Machine & Soul starts well with a throbbing intro and screaming guitar however soon goes off the boil. The female vocals are too far forward in the mix maybe a hint at Numans "confidence crisis"! ? The tech-funk beat and "Kippers" guitar style that is present throughout this song (and album) has not yet become obtrusive. Lyrically Numan seems to be on a downer. Not the best song to present to a Numan fan but Gary we forgive you for your little blunder. Machine & Soul got to No 72 in the UK charts. 


Machine & Soul 
(Single from 'Machine & Soul' album, 1992)

She likes film
Pictures too
A friend of mine
Something new

She like girls
Lives my dreams
Eats my face
She says 'Time to make me scream'

No crying
She don't like tears
My one chance 
Is corruption

She likes pain
'E' please, Bob
Some heroes
But she don't like God

She likes rock
Sex machines
She says 'Time to make me bleed'

No romance
No surprise
My one chance
Is perversion

So this is
My secret
And this is
A new way to hide

So this is
My nightmare
And you're my

No memories
My one chance
Is slow motion

So this is
The big lie
So this is
My reason to leave

So this is
My future
And you're my

She likes speed
Low fast cars
Love and hate
Rock and roll stars

She likes cream
Long goodbyes
Someone to watch
She says 'Time to make me cry'

I'm nervous
She scares me
My one chance
Is emotion

So this is
So this is
Something to believe

So this is
God's disease
So this is
A new kind of cure

So this is
A new world
And you're my
Machine and soul

('Machine & Soul' album, 1992)
(Earlier version 'Cry Baby' was b-side to 'Machine & Soul' CD1 single)

I don't cry
Or forget
I'll cut my picture on your heart
No names
You've got one more game to lose

I was young
I was clean
But now my soul eats me alive
I was kind
Now I'm your first big mistake

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

She sold pain
She sold mine
She sold my secrets to the man
She sold lies
And so now I'll break 'The Word'

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

Tear up my picture
Tear up my face
You'll tear up your feelings but the memory's quite safe
Look back in anger
Look back and cry
Look up my number if you want to know why, but

Don't leave
What you gonna do?
Are you gonna break down and cry?

Same need
Same cure
I'll whisper words to ease your shame
Play time
I've got one more trick for you

I don't pray
Wrong man
I don't look for love that I don't need
Wrong place
You've got one more chance to leave 

I Wonder 
(Early version - Wonder Eye)

('Machine & Soul' album, 1992 - Earlier version was b-side to M&S single)

And sometimes
When I'm lonely
I think of you
And I wonder

And sometimes
When someone
Calls your name
I wonder

You changed my life
And you could've changed my world
And I
Miss your voice and
I miss your heartbeat
I miss your face and
I miss you

And sometimes
When I'm sleeping
I dream of you
And I wonder

And sometimes
When I forget
I call for you
And I wonder

You said, 'Goodbye'
You said, 'It's over'
You said, 'I'm tired
And I can't wait
All my life
I won't cry anymore'

And sometimes when
I wonder
I cry for you
And I miss you

And sometimes I
How to feel again
And I miss you
