"Autopilot" is the ninth track on Death to False Metal.

Overview

"Autopilot" was initially worked on with Rick Rubin for the sessions for 2008's Weezer (aka "The Red Album"). The song was first known to fans upon the album's release via the insert for the album, which features scans of handwritten notes made during the creation of the album. "Autopilot" was one of the titles written in the notes that did not appear on the album. Despite the song not making the album, one member of the band notes that they "Love it!!!"

The song recieved further work in 2009 or 2010 with producer Shawn Everett. This version was later released on 2010's Death to False Metal.

Lyrics

When I wake at the break of the morning
I ingest my two fried eggs
If a grain of the salt is missing
Then I go to the store and beg

Autopilot, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah
I've got to get off the autopilot
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah
It's pissin' me off

When I walk to the park with my doggies
I collect all the things they leave
Then I put them up under the microscope
And I'm so impressed by what I see

Autopilot, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah
I've got to get off the autopilot
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah
It's pissin' me off

There is passion in my heartache
Though I'm trained to stay in this state, this state
Ain't no matter how hard I try, I try
I will be here until I die, I die

10 INPUT "What is your name?"
20 PRINT "Hello"
30 REM
40 INPUT "How much cash do you want?"
50 FOR I = 1 TO N
60 PRINT S$ & REM
70 INPUT "go to the end"
80 IF (A$ = "be my friend") THEN PRINT
"Bad Command"

Autopilot, whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah
I've got to get off the autopilot
Whoa-oh-oh-oh-oh, yeah-yeah
It's pissin' me off
The autopilot
The autopilot
The autopilot
The autopilot
