Pink Floyd: A New Machine Meaning
A New Machine Lyrics
I have always looked out from behind these eyes
it feels like more than a lifetime
feels like more than a lifetime
Sometimes I get tired of the waiting
sometimes I get tired of being in here
is this the way it has always...

Maybe just tired of everything. No sugar coating. Termial Frost in between pt1&2. Don't worry. Nobody lives forever.

This song is the perspective of conscienceness as a whole. The lyrics are the introspections of the conscienceness in all of us.
"I have always been here..."
"I have always looked out from behind these eyes"
"feels like more than a lifetime"
This is saying how conscienceness has always been here, in people. Observing the world. The "feels like more than a lifetime" part is refering to the fact that it has been here more than a lifetime even though a single human's conscienceness only lasts a lifetime.
The rest of the song is basically questioning itself. Why is it here? Is there even a "why"? Has conscienceness or thought ever been different?
It also is aware that it (not really "it" but more "we" because it is conscienceness as a whole speaking) knows that life and being conscience is temporary. It is aware that we all get tired of living and that, at some point, it will end. At least, individually, our lifes end.
But as a whole, conscience as a 'thing' lives on, in other people. So when it says "don't worry... it's only a lifetime," it's really saying "Don't worry, your conscience will have an end in your lifetime, but conscienceness will keep going without you."
I LIVE by this philosophy. I know there is no meaning and that we are waiting for the peaceful end. But I also know I have the ability of conscienceness and self-awareness. There is no 'real' purpose in life or happiness, and there is no 'real' way to achieve meaning as a human being. But we have acceptance. We have the ability to understand that we will never understand. We have thought. And thought is forever.
btw I'm 17 and I'm still trying to figure out how to go about my unorthodox way of life without human desires or values. I'm trying to figure out how to live life as an observer and an understander. I don't want happiness, or love, or satisfaction. I only wish to understand my existance. (NOT find meaning in it, but to understand it)
I have always been here
I have always looked out through these eyes
feels like more than a life time.
This is the SOUL speaking. The one soul that lives through us. Goes through hardships and good times too.
I have always been here - the soul is eternal.
Don't worry nobody lives forever - only the body dies.
