This old dark machine, it shakes and it shudders
Pulls to the left, then dies near the gutter
But still in the road, the traffic is silent
The people they stare, and then they turn violent

The faithful they wait, the faithful they wait
By the sign

We will live like this forever, I will love you, I will love you
