about

On the surface, this song is about a truck driver that lives on uppers and downers to keep himself going night after night. It goes deeper than that, but I’ll let you dig on your own.

lyrics

I’m a Machine

18 wheels on the road.
One big monkey on my back
Take a lot of pills, to keep me going on the long haul,
Take a lot of pills to get to sleep again

I’m a machine, driving a machine, Lord, how did I get this way?
I’m a machine, driving a machine, Lord, how did I get this way?

I’ve got girls, from here to Portland, Oregon,
Seen a lot of action in this old cab.
But there’s no love lost, ‘cause there’s no love to be found -
Out on the highway, every stop’s a station of the cross

I’m a machine, driving a machine, Lord, how did I get this way?
I’m a machine, driving a machine, Lord, how did I get this way?

I used to have a reason to get behind the wheel,
I used to have a reason, for every mile I’d drive
But somewhere in the blur of the white lines on the highway
There’s a hidden message that I just can’t seem to read.

I’m a machine, driving a machine, Lord, how did I get this way?
I’m a machine, driving a machine, Lord, how did I get this way?
Lord, how did I get this way?
Lord, how did I get this way?
