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


I was dreamin' when I wrote this
Forgive me if it goes astray
But when I woke up this mornin'
Coulda sworn it was judgment day
The sky was all purple
there were people runnin' everywhere
Tryin' 2 run from the destruction
U know I didn't even care 

'Cuz they say two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999 

I was dreamin' when I wrote this
So sue me if I go 2 fast
But life is just a party, and parties weren't meant 2 last
War is all around us, my mind says prepare 2 fight
So if I gotta die I'm gonna listen 2 my body tonight 

Yeah, they say two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time
So tonight I'm gonna party like it's 1999 

Lemme tell ya somethin'
If U didn't come 2 party
don't bother knockin' on my door
I got a lion in my pocket
and baby he's ready 2 roar grrrraaaarrrrr
Yeah, everybody's got a bomb
we could all die any day
But before I'll let that happen
I'll dance my life away 

Oh, they say two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time
We're runnin' outta time
So tonight we gonna party like it's 1999 

Say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over oops
out of time
So tonight we gonna
Alright, it's 1999
You say it, 1999
1999 don't stop, don't stop, say it 1 more time
Two thousand zero zero party over
oops out of time 

So tonight we gonna
party like it's 1999
we gonna, oww
Yeah, 1999
Don'tcha wanna go
Don'tcha wanna go
We could all die any day
I don't wanna die
I'd rather dance my life away
Listen 2 what I'm tryin' 2 say
Everybody, everybody say party
C'mon now, U say party
That's right, everybody say
Can't run from the revelation, no
Sing it 4 your nation y'all
Tell me what you're singin', baby say
Telephone's a-ringin', mama
Work it down 2 the ground, say
Come on, take my body, baby
That's right, c'mon, sing the song
That's right
Got a lion in my pocket mama grr, say
Oh--and he's ready 2 roar
