Man & Machine

1)
I walk through the streets of a city so cold
Wondering how far it all has gone
In a world of myth and fantasy, bursting with technology
A fragile balance between new and old

In my head a foreign melody
A disturbing dream of what could be
Too powerful for us to comprehend

A sacrilege? Another page
We break nature's decree
And change what is and what's to come
No second guess, we lose our sanctity

Refrain:
Man and Machine
How can it be?
Gauge new horizons
Crush boundaries

Strive without limit
Feel no restrain
Everything's fair
In this ruthless game

2)
Haunted by screams and visions I flee
Try to run and leave it all behind
The madness of technology, fused with myth and fantasy
The knowledge that it all comes at a price

Abomination of creation
Out of sync with your own time
Faster, stronger, better
Yet …
Slightly crazy, borderline

Refrain:
Man and Machine
How can it be?
Gauge new horizons
Crush boundaries

Strive without limit
Feel no restrain
Everything's fair
In this ruthless game

3)
Hiding away from the truth I have seen
Struggling with my mind to understand
That this is our reality, world of opportunity
No walls to shield us from our own kind

Ignorance and arrogance
Human flaws will serve the cause
Faster, stronger, better
Yet …
The book of life
Has one page left 

Refrain:
Man and Machine
How can it be?
Gauge new horizons
Crush boundaries

Strive without limit
Feel no restrain
Everything's fair
No risk, no gain
