Automaton

Album: Automaton (2017)
  • 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)
    Why am I crying for you?

    All this love I felt for you
    Has gone away to another place
    I put my faith in a digital world where they've given me
    Eyes without a face
    I'd steal the moon, on silver nights
    Remind myself I am someone
    My soul is numb 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 that I
    (I need something to believe in)
    But then I'm dying for you

    I said goodbye to the world I knew
    And took off into inner space
    Weren't you the ones who promised me
    A very different place
    I've powered up, get my program set
    And tilt my head toward the sun
    Inside I know, I'm null and void
    (I'm automaton)

    (Automaton, automaton)
    (Automaton, automaton)

    Hey, you got me down underground
    Getting 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
    (Fi-fi-fi-fight it out)
    (Automaton, automaton)
    (Automaton, automaton)

    Feel like a man, who fell to earth
    That 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)
    You know I need something
    I can hold on to
    Hold on to
    You were all I knew
    (I'm automaton)
    I need something
    I can hold on to
    Hold on to
    This was all I knew
