Feed the machine    (video)

 

    Am - G - Dm - Am (2x)     -  Am ~ ~        - Am ….

 

          Am

1. Addressing those beneath from high above,

          Am

    convincing his belief for what you love.

     Am

    Baiting every hook with filthy lies,

       Am

    another charlatan to idolize.

F                     Am                         D

    Is this suppression just in my mind ? ( just in my mind ? )

F                   Am                             D

    No more questions, get back in line ! ( just get back in line !)

 

                             Am                           F                         D

You pay with your life, the duller the knife, the longer it takes,

                           Am                           F                            D

but now it's your turn, the ashes will burn, and wither away.

                      Am                         F                                D

Leaving your bones out on the stones, picking them clean,

                           Am                                F                            D

and carving the truth, while harvesting you to feed the machine.

 

+  Am ~ ~

 

             Am

2. The gears forever turn to grind the mice.

           Am

    Will you become the fuel for sacrifice ?

     Am

    Power absolutely, all for show,

           Am

    the piper blows his flute and off you go !

F                 Am                            D

    Is this obsession behind your eyes ? ( behind your eyes ? )

F                   Am                             D

    No more questions, get back in line ! (just get back in line !)

 

+  CHORUS

 

+  Am ~ ~       +  Am - G - Am - G (2x)

 

    F                          G                              Am

+     Why must the blind always lead the blind ?

 

    ( Get back in line ! Get back in line ! )

F                   G                           Am

    Why do I feel like the fault is mine ?

 

    ( Get back in line ! Get back in line ! )

F                            G                    Am

    Why must the weakest be sacrificed ?

 

    (Get back in line ! Get back in line ! )

F                    G                              D

    No more questions, get back in line !

 

    ( Just get back in line ! )

 

                             Am                           F                         D

You pay with your life, the duller the knife, the longer it takes,

                           Am                           F                            D

but now it's your turn, the ashes will burn, and wither away.

                      Am                         F                                D

Leaving your bones out on the stones, picking them clean,

                           Am                                F                            D

and carving the truth, while harvesting you to feed the machine.
