People on the airwaves always preach who I should be
How to dress
How to talk
“Baby” how to breathe
Wicked artist use their limber fingers
To paint pictures of what young girls are to aspire to be
I’m not alive if I’m not on illegal weed
I’m not in love without a man sitting next to me
Someone tell me if this is all an illusion
Or if I’m just a cog in the…
(CHORUS)
21st Century machine
It’s the place to be…
In the 21st Century Machine
Shelf light and live precariously
VERSE II
Sipping on rosè is your best solution
Down it all till your stumbling with past confusion
Then
Wake up and do it all over again
You only live once, Friday nights your only friend
And you shouldn’t worry
About your weight
And trust me when you’re not looking they’ll all still say you look great
Oh they’ll still say you look great
BRIDGE:
I’m in peril, they wanna give me hell
They look at me with hungry eyes as I’m another Infidel
But oh they like me
That’s why they wish me well
That’s why they pull me gently as I’m trapped inside their meld
Chorus:
In the 21st century machine
It’s the place to be
In the 21st century machine
Shelf light and live precariously
In the 21st century machine
It’s the place to be
ENDING;
And if you saw me right now
Would you still remember me??

I can’t wait forever
Even though you want me to
I can’t wait forever
To know if you’ll be true
CHORUS
Time won’t let me, oh no
Time won’t let me, oh no
Time won’t let me wait that long
Can’t you see I’ve waited too long
To love to hold you in my arms
CHORUS
I can’t wait forever
Even though you want me to
I can’t wait forever
To know if you’ll be true
CHORUS
I can’t wait that long
I can’t wait that long
I can’t wait that long
Don’t wanna wait that long
Not gonna wait that long
For you lovin’ baby baby
Not gonna wait that long

You put the boom boom into my heart,
You send my soul sky high when your lovin’ starts.
Jitterbug into my brain,
Goes bang bang bang till my feet do the same.

But something’s bugging me
Something ain’t right
My best friend told me
What you did last night.

Left me sleeping
In my bed.
I was dreaming
But I should’ve been with you instead.

CHORUS
Wake me up before you go go,
Don’t leave me hanging on like a yo-yo.
Wake me up before you go go,
I don’t wanna miss it when you hit that high
Wake me up before you go go,
‘Cause I’m not planning on going solo.
Wake me up before you go go,
Take me dancing tonite.
I wanna hit that high…

You get the gray skies outta my way,
You make the sun shine brighter than Doris Day.
Turn a bright spark into a flame,
My beats per minute never been the same.

‘Cause you’re my lady,
I’m your fool.
Makes me crazy
When you act so cruel.

C’mon baby,
Let’s not fight.
We’ll go dancing
And everything will be alright.

REPEAT CHORUS

Cuddle up baby,
Move in tight.
We’ll go dancing tomorrow night.

It’s cold out there
But it’s warm in bed.
They can dance,
We’ll stay home instead.

CHORUS
Give me your heart, let me take it all away
Give me your lungs, breathe life into my day
Cause I need, I need, to pixelate
Oh I need, I need, to pixelate

V1
I feel heat, rising from below
I see you, moving soft and slow
I hear voices, and they speak only your name
I make choices, that would bring most to shame

CHORUS
Give me your heart, let me take it all away
Give me your lungs, breathe life into my day
Cause I need, I need, to pixelate
Oh I need, I need, to pixelate

V2
I feel close, I turn and you’re not there
Freeze over, realise you don’t care,
I hear voices, (Mmmm) and they are crueller than you,
I make choices, and the judgement follows through

CHORUS
Give me your heart, let me take it all away
Give me your lungs, breathe life into my veins
Cause I need, I need, to pixelate
Oh I need, I need, to pixelate

MIDDLE 8
I feel heat, rising from below,
I see you, moving soft and slow,
I hear voices, and they speak only your name/I feel close, I turn and
You’re not there
I make choices that would bring most to shame/Freeze over, realise you
Don’t care,
Give me your heart, let me take it all away/I hear voices, and they are
Crueller than you,
Give me your lungs, breathe life into my veins/I make choices, and the
Judgement follows through
Cause I need, I need, to pixelate/Give me your heart, let me take it all
Away
Oh I need, I need, to pixelate/Give me your lungs, breathe life into my
Veins
Cause I need, I need, to pixelate
Oh I need, I need, to pixelate

INSTRUMENTAL

We pixelate, take it all away (we pixelate, can’t watch us pixelate)
We pixelate, take it all away (we pixelate, now take it all away)
We pixelate.

Mmmm…. Mmmm…

There was a motive
There was a motive behind
I was the target
But I won’t be victimised
Even tough I wasn’t game,
Shoulda told me anyway
Even if I disagree
Stabbing only makes us bleed

CHORUS
But you got caught, you got caught
I won’t take any more, oh
You wanna play like that stab me more in the back, bitch
Your silent thought, silent thought
All the lies to explore, oh
You wanna play like that stab me more in the back, bitch

No open channel
Just a one way circuit line
I’ll always find out
Pursue and truth will be out
Hidden under your disguise
There’s a person I disgrace
I discovered discreet lies
Think they call that one two faced

CHORUS

Oh, Oh
Even though I wasn’t game, shoulda told me anyway
Oh, Oh,
Even if I disagree, stabbing only makes us bleed
Faces you wore, you wore, you wore
Hidden under your disguise there’s a person I disgrace
You waged a war on me what for?
I discovered discreet lies, think they call that one two faced

CHORUS

You got caught, you got caught
I won’t let you ignore
You wanna play like that stab me more in the back, bitch
Silent thought, silent thought
You won’t talk to me no
You wanna play like that stab me more in the back, bitch
