The mechanical wonder is
It's just a noise in my room
And I'm chasing the wonder and
It's just a hole in my tune

And the radio plays but it
But it don't sing a song
And the mechanical thunder is
What is all going wrong

And I walk down the road and I
I awake in a tune
But the mechanical thunder is
It's just a noise in my room

And we rode it once
On a thundering night
So I walk with you
Where the locks take flight

All machines make our lives today
And I like them the best
But the mechanical thunder is
It's just a noise in my head

And the radio plays at me
But it don't sing a song
But the mechanical wonder is
Ah, it's all going wrong

And they rode it once ("and we rode it once" on last chorus)
On a thundering night
So I walk with you
Where the locks take flight
And we keep on through
It's where the road don't roar
Where the farm once stood
Where the union crawls, big time

The machines that I'm walking from
Though they play in the songs
And the dreams that your holding on
Don't run for so long

So I'm hiding machines away
But I keep them for you
But the things that you want to say
It's just a noise in my room

And I look at the picture now
And there's a weight on us all
But the mechanical wonder is
It's a cure one and all
