Gears Lyrics (by Damages)

I have the gears, but not the plans and now the gears, they won’t align
To make this machine run in a straight line
These are the only absolutes that I have come to know
I try to fix repairs, but they keep on piling up
And now my hands are sore and bruised from all the now stripped screws
That I have tried to turn and turn, trying to keep it from falling apart
…And I often wonder is this what I should truly strive for? Is this what I really want? Is it what you really want? But I know you don’t have the answers and no one will tell me what I want to hear
This puzzle, it falls apart
We struggle with it from the start
Ticking clocks perpetuate the disease
And the only cure is to break off clean and try and start the way that I have always intended
Too many years spent evaluating the weight of the pros and cons
When the answer’s clear…wipe the slate clean
This puzzle, it falls apart
We struggle with it from the start
…From the start…from the start…make this machine run…make it run
We only get one clean slate, now littered with the choices that we’ve made
…have rusted these gears, and now I cannot move
in this failed direction, I haven’t moved
…From the start…from the start…make this machine run…make it run
I grow further and faster away from something significant, and nothing scares me more. The choices I’ve made have turned into my regrets and I wish I had the strength to turn these gears to make this machine run
