Thaaaat's a song I've wanted to make for a soooo long time !!
On "break up everything" by T-Free. It deals with our daily lifes : we walk, we work, we walk, we sleep, etc... A deadly routine which turns us into stones... And inconsciously, we dream about another life, about a life without the usual grey concrete around us.
But we just can't reach it : we're no more than machines which dream... We are dreaming machines...

Lyrics : Dreaming Machine

[speech : Dammit !!]

1/ 10:30 pm, still filled with
The memories from the day before,
Quiet in the shadow, you're falling
asleep little by little

2/ Another day has ended
With wonderful dreams
Or with nightmares
Which awaken you.

3/ 6:00 am
your eyes slowly open up
Your torpor ends
And now you get up

4/ Automatic movements
Barefoot on the floor
A shower, a breakfast,
And a few morning yawns

5/ You put a jacket,
A suit - as usual
You spend the time left
Combing your hair - as usual

6/ You listen to the news
And to the ads - as usual
With your anxiety
About unexpected events - as usual

7/ You walk in the city,
A short or long distance
You walk without blinking
Without thinking - OSEF [OSEF : French geeks's language for "Don't care" ]

8/ Your life has started again
But even when you get up
You're never more than
A dreaming machine

We're all alive, we can feel we are
When we look at the image reflected by our mirrors
However, inside, there is a void which kill us
We're nothing but dreaming machines
We are alive but we panic
When something is wrong in our mecanisms
Tic-tic, in a restless logic
Nothing but dreaming machines

9/ You observe your life
Without the necessary standing back
You walk foreward little by little
All day long, like yesterday

10/ You meet people
They are different but all alike
With or without cash
And you don't care

11/ You prefer denying
But you know so well
That there will be nothing left
From this day

12/ The night has come. At your home
You hesitate to touch your bed
You're afraid of this awfull
Death, you're afraid of Oblivion

13/ Each day in our life,
In our existance,
Love, hate, joy, sadness,
Share our time

14/ We live in the routine
The echo of the obsession
To keep a clean diagram [yes, even in French, it's weird ^^"]
Without diying alone

15/ That's how everything works
In USA or at the river Rhone
And during this quest
Our ways merge

16/ We all function on the same way,
And we don't enjoy the sweetness
Of life, we're nothing but
Dreaming machines

We walk and never stop
We can feel a void
We can't escape
From our Humanoid life
Dreaming machine
When our souls get tired
Dreaming machine
Until a bolt gets broken

17/ I get up, this morning
As usual, I'm nuts,
In my bathroom
I look at myself through the mirror

18/ Suddenly, it strokes me
Like a bucket of cold water
I'm petrified by the way
My reflect looks at me

19/ What does it mean
This insignificant life ?
Little by little the routine
Turns us into stones

20/ I stare at this image
The white of my eyes becoming acid ;
I can see the reality of our souls,
Terrified by this void

21/ Man, all day long
We function like clockworks
We spend our time to hope
And to fear our relatives

22/ We are aimless
We move in our shells
Until life is becoming a bitch
And until we die foolishly

23/ But I don't want that !
I wanna break up the ceiling
Of the mecanical sky
Which fools us !

24/ Suffocating cause of absurdity,
I panic, I wanna resist
But God doesn't exist
So nobody'll hear me SCREAMING !!!

Hope you liked it ! leave comments and marks !!!
