Jamie T - The Man's Machine

This song is one of our first songs off the new album. It`s about punks, skins, straights.

I was walking along the streeT
Minding my own affair
Suddenly two policemen grabbed me
And I wasn`t aware. 
They said, "Is your name Mensi?"
I said, "Why sure". 
He says, "You`re the punk
That I`ve been waiting for.
You`re nicked"

Better the devil you know
Confess I guess I was the lesser of the two evils
Convalesce about the stress the test caused
Had me up and on the board,
Now I`m chairman of the board
I`m coming back for sequels
Do you ever really think you`ve won?
Now you`re feeble
Nothing on this far-gone son
All these people
They`re laughing at the shit I`ve done 
I`ve sailed the seven seas to catch a breeze and took it back home in a trunk
Met a matador who said it`s my woman is more
Terrifying than any red bull that he saw
Set a sail set a rail
Met them Kings and Queens
There`s so many trust
Just the amphetamines
Well her dream would`ve been
That the boy`s got clean
That her father never got his heart
Caught up in the man`s machine
Well it seems even if I got away
There`s always a part of me willing to stay

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we`ve got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Underground travelling
Overcast weather

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we`ve got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Maybe one day things`ll get better

Check, check, check, check
1, 2, 3, kick 

I met gods and monsters
Women from Wisconsin
Swimming in linen
With another 
That`s not their partner
Chicago be selfish drum
On my journey
I met Ernie
So he spoke like Al Capone got drunk
I`m a lover, I`m a brother, my son
I`m a traitor and I`m on the run
Watch ‘em come

As she said
While she driving in her car
Getting drunker than the bar
She`s been smacking hard shoulders
Since before she`s legal
I`m a dragnet
Right on through the city of sin
It`s the hard done bastards
Taking it in
Well I see what I say
Save it on the way
They can`t sit bawling
But they`re bawling away
Well she cries all her tears
But with all of her fears
Well she run away
She had a place
Now all they ever see is the fears
Take it as she`s seen it
Get away
Well there`s always a part of us
Willing to stay

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we`ve got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Underground travelling 
Overcast weather

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we`ve got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Maybe one day things`ll get better

So run, run boyo
Chase it to the border, border
Should have also‘ve told her
I was cannon fodder
Would`ve if I could`ve screamed to her
Shout and holler
Then I could`ve saved the girl from the 
Man`s Machine

Run boyo
Chase it to the border, border
Should have also‘ve told her
I was cannon fodder
Would`ve if I could`ve screamed to her
Shout and holler
Then I could`ve saved the girl from the 
Man`s Machine

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we`ve got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Underground travelling
Overcast weather

Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
All we`ve got to keep us together
Stone, glass, concrete and gravel
Maybe one day things`ll get better
