Tina Arena – The Machine's Breaking Down lyrics

Proven patterns breaking down
All controls gone underground
We should have never come to this
Yet here we stand
Devoid of optimists

The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
We set the wheels in motion
Now we're caught in the commotion
The machine's breaking down

Lebanon Iraq Iran
Ethiopia and Afghanistan
Religion and politics, plunder and rape
While the weak cow down
And pray for escape

The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
We set the wheels in motion
Now we're caught in the commotion
The machine's breaking down

Addicts bent on self-destruction
A billion dollars for the masters of seduction
Despair and hope go hand in hand
Charting the inevitable course of man
Bloody images bounce off the wall
As the satellite pictures tell it all
While common goals and common ground
Disappear as the world breaks down

The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
We set the wheels in motion
Now we're caught in the commotion
The machine's breaking down

The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
The machine's breaking down
(Repeat to fade)
