I’m automaton


Am I love

Every heart is beating

I’m all love

Can’t you feel me feeling

Take my hand

Cold like a junkie

I’m an ice cold man

I’m an ice cold man

Why am I crying for you


All this love

I felt for you

Has gone away to another place

It’s a digital life

I put my faith

In a digital world, buy they’ve given me

Eyes without a face

I steal the moon

On summer nights

Remind myself I am someone

My soul is null and void tonight

I’m automaton


I’m so tough

Can’t you see me running

See I can touch

Can you feel me coming

I see the world

And cry for freedom

These metal eyes they can’t disguise

The fact I

Need something to believe in

But they’re not crying for you


I said goodbye

To the world I knew

And took off into inner space

It’s a digital life

Weren’t you the ones

Who promised me

A very different place

I power up

Get my program set

And tilt my head towards the sun

Inside I know

I’m null and void

I’m automaton

Automaton

Automaton

Automaton

Automaton


Hey you got me down underground

Gettin holed up in my cyber lounge

As if I had time to break that down


Automaton


Whatever you can do I can override it

Got a million ways to synthesize it

Digital android I can fight it

Fight it out


Automaton


It’s a digital life

Automaton

Digital life

Automaton

Digital life

Automaton


Feel like the man who fell to earth

But this is not where I belong

They rule my life from a metal box

That’s windowless

And I wonder

Where it all goes wrong

Maybe this dream will stay alive

But can the madness be undone

Am I the new intelligence


I’m automaton

I’m automaton

I’m automaton

I’m automaton

I’m automaton

I’m automaton

I’m automaton

It’s a digital life

It’s a digital life


You know I need something

I can hold onto

Hold onto

You were all I knew


I’m automaton


I need something

I can hold onto

Hold onto


You were all I knew


I’m automaton
