The Life Machine (Tubeway Army)

Me i've just died But some machine keeps on humming I'm just an extra piece of dead meat to keep running Why won't you let me die in peace Why won't you let me die with some kind of honour Why won't you let me die at all I know You've got your principles My body lies immobile I left it days ago And me i watch from somewhere as the loved ones come and go I see them glancing at the switch I hear them whispering "maybe it's beter that way" I see the love turn into feelings I know Aren't quite the same I see the men of learning Pacing to and fro But how can i expect the sane to ever know I'd rather die than have no mind I know my brain is gone "damage beyond repair" I see an empty shell below me I know I've had my time
