Oil in the blood, wires under the skin
Cold metal pieces where bones should have been
Can't make love, with with all that woe
Numb to the touch with every single dose you take

Automaton, tick tock tick tock
Automaton, tick tock tick
Automaton, tick tock tick tock
Come on, you know you're better than this

Lost to the blue til you're found by the fix
That shiny blister pack of mind-numbing hits
Turning your screws winding up your gears
Pushing you through without a single tear

Automaton, tick tock tick tock
Automaton, tick tock tick
Automaton, tick tock tick tock
Come on, you know you're better than this

You're a lying machine
Lying to yourself
As you smoke up a screen
For everybody else
And now he's trying to love you
But you're not human enough to

Automaton, tick tock tick tock
Automaton, tick tock tick
Automaton, tick tock tick tock
Come on, you know you're better than this
