Lyrics

It's not the things that you want
It's what you give away
It's not those things that you need
No matter what you say
It's not the work load that's heavy
If the playing is good
You can't always be bad
You can't always be good

We're all marching to a different drum
It don't matter what road you're on
It's just the Big Machine
Driving us insane

You can fly your flag
On Independence Day

You can do what you want
Yeah it's the home of the brave
But for me and my love
We're going away
We talked about it a lot
Decided not to stay

Too many trying to get to the top of the tree
But that's no place, love, for you and me
It's just the Big Machine Driving us insane
It's just the Big Machine
And we don't want to play that game

LET'S GO!

Now you think you've got it
But you've got nothing at all
You think you're on your way
You're surely going to fall
Caught in the system
Like everyone else
Take a look in the mirror
All you've got is yourself

You think you're doing what you want to do
Don't you know the Big Machine's got you
Driving us insane
It's just the Big Machine
And we don't want to play that game
It's just the Big Machine
It's just the Big Machine
It's just the Big Machine
