Automatic  

s-numanme

Automatic

Automatic was an attempt to recapture the success of Sharpe & Numan's collaboration single "Change Your Mind", which reached number 17 in the UK charts in 1985. Although "Change Your Mind" was initially supposed to be a one-off single, Numan recalled that "the whole experience was great fun and Bill and I left the door open for more work together." However, Numan was ambivalent about recording a Sharpe + Numan album: 


“ After the third Sharpe and Numan single we decided to make a Sharpe and Numan album. My dad talked about it as a 'second string to our bow.' I like Bill very much, he is a very gifted writer and player, but I didn't really want a second string to my bow. I was concerned, as I had been from the start with all the collaborations I was 'encouraged' to get involved in, that it would alienate and drive away the few fans I had left. Loyalty could only be stretched so far. ” .


Change Your Mind
Why don't you ever listen?
It's you I'm talking to
This time it's your decision
We're into something new
I know that I'm sinking
Oh any fool can see
Time that I was thinking
Of no-one else but me

Change your mind
Nothing ever stays the same
Change your mind
No-one ever plays the game game game
Change your mind
Give up what you can't defend
Change your mind
Think it up and start again 'gain 'gain

Why can't you reconsider
Listen if you care
Take familiar giver
Reject me if you dare

Give me what I'm asking
And save it all for me
Love that's everlasting
That's how it's meant to be

Change your mind
Nothing ever stays the same
Change your mind
No-one ever plays the game game game
Change your mind
Give up what you can't defend
Change your mind
Think it up and start again 'gain 'gain

Change your mind
Nothing ever stays the same
Change your mind
No-one ever plays the game game game
Change your mind
Give up what you can't defend
Change your mind
Think it up and start again 'gain 'gain 


Turn Off The World
Got to pull it up
Got to pull it out
Got to survive
Got to stay calm
Got to think fast
Don't want to burn
Searching for a door
Searching for a way
Out of this thing
I don't know what's wrong
Don't know what to do
I'm out of control
Nothing I can do
Nothing seems to work
I'm barely alive
Got to slow it down
Got to do something
Or give in
Watching us fall
Trying everything
Fighting for life
Running out of time
I don't have a choice
I'm riding it in

I'm inside and I'm trying to get out
I'm inside and I'm screaming for some help
And everything's gone wrong
I'm listening to the sound of my own fear
I'm listening to the sound of someone's tears
I'm listening to me

This is the fear
This is nothing like
You could believe
Panic in my heart
Like a cold hand
Pulling at strings
I'll do anything
Even pray to God
Just let me out
Turn off the machine
Turn off all the noise
Turn off the world

I'm inside and I'm trying to get out
I'm inside and I'm screaming for some help
And everything's gone wrong
I'm listening to the sound of my own fear
I'm listening to the sound of someone's tears
I'm listening to me

I'm inside and I'm trying to get out
I'm inside and I'm screaming for some help
And everything's gone wrong
I'm listening to the sound of my own fear
I'm listening to the sound of someone's tears
I'm listening to me

You learn fast when everything breaks down
You learn fast when that's all that you can do
You learn fast or nothing 


No More Lies ('89 Mix)
Everything
Everything reminds me
Easily
You walking out so easily
No goodbyes
Not even a tear for me
Now you cry
You'd like to have my company

But I'm not gonna call you again
I'm not gonna pick up the phone
No I'm not going through it again
You're not gonna leave me alone

No more lies
I don't need this anymore
I've heard it all
Now I'm gonna close the door
Seems to me
Nothing comes that easily
Time to leave
You'll take it all and run from me

But I'm not gonna call you again

I'm not gonna pick up the phone
No I'm not going through it again
You're not gonna leave me alone

I'm not gonna call you again
I'm not gonna pick up the phone
No I'm not going through it again
You're not gonna leave me alone

But I'm not gonna call you again
I'm not gonna pick up the phone
No I'm not going through it again
You're not gonna leave me alone

I'm not gonna call you again
I'm not gonna pick up the phone
No I'm not going through it again
You're not gonna leave me alone

But I'm not gonna call you again
I'm not gonna pick up the phone
No I'm not going through it again
You're not gonna leave me alone 


Breathe In Emotion
Something here
Something is cold and you know
To speak now is to lie
Sad mistake
Maybe it's mine but I know
You wake up with strangers
Is this love
If I said goodbye there would be
No-one to listen
I could ask
"How do you feel?" but I know
You breathe in emotion

So goodbye
I can't play anymore
So goodbye
I'm off the friendship line
So goodbye
I'm breathing emotion like some hero
Breathe in emotion

I could cry
"Nothing is wrong" but you know
I don't believe it
I could write
Words on a page but I know
Love doesn't live here
Look at me
Look at my eyes and you'll know
Everything's over
This is me

This is my heart and you know
I breathe in emotion

So goodbye
I can't play anymore
So goodbye
I'm off the friendship line
So goodbye
I'm breathing emotion like some hero
Breathe in emotion

So goodbye
I can't play anymore
So goodbye
I'm off the friendship line
So goodbye
I'm breathing emotion like some hero

So goodbye
I can't play anymore
So goodbye
I'm off the friendship line
So goodbye
I'm breathing emotion like some hero

So goodbye
I can't play anymore
So goodbye
I'm off the friendship line
So goodbye
I'm breathing emotion like some hero 


Some New Game
I've seen them come
I've seen them go
I've seen them all
Call this affection
I've seen them do things
You wouldn't believe
I can't remember your name
I can't remember the time
I can't remember at all
Never again

She wants film
She wants sound
She wants everything
It's not love
In slow motion
It's a strange new game
You've got a picture of me
And I've got a picture of you
But who's got a picture of us?
Never again

Do it once more for the man on the phone
Do it once more for the boys in the band
Do it once more for the girl with no heart
Will you do it once more for me?

She's black
She's white

She could be anything
She looks good
She looks bad
She could tear me apart
Just say goodbye when you leave
And I'll say goodbye when you're gone
We'll say goodbye in the dark
But never again

Do it once more for the man on the phone
Do it once more for the boys in the band
Do it once more for the girl with no heart
Will you do it once more for me?

I've heard your story before
I'll hear your story again
Now I've got a story for you
Never again

Do it once more for the man on the phone
Do it once more for the boys in the band
Do it once more for the girl with no heart
Will you do it once more for me?

Do it once more for the man on the phone
Do it once more for the boys in the band
Do it once more for the girl with no heart
Will you do it once more for me? 


I'm On Automatic

This is metal rhythm
A new song on the Radio
Some new face
A picture on your wall
Talk to me
You say it's nothing personal
But somethings wrong
It's eating me alive
I can't fine the reason
So I can't find the cure

They say nothings's wrong forever
But that somethings wrong with me
Oh I've been down so far
I've never hurt like this

I'm On Automatic
I've heard it all before

Some new flavour
With nothing in the hear
This isn't music
This is survival
But I'm still here
Now isn't that strange
I can't find the reason
So I can't find the cure

They say nothing's wrong forever
But that somethings wrong with me
Oh I've been down so far
I've never hurt like this

They say nothing's wrong forever
But that somethings wrong with me
Oh I've been down so far
Nothing's ever hurt like this 

 


Rip It Up
The new law is moving in
Now you see them now you don't
Like a Shadow in my diguise
Like a soft machine on ice
Who are you?
'I'm the man
I am the cure and disease'
Who am I?
I'm the need
I am the weakness that feeds

I've got to rip it up
I've got to tear it down
I've got to break the word
I've got to fight for you

Who am I to criticise
I'm unsafe at any speed
'We can change the world' she said
Never changed it never tried
I'm cold and hard
But I don't mind
I've been everything I can be 

I've been sick
And I've got he screams
These boys don't know when to push

Did you know that I don't run
Did you know that I don't hide
Did you know that I don't sleep
Did you know that I don't care

I am the soft machine
I am the word and the law
I am the new machine
I am your feelings and more
Come inside and Play with me
I'll show you things to forget
No-one talks
And no-one leaves
No-one remembers the way

I've got to fight the man
I've got to fight the need
I've got to fight the law
I've got to fight the word 


Welcome To Love
I could talk of memories
I could talk of miracles
I can't talk of anything but you
I remember everything
Even how you laughed at me
I remember every word you said

'Love is a game
Love is a game that we play
Love is a game
Love is a game and you lose
Welcome to Love'

Now you're waiting for someone
Waiting for the phone to ring
And I wonder who you're waiting for
There is nothing I can say
There are no good words for this
There is nothing more that I can do

'Lovers are fools
Lovers are foolish in the dark
Lovers are fools
Lovers are foolish and blind
Welcome to Love' 


Voices
I can see in your eyes
(You're) talking good but there's nobody home
And I'm breathing it in
But I'm sure that I've heard it before somewhere
I'm alive with the need
And your welcome to this exhibition 'cos I'm feeding on me
Now there's far to many opinions here

Voices like whispering friends
Voices are calling again
Voices no one can see
Voices are welcome to me

And I've been here once before

I don't know why I'm here
But I'm going to take what I can
I don't know who to fight
I can't run so I'm turning on you again
I think I need a freind
I need someone inside with the news
I think I need to sleep 
Now and maybe forever 



Nightlife
Looking through windows like a T.V. screen
Nothing is ever black and white
A sex film distraction for an armchair stud
He's in love for the night

Looking through windows of expensive cars
This weeks flavour inside
She's working for the company
She's In love for the night

Nightlife
I've seen it all
Nightlife
Like pictures of war

Nightlife
Strangers in bed
Nightlife
Try to forget

Looking through windows like and old peep show
I'm listening to breathing and lies
Don't tell mother or the man next door
Girls in love for the night

Looking through windows at a friend of mine
She's like a knife in my heart
But you can get used to any thing
I'm in love for the night

Love Like A Ghost
I've seen enough of life,
Enough to last a lifetime.
I've seen too many tears,
Far too many tears.

I don't know the answer,
I don't know the question.
So show me something good,
Something to believe in.

[CHORUS:]
Love like a ghost, in the dark.
Love like a ghost, in my heart.

So let's talk of love,
Maybe for the last time.
You will remember me,
I'm the one who died for you.

So she'll take everything,
Everything and nothing.
I can't do anything,
Anything at all.

[repeat chorus to fade]
