Machine Lyrics

[Verse 1]
All my life been sittin' at the table
Watchin' them kids, they're living in a fable
Looks, luck, money and never left a'wishin'
But now it's 'bout time to raise up and petition
All my life been sittin' at the table
Watching them kids, they're living in a fable
Looks, luck, money and never left a'wishin'
Now it's 'bout time to stand up and petition

[Chorus]
'Cause I've been wondering
When you gonna see I'm not for sale
I've been questioning
When you gonna see I'm not a part of your machine
Not a part of your machine


[Verse 2]
I'm not scared of what you're gonna tell me
No, I'm not scared of the beast in the belly
Fill my cup with endless ambition
And paint this town with my very own vision
I'm not scared of what you're gonna tell me
And I'm not scared of the beast in the belly
Fill my cup with endless ambition
And paint this town with my very own vision

[Chorus]
'Cause I've been wondering
When you gonna see I'm not for sale
I've been questioning
When you gonna see I'm not a part of your machine
Not a part of your machine
I am the machine


[Guitar Solo]
I am the machine

[Outro]
'Cause I've been wondering
When you gonna see I'm not for sale
I've been questioning
When you gonna see I'm not a part of your machine
Not a part of your machine

'Cause I've been wondering
When you gonna see I'm not for sale
I've been questioning
When you gonna see I'm not a part of your machine
Not a part of your machine
I am the machine

About “Machine”

“Machine” is the third single from Imagine Dragons' fourth studio album Origins. The song was first teased in their trailer for the album and its release date was announced for Halloween on Zane Lowe’s World Record on October 30, 2018 as well as through an Instagram and Twitter post with the song’s cover.

The message of the song is to stop doing what others try to make you do and follow your heart and do what you have to do. The song also possibly delivers a strong political message to vote for the right person during the upcoming US elections on November 6, 2018.

  • How was this song teased?

    On 4 October 2018, Imagine Dragons tweeted a two minute trailer teasing Origins and how it relates to Evolve. A snippet of the song was featured at the end of the video:

  • What was the process behind the track's creation?

    In an interview with Zane Lowe on the day of its release, Wayne Sermon described the process:

    Yeah, so this is our song we started with Alex da Kid who has been a longtime producer of ours since the beginning. It started with that simple drum thing at the beginning, actually. Super simple. I remember in the studio Dan started going [vocalizing], and so I just kinda latched onto that on the guitar immediately, so I just laid down that. And he just kinda matched that vocally and it took off there.

    Producer Alex da Kid also shared a video of him and the band making the track on his Twitter:
