about

"This Machine Makes Noise" is Think Machine's first full-length album, and their second release on Impetus Records. The record contains ten tracks recorded at Earth Songs Studio with engineer Joni Elfers in March 2019.

The album's tracks display Think Machine further playing on their sound of pop-sensible, yet angular, disjunct form of punk music, similar to what the band first showcased on their "Split" with fellow DE band Kobika (IMP006).

This album was the last release to be recorded with bassist Ian Berry, who left the band in early 2019.

Track Name: 1000 Voices
I've seen 1000 faces in your eyes
And it looks like they’ve been crying to me
And I've heard 1000 Voices in those cries
And it sounds like they've been dying to me

So let's set things straight yeah I want you to know
If it comes down to it, I'll have to let you go
But don't hear me wrong because I love you so
And I'll reach the end of the world just to let you know
I've taken from you what you can't take back
And at the end of the day, I'm not proud of that
When I look in your eyes I see through your disguise
You long to be young and reckless

I've seen 1000 faces in your eyes
And it looks like they’ve been crying to me
And I've heard 1000 Voices in those cries
And it sounds like they've been dying to me
I've seen 1000 faces in your eyes
And it looks like they’ve been crying to me
And I've heard 1000 Voices in those cries
And it sounds like they've been dying to me

When I look to my past I feel I've wasted my life
It brings me to tears, all those ill spent nights
But given the chance I would do it again
I hope you'll forgive me, it's just the way I am
When the music stops, whether you like it or not
You might just have to give up what you've got
When I look in your eyes I see through your disguise
You long to be far away

1000 Voices, 1000 Voices
1000 Voices, 1000 Voices
Track Name: Did I Stutter
There's people all around me but there's no one there
There's people right in front of me but there's no one there
I know they have their own lives but it's not fair
They're breathing so easily while I'm gasping for air
There's people all around me but there's no one there
There's no one there

So hey just go on, don't pay me no mind
I'm just out here in my own wasting all my time
So just go I don't need you I don't need your eyes
When there's one hundred other faces who can sympathize

There's faces all around me but there's no one there
There's faces all around me but they're unaware
That they're no help at all until they know what's fair
They're breathing so easily while your gasping for air
There's people all around me but there's no one there
There's no one there
Track Name: Papers Please
There's a warrant for my arrest
I've got a lack of government papers
Haven't got a dime to my name
But I need some government papers

When the time comes will you stand as witness?
If you're not scared, then you haven't been listening

There's a warrant for my arrest
I've got a lack of government papers
Haven't got a dime to my name
But I need some government papers

When the time comes will you stand as witness?
If you're not scared, then you haven't been listening
When the time comes will you stand as witness?
If you're not scared, then you haven't been listening
When the time comes will you stand as witness?
If you're not scared, then you haven't been listening
Track Name: Lucy's Song
Running in cirlces around my head
Can’t tell if I’m sick or dead
Feels like I’m dreaming, this can’t be real
Maybe sometimes it’s all in your mind, the position I’m in

What is this feeling that I’m feeling, do you feel it too?

Running and hiding in my bed
These past few weeks I’ve been dying inside the maze in my head
Twisting and turning, beneath my feet
Maybe sometimes it’s all in your mind, the position I’m in

Jumping the hurdles placed within my head
The race is getting easier each conversation we have
Feels like I’m dreaming, this can’t be real
But when you arrive, anxeity subsides and I can feel everything

What is this feeling that I’m feeling, do you feel it too?
I don’t feel much of anything these days but I feel like things
Are starting to go my way and I know that if I take my time
It’s gonna be okay
Track Name: Animals
Animals are running around trying to act like they belong
Animals are stalking their prey trying to act like they belong
Animals are out of their cage trying to act like they belong
You're a fucking animal, you don't know right from wrong

Animals are on the loose, yeah they're running all around
Animals are on the loose and there's poachers all about
Track Name: Bones
Have you ever felt it in your bones?
Unfathomable weight that you can’t hold?
Maybe it’s all just in your head

Sometimes I think about everything I’ve done
And then I dream of dying alone
In a place by myself where no one else can see
That sometimes by yourself’s the best company
I wish I never went out I wish I stayed in bed
But I know it’s dangerous to be alone in your head

Do you ever wish you had a soul?
An autonomous being with some control?
Maybe it’s all just in your head

Have you ever felt it in your bones?
Track Name: Back-Up Plan
They say it's not up to me
Not something I can control
In a world with no free rein
Just another weight for me to hold

I should've kept those notes a secret so you wouldn't find out
They were my back up plan and now I just don't know if I can
Go on

They say that It's up to him
Not something I should control
Just between you and me
I think I'm scared of getting old
Practice what you preach, but I can't do that myself
You got me on my knees and I'm dying to just get out

I should've kept those notes a secret so you wouldn't find out
They were my back up plan and now I just don't know if I can
Go on and tell me that I'm just being overdramatic
But the scars don't heal and the safe way is just to let it happen

But I can't let it happen anymore
But I don't know how to change
Change my urge to jump

I should've kept those notes a secret so you wouldn't find out
They were my back up plan and now I just don't know if I can
I'm not ready I still have too much to say
I'm not ready I still have too much to say
And these scars will heal as long as I don't pick them open
And these scars will heal as long as I just let it happen
Track Name: Morbid
One day I’m gonna bury you
Unless you’re gonna bury me
The grand prize for staying alive
Is watching everyone you love die

Might call it morbid but I call it staying grounded
Might call it morbid but I’m just overjoyed

One day you’re gonna fall apart
One day all your flesh will rot off
One day we’ll see its all for naught
We give our lives and its never enough

Might call it morbid but I call it staying grounded
Might call it morbid but I’m just overjoyed
Live a life that’s all for nothing and it’s fucking perfect
Live a life that’s all for nothing and its beautiful

I don’t wanna waste my life without you
I don’t wanna waste my life alone

As a boy I had to watch you die, in all this time I’ve hardly cried
When I do, I swear it’s never for you
Call me selfish, call me fucking selfish
You left me, you selfish mother fucker, you left me here
You left me all alone
