lyrics

Standing in line in the queue for the cash machine
Success is an illusion, with an element of progress
Moving slowly to the beat of a silent drum
Scared to make a sudden movement,
Like a rabbit in a headlock

You're alone with the Self Machine,
You're alone with the Self Machine,
You're all alone and in love with the Self Machine

Sitting on a beach very chilly in the setting sun
Claustrophobic in the tundra, with an embarrassment of riches
Everybody happy, is there anybody having fun?
Trapped inside a calculator, bleeding like a radiator

You're alone with the Self Machine,
You're alone with the Self Machine,
You're all alone and in love with the Self Machine
You're alone with the Self Machine, admit it
There's something wrong with your self esteem
