleep no motion
She said 'I've nothing to lose'
Love sick? Skin game
Welcome to romance
She's like the heart of the world

I'm still breathing
Welcome to my house
I'd steal from God wouldn't you?
One more question
Am I in danger?
Rumours, and I've got the fear

Looking for you
Is it any wonder?
Tearing it up
I'm living on empty


Poison
('Machine and Soul' album, 1992)

Help me
I'm in disgrace
Witness slow death
all over my face

Help me
Pick up my heart
Tell my friends
Wherever they are

Listen
They stole my dream
New corruption
Know what I mean?

Listen
Do you think I don't know
I've got a face like metal
And a radio

Listen up
Listen up good
New man's fame
Is new man's poison

Stand up
Stand up and fight
Stand up I won't quit so
Stand up and play

Stand up
Stand up and scream
Stand up I won't run so
Stand up and lose

Listen up
Listen up good
Innocence
Is new corruption

Memories?
I don't need
A dead museum
And a grudge to feed

Memories
Re-write shame
Re-arrange the feelings
To ease your pain

Big lie
So this is the word
A needle in my back
And my voice unheard

Big lie
So this is the news
Radio lost
And I've nothing to lose

Nu voice
Said this is insane
I'm trying to learn the rhythm
Of the rule-change game

Nu voice
I'm a clock with no hands
Someone said forgive them
I don't know if I can

Tell me
What did I do?
You'd think I'd sold perversion
To the son of God (who?)

Tell me
What did I say?
I don't believe that honesty
Pays

Listen up
Listen up good
New man's fame
Is new man's poison

Listen up
Listen up good
Innocence
Is new corruption


I Wonder
(Early version - Wonder Eye)

('Machine & Soul' album, 1992 - Earlier version was b-side to M&S single)

And sometimes
When I'm lonely
I think of you
And I wonder

And sometimes
When someone
Calls your name
I wonder

You changed my life
And you could've changed my world
And I
Miss your voice and
I miss your heartbeat
I miss your face and
I miss you

And sometimes
When I'm sleeping
I dream of you
And I wonder

And sometimes
When I forget
I call for you
And I wonder

You said, 'Goodbye'
You said, 'It's over'
You said, 'I'm tired
And I can't wait
All my life
I won't cry anymore'

And sometimes when
I wonder
I cry for you
And I miss you

And sometimes I
Remember
How to feel again
And I miss you


Emotion
(Single, 1991, from 'Machine & Soul' album, 1992)

Look up
Look down
I've seen it all before
I need emotion

Look left
Look right
I've tried it all before
I need emotion

Say nothing
It's over
I sold my soul
Forever

She's tempting
Sex tension
It could be the wrong move

One question
One answer
I don't need
Exposure

I don't know
The slogan
New fashion kills me

Fashion
Tear it up
It don't mean a thing so
Fashion
Tear it up good

Touch me
Picture this
It don't mean a thing so
Touch me
Life is cruel

How did this ever get serious

One night
One touch
I've used them all before
I need emotion

One lie
Too much
I've heard it all before
I need emotion

I'll show you
Religion
Some people
Disgust me

Listen to
Opinion
I'm in a glasshouse

'I've been sick'
She whispers
Abandon
Nostalgia

Remember
My picture
I only work here

I need emotion


Cry
('Machine & Soul' album, 1992)
(Earlier version 'Cry Baby' was b-side to 'Machine & Soul' CD1 single)

I don't cry
Or forget
I'll cut my picture on your heart
No names
You've got one more game to lose

I was young
I was clean
But now my soul eats me alive
I was kind
Now I'm your first big mistake

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

She sold pain
She sold mine
She sold my secrets to the man
She sold lies
And so now I'll break 'The Word'

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

Tear up my picture
Tear up my face
You'll tear up your feelings but the memory's quite safe
Look back in anger
Look back and cry
Look up my number if you want to know why, but

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

Same need
Same cure
I'll whisper words to ease your shame
Play time
I've got one more trick for you

I don't pray
Wrong man
I don't look for love that I don't need
Wrong place
You've got one more chance to leave


U Got The Look
('Machine & Soul album, 1992, also b-side on 'The Skin Game' CD single)

You walked in
I woke up
I've never seen a pretty girl
Look so tough baby
U got that look
Colour me peach and black
Colour me takin' aback
Crucial
I think I wancha

U got the look
U got the hook
U sho' nuff do be cookin' in my book
You're face is jammin'
your body's heck a slammin'
If love is good
Let's get to rammin'
U got the look

U got the look
It musta took
A whole hour just to make up your face baby
Party time, ugly lights, everybody's inspected
But you are a natural beauty unaffected
Did I say an hour?
My face is red
I stand corrected

(Written by Prince)


Love Isolation
('Machine & Soul' album, 1992)

These are words
Just for you
Only words
But it's all I can do

Reasons fade
As reasons can do
All I want
Is to talk with you

You cried with me
Laughed at me
Talked to me
Sheltered me
(You) fought by me
Lied for me
You lived for me

(So) call me
And I'll run to you
Ask me
And I'd die for you

You were there
You were always there
Like a friend
Like a lifelong friend
And I love you

I broke your heart
And you stole mine
memorys lie
But they're all I can find

Call my name
Sing my song
Call for me
I've been wating so long

(Just) call me
And I'll run to you
Ask me
And i'd die for you

You were there
You were always there
Like a friend
Like a lifelong friend
And I miss you


 

THIS SONG IS A INSTRUMENTAL


Cry baby

I don't cry
Or forget
I'll cut my picture on your heart
No names
You've got one more game to lose

I was young
I was clean
But now my soul eats me alive
I was kind
Now I'm your first big mistake

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

She sold pain
She sold mine
She sold my secrets to the man
She sold lies
And so now I'll break 'The Word'

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

Tear up my picture
Tear up my face
You'll tear up your feelings but the memory's quite safe
Look back in anger
Look back and cry
Look up my number if you want to know why, but

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

Same need
Same cure
I'll whisper words to ease your shame
Play time
I've got one more trick for you

I don't pray
Wrong man
I don't look for love that I don't need
Wrong place
You've got one more chance to leave


1999

I was dreamin' when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin'
Coulda sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple
there were people runnin' everywhere
Tryin' 2 run from the destruction
U know I didn't even care

'Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

I was dreamin' when I wrote this
So sue me if I go 2 fast
But life is just a party, and parties weren't meant 2 last
War is all around us, my mind says prepare 2 fight
So if I gotta die I'm gonna listen 2 my body tonight

Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999

Lemme tell ya somethin'
If U didn't come 2 party
don't bother knockin' on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
and baby he's ready 2 roar grrrraaaarrrrr
Yeah, everybody's got a bomb
we could all die any day
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away

Oh, they say two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time
We're runnin' outta time
So tonight we gonna party like it's 1999

Say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over oops
out of time
So tonight we gonna
Alright, it's 1999
You say it, 1999
1999
1999 don't stop, don't stop, say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time

So tonight we gonna
party like it's 1999
we gonna, oww
Yeah, 1999
Don'tcha wanna go
Don'tcha wanna go
We could all die any day
I don't wanna die
I'd rather dance my life away
Listen 2 what I'm tryin' 2 say
Everybody, everybody say party
C'mon now, U say party
That's right, everybody say
Can't run from the revelation, no
Sing it 4 your nation y'all
Tell me what you're singin', baby say
Telephone's a-ringin', mama
Everybody
Work it down 2 the ground, say
Come on, take my body, baby
That's right, c'mon, sing the song
(Party)
That's right
Got a lion in my pocket mama grr, say
Oh--and he's ready 2 roar


In A Glass House

I've seen love
I've seen hate
I've seen all the emotion God creates.
I've seen good 
I've seen bad
I've seen everything that you could ever have.
I've seen you
I've seen me
I've seen everything that I could want to be.
I've seen tall things
I've seen long things
I've seen everything a man was meant to see.

No one came,
no one is here
no one remembers.
MAKES CAMBODIA LOOK LIKE KANSAS,ANYTIME
I've heard truth
I've heard lies
I've heard everything that ever crossed your mind.
I've heard( lust?)
I've heard screams
I've heard everything that makes you give up dreams.
I've heard you
I've heard me
I've heard everything I wish could ever be
I've heard music, new heroes
Then I've heard some things I really wouldn't know

(***** ***** ***** ?)
Look in my heart
you will remember
people came
you (fell?) on me
I can remember
MAKES CAMBODIA LOOK LIKE KANSAS,ANYTIME
I break hearts
I broke mine
I'll break everything I'm given if( ***?) time
I've said things I don't mean
I could lie in front of God and he'll beleive
I (cheat?)( ***?)
I (cheat?) time
I'll take everything you see 
and make it mine
I don't like this confession
(**** **** ****?) heard( **** ****?) all
someone came
(we have the cure?)
I'll always wonder
Friends can change
some go some stay
I can't remember
