The doctor says "it's got to go"
The body's weak but you can keep your soul
I don't know

The heart begins to atrophy
And when it's gone will what's left still be me?
Or us? Or them? My friends?

Take good care of the machines
And the machines will take good care of you

On the street I can pass
But underneath I am sand and glass
Built to last

They were always there for me
And now I am always there for them
My only friends

Take good care of the machines
And the machines will take care of you

Memories are all I am
And now they're in someone else's hands
They won't let me forget

The heat begins to slip away
Frozen in these never ending days
I sit and wait to break

Take good care of the machines
Or the machines will take care of you

From I to us from rust to dust
Atoms in the body of our host
The parts that make the whole

We are thrown back to the sea
An ocean filled with orphan processes
We are one and we is gone
