Youth with a machine
He needs to know how to handle it all

Youth with a machine
Show him the exits
Among the metal parts
Consign him soft spots

(Targets of the heart)
He needs you now, he needs you
now now more than ever

Youth with a machine
Blinding his eyes are laser lights flashing

Youth with a machine
How many years
Amid the tape and steel?
Record him this message
Say, "Love is real"
He needs you now, he needs you now
He needs you now, now more than ever

Youth with a machine
Wild grid of noise chants "Life is negation"
Youth with machine
(he's) drowning in echo
Amid the stained glass towers
Dead the innocent?
Gone the hour?
He needs you now, he needs you now
He needs you now, now more than ever
