    Lyrics
    Down in the park
    Where the Machmen meet
    The machines are playing kill-by-numbers
    Down in the park with a friend called Five
    
    I was in a car crash
    Or was it the war?
    But I've never been quite the same
    Little white lies like I was there
    
    Come to Tom-Tom's, a place to eat
    Like it was built in one day
    You can watch the humans
    Try to run
    
    Oh, look, there's a rape machine
    I'd go outside if it looks the other way
    You wouldn't believe
    The things they do
    
    Down in the park
    Where the chant is 'Death, death, death'
    Till the sun cries morning
    Down in the park with friends of mine
    
    We are not lovers
    We are not romantics
    We are here to serve you
    A different face but the words never change
