IM ON AUTOMATIC INFO

The new single for 1989 had a great disco feel to it, and yet again it had no promo video, but Gary and Bill did the round of radio stations as well as play the song live for the Club X TV show. This programme also featured a piece on Gary and his fans. I'm On Automatic got to No 44 in the UK charts 

IM ON AUTOMATIC LYRICS

I'm On Automatic 
(Single from 'Automatic' album, 1989)

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 something's wrong
It's eating me alive

I can't find the reason
So I can't find the cure

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

I'm on automatic
I've heard it all before
Some new flavour
With nothing in the heart

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 something's wrong with me
Oh I've never been down so far
I've never been hurt like this

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

No More Lies 
(Single, from 'Automatic' album, 1988)

Everything, everything reminds me
Easily, you're walking out so easily
No goodbye's
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 heard it all
And now I'm gonna close the door
Seems to me
Nothing comes that easily
Time to leave
You 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

(Written by Sharpe / Numan) 


Love Like A Ghost 
(B-side, 'I'm On Automatic' single, 1989)

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 answers
I don't know the questions
So show me something good
Something to believe in

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 won't 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

Love like a ghost
In the dark
Love like a ghost
In my heart


(Written by Sharpe / Numan) 


Voices 
(B-side, 'No More Lies' single, 1988)

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 you
Welcome to this exhibition
'Cos I'm feeding on me
And there's far too 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 friend
I need someone inside with the news
I think I need to sleep
Now and maybe forever
