Helpless Automated

	  		E5                D5
I stay in my room,
G5        A5
All alone in the gloom,
E5                D5
What need I of light?
G5               A5
Machines they can see in the night,
E5                D5
And I feel no pain
G5           A5
Metal heart and a metal brain,
E5                D5
But something is wrong
       G5                        A5
'cause I still feel that signal coming in so

G    A   /   D    E  /  G    A   /   D    E 


E5                D5
I stand at your door,
G5              A5
I guess I'll wait a moment more
E5                D5
Your hall light comes on
G5                     A5
And now my turn to fire upon
E5                D5
But I wheel away
G5                     A5
Defer my plight, for another day
E5                D5
To dream of your face
      G5           A5
But a video screen takes its place
Em7                 G
Hey, oh it's true
      D                        B              Em7
I'm a helpless automaton, Make an ultimatum to you
              G
Hey, it's true
   D                         B                    F#m
Machin'ry in my pocket, I've even got a docket from you

E      / Em7   /  D    / F#m    / E    / Em7    / D    /
G   A   / D   E  / G   A   / D   E  /   


E5                D5
I went to the man, 
G5            A5
I told him a robot is what I am,
E5                D5
But he just smiled, 
G5              A5
said I was a fractious child
E5                D5
"Distrusted not Rusted" 
G5                 A5
That's why I feel so disgusted
E5                D5
But I know he's wrong, 'cause 
G5                          A5
I haven't felt this way for very long

Em7                 G
Hey, oh it's true
      D                        B              Em7
I'm a helpless automaton, Make an ultimatum to you
              G
Hey, it's true
   D                         B                    F#m
Machin'ry in my pocket, I've even got a docket from you
