Paroles :

Look what you’re doing to me
I’m utterly at your whim
All of my defenses downYour camera looks through me
With its X-ray vision
And all systems run agroundAll I can manage to push from my lips
Is a stream of absurdities
Every word I intended to speak
Winds up locked in the circuitry
No way to control it
It’s totally automatic
Whenever you’re around
I’m walking blindfolded
Completely automatic
All of my systems are down
Down, down, down
Automatic (automatic)
Automatic (automatic)
What is this madness
That makes my motor run
And my legs too weak to standI go from sadness
To exhilaration
Like a robot at your commandMy hands perspire and shake like a leaf
Up and down goes my temperature
I summon doctors to get some relief
But they tell me there is no cure
They tell me
No way to control it
It’s totally automatic
Whenever you’re around
I’m walking blindfolded
Completely automatic
All of my systems are down
Down, down, down
Automatic (automatic)
Automatic (automatic)Automatic
Automatic
Automatic
AutomaticLook what you’re doing to me
I’m utterly at your whim
All of my defenses downYour camera looks through me
With its X-ray vision
And all systems run agroundAll I can manage to push from my lips
Is a stream of absurdities
Every word I intended to speak
Winds up locked in the circuitry
No way to control it
It’s totally automatic
Whenever you’re around
I’m walking blindfolded
Completely automatic
All of my systems are down
Down, down, downNo way to control it
It’s totally automatic
Whenever you’re around
I’m walking blindfolded
Completely automatic
All of my systems are down
Down, down, downNo way to control it
It’s totally automatic
