Crown The Empire – Machines lyrics

[Verse:]
We hold onto the lies, to feel free,
So shackled by smiles, so empty,
We're scared of the war so we forgotten who we are.
We've traded in hope, for safety,
We're raising the smoke, insisting
That we're all too tired to light the fire and change the earth.

[Pre-Chorus:]
But if all we are is just machines,
Then let's become a miracle and break free from these chains.
We must be more than just machines,
So let them hear our hearts, so let them hear our hearts,
So let them hear our hearts, so let them hear our hearts
!

[Chorus:]
Where will you run,
When there's no place left for you to hide?
When you're faced with the fire,
Will you step for the future and swallow your pride?!
(Where will you run?! Where will you run?!)

[Verse 2:]
Sometimes I feel like I'm
The only one who dares to dream.
And screams at the top of my lungs!
I hope it'll prove you wrong.

[Pre-Chorus:]
But if all we are is just machines,
Then let's become a miracle and break free from these chains.
We must be more than just machines,
So let them hear our hearts, so let them hear our hearts.

[Chorus:]
Where will you run,
When there's no place left for you to hide?
When you're faced with the fire,
Will you step for the future and swallow your pride?!
Where will you run (where will you run),
When there's no place left for you to hide?
When you're faced with the fire (when you're faced with the fire),
Will you step for the future and swallow your pride?!

[Bridge:]
If all we are is just machines,
Then we must be the cogs inside the wheels of change.
We must be more than just machines,
We can't afford to hide, we must embrace the pain!
(If all we are is just machines,
Then we must be the cogs inside the wheels of change.)
We must be more than just machines,
We can't afford to hide, we must embrace the pain!

[Chorus:]
Where will you run,
When there's no place left for you to hide?
When you're faced with the fire,
Will you step for the future and swallow your pride?!

    I think this song has to do with everyone constantly waking up everyday constantly doing the same thing over and over and over in the same pattern. Just think we all wake up go to work come home maybe sometimes go out with friends then go to sleep it's a constant chain. It's a machine type thing machines do things over and over but what's beyond what we do there's gotta be more to life "we must be more than just machines"
