Lyrics for Age of Machine by Greta Van Fleet:

Verse 1
Perfect child
Plugged in since the womb
Prophet of the dune
In this electric tomb
Man has made
An omnipresent force
Heading on a course
For interstellar shores

Verse 2
God machine
Malfunctioned as it grew
And the circuits blew
Falling down on you
Now you're free
Unplug from the source
No more underscores
Open up the doors

Chorus
Feeling
Oh god, the feeling
We need some healing
We need some healing
God knows if you feel defeated
You have been cheated
You have retreated

Guitar Solo

Chorus
Feeling
Oh god, the feeling
We need some healing
We need some healing
God knows if you feel defeated
You have been cheated
You have retreated

Song Facts

“Age of Machine” is the second single from Greta Van Fleet’s upcoming sophomore album The Battle at Garden’s Gate, to be released April 16th, 2021.

The almost 7 minutes long song is the first look into a more epic and cinematic style compared to the band’s previous work. The vocalist, Josh Kiszka, told Rolling Stone they “wanted to do something on the scale of a film score” for this album.

The song’s title can be seen as a reference to “Age of Man”, the opening track from the band’s first album Anthem of The Peaceful Army. Coincidentally or not, “Age of Man” happens to be the track that resembles this more epic approach the most in that first album.

The lyrics filled with grandiose metaphor seem to tackle humanity’s dependency on technology and a desire to be free from it.
