Automatic

lyrics

Administration of the dose
was made as early light
was showing on the western side
but the window was too small

There she stood her halo gold
lit by the incandescent bulb
and still the water fell revolved
hallucinogenic, fierce, and cold

The whiteness of the walls
made morning seem more bold
and through his sleep he saw
delivery begin once more

Chorus

Automatic was the response
automatic was the defence
automatic was the rate
how beautiful the sad mistake

The waking of the waiting crowd
was stumbling through the cloud
evaporating, dried like dust
and then, all emotion lost

Repeat chorus
