Parralox - Factory Friends

 

Factory Friends

Written by John von Ahlen

 

Verse 1
Everybody was so quiet, everybody slept now for a while
You could almost see them crying, see them dancing in the summer rain
I told her little secrets while I gently wiped the tears from her eyes
I made a promise standing, I told her that I'd stay by her side

Pre Chorus
Five nights alone
(In the twilight we are silent and defiant)
Come take me home
(We are fighting for our lives and we don't want the Factory)

Chorus
Jumping up and down we want to reunite
But in silence we can only see the night
Did they find us?
Guess that we will soon find out!
Our Factory Friends only want to set things right

Verse 2
We heard the horror stories
We knew that something bad was on
We never realised that we might be singing our last song
We saw the factory and we knew that we would not survive
So many robots leaving and yet not one of them could cry

Repeat Chorus
