MACHINE & SOUL INFO

Machine & Soul starts well with a throbbing intro and screaming guitar however soon goes off the boil. The female vocals are too far forward in the mix maybe a hint at Numans "confidence crisis"! ? The tech-funk beat and "Kippers" guitar style that is present throughout this song (and album) has not yet become obtrusive. Lyrically Numan seems to be on a downer. Not the best song to present to a Numan fan but Gary we forgive you for your little blunder. Machine & Soul got to No 72 in the UK charts. 

MACHINE & SOUL LYRICS

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


Soul Protection 
('Outland' album, 1991)

Johnny's got a job
Spreading the cure
Self employed
He's a one man crusade

We want to give you your soul protection

Something inside
Big mistake
Spread the word
To the new generation

We want to give you your soul protection

One more night
One more dream
One more time
One more scream
One more heart
One more name
One more chance
For your soul protection

Johnny's got pride
'I'll pay it all back'
Now he calls it
'The poetry of motion'

Listen to this
This is life
Listen to your heart
And you're living under clock law

We want to give you your soul protection

Hide your fear
Hide your shame
Hide your tears
And hide your pain
Hide your face
Hide your name
Hide your need
For your soul protection

Everyone's scared
Big glass house
Don't throw stones
At your soul protection

Johnny's got faith
Prays to God
Mention love
And he calls it 'nostalgia'

We want to give you your soul protection 


Confession 
('Outland' album, 1991)

Listen up
This is confession
This machine motion is sure to break my heart

Listen up
This is confession
Recorded music sticks in the throat of God

IOU you don't own me
IOU you don't own me
Party time, one more night, everybody's affected

Listen up
This is confession
You are a poison that flows into my veins

Listen up
This is confession
I've never been so scared of letting you down

You know me, so come closer
You know me, so come closer
Party time, one more town, everybody's affected

I know you, you don't need me
I know you, you don't need me
Party time, one more girl, everybody's affected

Listen up
This is confession
They tell me heaven just has to be somewhere

Listen up
This is confession
I'd lie to God if I could make him believe

You owe me, and I need you
You owe me, and I need you
Party time, one more game, everybody's affected

This is my confession
This is my confession
Party time, one more lie, everybody's affected
