"Automatic" as written by Patrick Benzner, Dave Roth, Tom Kaulitz, Bill Kaulitz and David Jost....
Automatic
Automatic
You're automatic,
And your hearts like an engine.
I die with every beat
You're automatic,
And your voice is electric.
No do I still believe?

It's automatic
Everywhere in your letter
A lie that makes me bleed
It's automatic
When you say things get better
But they never

There's no real love in you.
There's no real love in you.
There's no real love in you.
Why do I keep loving you?

It's automatic,
Counting cars on a crossroad
They come and go like you
It's automatic,
Watching faces I don't know
Erase the face of you

It's automatic
Systematic
So traumatic
You're automatic

There's no real love in you.
There's no real love in you.
There's no real love in you.
Why do I keep loving you?

Automatic
Automatic
Automatic
Automatic

Each step you make
Each breath you take
Your heart. Your soul.
Remote-controlled
This life is so sick
You're automatic to me

Love in you
Love in you
There's no real love in you.
There's no real love in you.

There's no real love in you.
There's no real love in you.
There's no real love in you.
Why do I keep loving you?

Automatic
There's no real
Automatic
Love in you
Automatic
Why do I
Automatic
Keep loving you?
Automatic

    My InterpretationWell...aside from the first comment ^_^ ... ... ...

    My first impression of this song was that it was indeed of an emotionless human. If you need a hint, the lines:

    It's automatic,
    watching faces I don't know
    Erase the face of you.

    It seems though as if other people influence who this song is directed to( who bill is speaking to)
    but they don't seem to care how they are affected by others. They might have been different in the past (erase the face of you).

    this leaves the teller of this story heartbroken yet still attached (why do i keep loving you?)


    well....anyway,


    GREAT SONG!!! I got chills when i first heard it, considering it sounded like tokio hotel almost went SCENE on us all D:

    idk im only a teenager from the school of the arts.


    have a nice day ppl

    General CommentI think this song is about someone with automatic feelings toward someone. So the person is just so sick of having an automatic relationship and so they just want to brake it off.

    General CommentIt's weird for me because it's like the song is talking about me because this is what a boy I know is accusing me of. o.o Kinda trippy. Didn't think I could relate to this.

    General CommentFirst off, not what I expected from TH, but I really liked the song when I first heard it. You really have to listen to get the chorus right though. Bill is basically saying that someone clearly is emotionless, robotic, and that he knows he's wasting his time with whoever. You really have to watch the video to get the full impact of lyric and meaning. Bill's amazing with his vocals in this piece.

    My InterpretationI love this song, it's been my favourite song for about 6 months now.

    Well, to me, this is what it means:

    You can keep on loving someone, no matter what. It's automatic loving them ... you just can't remember doing anything except that. And they don't even love you back, but you keep on loving them, and you just don't know why. You can try anything to forget them, but in the end, your heart always go back to them. And you don't even want to love them anymore, but that's all you have.

    This is from personal experience. My favourite part is the last chorus and the outro ... they just sound so desperate, like there's nothing left inside you except loving them. You've become automatic. <3
