ExtraordinaryMachine

Quoth SongBook

I certainly haven’t been shopping for any new shoes
And I certainly haven’t been spreading myself around
I still only travel by foot and by foot it’s a slow climb
But I’m good at being uncomfortable so I can’t stop changing all the time
I noticed that my opponent is always on the go
And won’t go slow so as not to focus and I notice
He’ll hitch a ride with any guide as long as they go fast from whence he came
But he’s no good at being uncomfortable so he can’t stop staying exactly the same
If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I make the most of it I’m an extraordinary machine
I seem to you to seek a new disaster every day
You deem me doomed to clean my view and be at peace and lay
I mean to prove I mean to move in my own way
And say I’ve been getting along for long before you came into the play
I am the baby of the family
It happens so everybody cares
And wear the sheeps clothes while they chaperone
Curious you’re looking down your nose at me while you appease
Curteous to try and help but let me set your mind at ease
If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I make the most of it I’m an extraordinary machine
Do I so worry you?
Do I need to hurry to say it’s very kind
But it’s to no avail
I don’t want the veil of flowers to
No everything will be just fine
If there was a better way to go then it would find me
I can’t help it the road just rolls out behind me
Be kind to me or treat me mean
I make the most of it I’m an extraordinary machine
