lyrics

Another day
Nothing new to tell
I'm just going through the motions
Like my mind has been frozen
I am lifeless
I think I might as well have been out cold

I got it wrong
Alright
I've mixed up the pieces of my life, but
I think that I can fix it if I
Open up my eyes
and see the machine that I've become

I've read my final chapter
Seen how it all could end
I'd turn off the world in a heartbeat
For a new beginning

I put myself on automatic
I live my life on automatic
So I don't have to feel
Down and out
And I will never know
What paradise is all about, but
Been getting by on automatic
For far too long

I'm going down
Downhill
Running around now my
Feet have hit the ground
I am caught up
Navigating my desires

I can't deny
I take the easy way out every time
I've tried
But the dream that I've been chasing
It has turned into a lie
When will this start making sense again?

The path of least resistance
Looks good from over here
I've seen the ambush in the distance
But I'll still walk right in

I put myself on automatic
I live my life on automatic
So I don't have to feel
Down and out
And I will never know
What paradise is all about
Been getting by on automatic
For far too long

I put myself on (automatic)
I live my life on (automatic)
I put myself on automatic
I put myself on (automatic)
I live my life on (automatic)
I put myself on automatic
