MACHINE & SOUL INFO

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 LYRICS

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
MTV
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
Solution

No memories
Nostalgia
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
Corruption

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
Religion
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


Your Fascination 
(Single from 'The Fury' album, 1985)

My confession
I'll steal anything in sight or sound
My confession
This is the sound of fear
And I'll fall down
No more pictures
For now now now
No more pictures
For now now now

I don't suppose you ever laughed at me
Your fascination leaves me cold
I don't suppose you ever laughed at me
Your fascination leaves me cold
I don't suppose you ever loved at all

I don't need it
If you're gonna leave
Then do it soon
I don't need it
Everything you've ever seen I've seen before

Leave her to me
For now now now
Leave her to me
For now now now

I don't suppose you ever laughed at me
Your fascination leaves me cold
I don't suppose you ever laughed at me
Your fascination leaves me cold
I don't suppose you ever loved at all

I don't need it
I don't need it
I don't need it
For now now now
I don't need it
For now now now

I don't suppose you ever laughed at me
Your fascination leaves me cold
I don't suppose you ever laughed at me
Your fascination leaves me cold
I don't suppose you ever loved at all

If you want it
Every little girl is welcome here
If you want it
Every little girl is welcome here
If you want it
Every little girl is welcome here
If you want it
Every little girl is welcome here 


Outland 
('Outland' album, 1991)

I'm in Outland
Sex tension
She whispers things I need

Look in her heart
Slow motion
'I've been expecting you'

I'm in Outland
I'll do anything

I'm in Outland
Storm my heart
Tear me up if you like

Come closer
Say nothing
I've got something for you

I shape sound
I shape time
I'll shape your world for you

I'm in Outland
I'll do anything

I'm in Outland
Emotion
Dark whispers in my head

Got the sex scream
On new film
I've got the friend I need

Don't play safe
Don't play games
Don't play if you can't lose

I'm in Outland
I'll do anything 


Respect 
('Metal Rhythm' album, 1988)

That's OK
If that's the way you want to play it
I don't mind
I can play it any way

You won't stop
Until I pull you to pieces
Which I will in time
But I'm still curious

You're so young
Not one backbone between you
But you think you'll make a hero
Quite peculiar

You're just boys
You don't know what you've angered
Did you know you're talking to the heart
Of the machine

Welcome boys
Welcome to the real world
I could almost feel sorry
But I could be wrong

I know you
I know what you've been doing
I know where you live
And I know where you are

You know me
I'm the smiling assassin
You know I won't forgive
And you know I won't forget
