Ever been stuck in a lift? Or a revolving door which suddenly stops and jams? Modern life can trap you inside its systems, and once inside, you are helpless. Somebody knows where the switch is, what the password is, somebody knows how to control it but it isn’t you!


Nobody hears me when I scream,
nobody knows the fix I’m in
Thought I could make it to the end of the dream
But look at me now –
I’m stuck inside this machine. Stuck inside a machine
you know what I mean, it’s no place to dream
it looks like my life is going from the absurd to the obscene

cos baby I’m stuck inside a machine Oh -
Help me if you can, if you can, can you help me
Help me if you can, if you can, can you help me
Help me if you can, if you can, can you help me
I’m smiling but the fact is I’m stuck inside a machine. Oh –

I’ve tried everything I know, but nothing will work
These knobs don’t do anything, not on Planet Earth
And now my hopes are shot, I see myself for what I’m not
I might look the part, I might scratch the spot
But underneath

the truth is I’m stuck inside a machine Oh –
Working so hard I get nothing to show it
Pouring my heart like a ragtime poet
Hoping to God I don’t mess up and blow it

- still smiling but
Now I’m freezing at the roadside
waiting for the breakdown truck
To come and pull me out of this rut
I’m so tired, trying to figure the right button to press
I’m so wired, just got to get myself out of this mess
But nobody hears me when I scream
I’m trapped inside a groundhog scene
Maybe it’s just my bad dream
Or maybe it’s really true and I’m stuck inside a machine. Oh –
