lyrics

with their hollow eyes
and their faces white
they walk in line
they move on.
they move on.

In their empty lives
with their vacant smiles
in their suits and ties,
they move on.
they move on.

They move on, (automatons, automatons)
never really knowing who they are
they move on
they move on
step by step,
day by day,
one by one.

one step leads to another,
one foot in front of the other.
one step leads to another
until one mind is controlling the other

one step leads to another,
one foot in front of the other.
one step leads to another
until one mind is controlling the other

They move on, (automatons, automatons)
never really knowing who they are
they move on
they move on
step by step,
day by day,
one by one.

They broke up in 2010 a year after losing Plattsmier to suicide. Bassist Ronan Bradley played for the last year of the group. ... more
