about

Written during FAWM 2016

I'm a big Killing Joke fan. I was listening to "Money is Not Our God" and I put it on repeat, letting it seep into me. Then I wrote the music.
The lyrics were much harder. I found this phrase that I had written in my Notes on my phone while walking the dog "I am not your God Machine". And the rest flowed.

lyrics

(c) 2016 Savage Vibes

Your promises are all dreamt up
truly burning desires
please kiss my soul
and hack at these holes

feels like forever
in my veins you rust
you are my psychopathic nightmare
The only thing I trust

I am not the God machine
I am not The god you own
Pull the prayers from my nightmares
And shock me
And bleed me
I am not the god you own

bloody bodies
are all piling up
in the bluest of skies
you haunt my memories
these thoughts
always deny
my murderous heart
you grind my truth
and weaken my world
Your scandalous mind
it twists your heart
weakens our world

I am not the God machine
I am not The god you own
Pull the prayers from my nightmares
And shock me
And bleed me
I am not the god you own

This is my trance
This is my trance
This is the yesterday
It’s my ghost dance

Tonight is the night when
Tonight is the night when
Tonight is the night when it all makes sense

Your promises are all dreamt up
truly burning desires
please kiss my soul
and hack at these holes

I am not the God machine
I am not The god you own
Pull the prayers from my nightmares
And shock me
And bleed me
I am not the god you own
