Cash Machine


Recorded by: Two Ton Boa
Written by: Sherry Fraser

Lyrics

Something's cracked inside
Like the liberty bell
My heart clanking flat
Like that cold abandoned shell

Bankrupt thoughts
Steal my hope
Fix the bail
Charge me interest while
I'm stuck in your plastic jail
From my cell I hear
The clink
Of my freedom ring
Inside the belly of
your cash machine

It should be Criminal
With a capitol "C"
How you try to hook me
With your false promises

These happy endings
Ring a bell
Steal my hope!
Fix the bail
Sell it back to me at cost
In your fancy jail
Like the sun I watch it sink
Like a holy grail
Inside the belly
Of your cash machine

Faceless metal miser
Hoarding desires
Crowned with a briar patch
Of tangled razor wire
You grant
You damn
From your throne in my hands
My mechanical messiah
You've robbed my kingdom blind!

Nickel and dimed
It surely comes as no surprise
I can't afford your paradise
The one that rings me up
And smiles

You cast a spell!
Steal my hope
Set the bail
Sell it back to me at cost
In your fancy jails

You won't rest
Until I sink
Every living thing
Inside the belly
Of your Cash Machine

Faceless metal miser!
Hoarding desires
Crowned with a briar patch
Of tangled razor wire
You grant
You damn
From your throne in my hands
My mechanical messiah
You've drained my kingdom dry!
