Automatic Man

Lyrics | Track Details

He's the latest superhero with powers so profound
He can leap a dotted line in just a single bound
I know you must have seen him in the books and magazines
He's the quintessential mindless modern epicene
His life is meaningful because he gets things done
Bang bang he's dead chalk up another triumph for our hero
The automatic man
It's true you must have met him he's your best friend and your foe
His opinions are determined by the status quo
A true creature of habit, he smokes three packs a day
When he has an original thought he forgets it right away
He's the automatic man
He's a paradigm of carefree living he's our mentor
Disturb him if you can he's the answer if your peace of mind is lacking
He's our savior he is the common man
So if you are troubled by the daily bump and grind
Then take a careful look around and brother you will find...
The automatic man
