lyrics

The machine does as it was intended
Secure in its purpose, divinely effective

Churning, churning, churning 
Its threshers through the clay
Once teeming with faces and names
Now featureless and grey
Smooth out the lumps and soften the paste
Smelt the sentient ore
Save that which will serve; the rest is waste

While you stand by the factory gates pulling faces
And clutching your guts as they flip in their traces
Beneath the clean skin, the rise of your gorge
Belies reliance on the work of the forge

Deny out loud, pout and condemn
The tireless work of this bleak apparatus
Produces the pap on which your kind depends
As you wall yourself off in psychic abscesses

This is how you meant it to be
This is how you need it to be
