Lyrics[edit | edit source]

The Machine and the Crow's cover on SoundCloud.
I am awake
I am walking in this scene
You say to me "I am only a machine."
Blah blah blah blah blah blah blah
I shake my head:
"You are the best friend that I've ever had."

I am asleep
I am dreaming in this scene
I've got a crow, and the Crow's name is Marlene
She has no wings she was never a "Fly bird."
She was the worst friend that I've ever had

Let's meet in a dream
And I will laugh because you are only a silly old machine
Nobody I know cares about a dumb machine
Lets meet in a dream
And I will laugh because you are only a silly old machine
Nobody I know cares about a dumb machine

You say that "that was mean"
That only I would say so many things that you would find obscene
To watch my tongue so I don't hurt nobody else
Then I turn to her
Her face is screwed up in this agonizing, painful, crying stare.
Her head begins to spark as water lines her face.
I loved my machine
I didn't mean to break her plastic body
Wasn't this a dream?
I wouldn't have said that if this was not a dream!
