The Machine​(​live acoustic performance)

by Melissa D

VIP membership exclusive


a song about the pros and cons of big tech


The machine, the machine
the machine, the machine

It makes me feel like your life's much better than mine
It helps me keep in touch and wastes my time
It brings us closer when the world falls apart
It plays my favorite songs when I drive my car

The machine, the machine
the machine, the machine

It makes cash when you and I disagree
It doesn't care about humanity
it helps me reach you when, I'm falling apart
It keeps me up at night and glows in the dark

The machine, the machine
the machine, the machine
