21st century (digital boy)


i can't believe it
the way you look sometimes
like a trampled flag on a city street, oh yeah
and i don't want it
the things your offering me
symbolised barcode quick id, oh yeah

cause i'm a 21st century digital boy
i don't know how to live but i got a lot of toys
my daddy's a lazy middle class intellectual
my mommy's on valium, so ineffectual
ain't life a mystery yeah?

i can't explain it
the things your saying to me
its going yayayayayayaya oh yeah

cause i'm a 21st century digital boy
i don't know how to read but i got alot of toys
my daddy's a lazy middle class intellectual
my mommy's on valium, so ineffectual
ain't life a mystery yeah?

tried to tell you about no control
but now i really don't know
and then you told me how bad you had to suffer
is that really all you had to offer?

cause i'm a 21 century digital boy
i don't know how to live but i got alot of toys
my daddy's a lazy middle class intellectual
my mommy's on valium, so ineffectual

cat's foot, iron claw
neuro-surgeons scream for more
innocents raped with napalm fire
everything i want i really need

21st century digital boy

ain't life a mystery, yeah?

infected



now here i go
hope i don't break down
i won't take anything, i don't need anything
don't want to exist, i can't persist
please stop before i do it again
just talk about nothing, let's talk about nothing
let's talk about no one
please talk about no one, someone, anyone

you and me have a disease
you affect me, you infect me
i'm afflicted, you're addicted
you and me, you and me

i'm on the edge
get against the wall
i'm so distracted
i love to strike you
here's my confession
you learned your lesson
stop me before i do it again
just talk about nothing
let's talk about nothing
let's talk about no one
please talk about no one, someone, anyone

you're clear
as a heavy lead curtain want to drill you
like an ocean
we can work it out
i've been running out
now i'm running out-don't be mad about it baby

tou and me, you and me
kneel before you, revile your body
i want to take you, i want to break you
you and me are incurable
i want to bathe you in holy water
you and me, you and me

american jesus



i don't need to be a global citizen
cause i'm blessed by nationality
i'm a member of a growing populace
we enforce our popularity
there are things that seem to pull us under and
there are things that drag us down,
but there's a power and a vital presence
that's lurking all around

we've got the American Jesus
see him on the interstate
we've got the American Jesus
he helped build the president's estate

i feel sorry for the earth's population
cause so few live in the u.s.a
at least the foreigners can copy our morality
they can visit but they cannot stay
only precious few can garner our prosperity
it makes us walk with renewed confidence
we've got a place to go when we die
and the architect resides right here

we've got the american jesus
bolstering national faith
we've got the american jesus
overwhelming millions every day

he's the farmers barren fields
he's the force the army wields
he's the expression on the faces of the starving millions
the power of the damned
he's the fuel that drives the klan
he's the motive and the conscience of the murderer
he's the preacher on tv
he's the false sincerity
he's the form letter that's written by the big computer
he's the nuclear bombs
he's the kids with no moms
and i'm fearful that he's inside me

we've got the american jesus
see him on the interstate
we've got the american jesus
exercising his authority
we've got the american jesus
bolstering National faith
we've got the american jesus
overwhelming millions every day

one nation under god

you



there's a place where everyone can be happy
it's the most beautiful place in the whole fuckin' world
it's made of candy canes and planes
and bright, red choo choo trains
and the meanest little boys
the most innocent little girls
and you know, i wish that i could go there
it's a road that i have not found
and i wish you the best of luck, dear,
drop a card or letter to my side of town

cause there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend
but baby i'm amazed at the hate that you can send
and you
painted my entire world
but i
don't have the turpentine to clean what you have soiled
and i won't forget it

there's a place where everyone can be right
even though you remain determined to be opposed
admittance requires no qualifications
it's where everyone has been and where everybody goes
so please try not to be impatient
for we all hate standing in line
and when the farm is good and bought
you'll be there without a thought
and eternity my friend, is a long fuckin' time

cause there's no time for fussing and fighting my friend
but baby i'm amazed at the hate that you can send
and you
painted my entire world
but i
don't have the turpentine to clean what you have soiled
and i won't forget it

sanity

there's a watch in my pocket and its hands are broken
the face is blank but the gears are turning
confusion is a fundamental state of mind
it doesn't really matter what i'm figuring out
i'm guaranteed to wind up in a state of doubt
and sanity is a full-time job
in a world that is always changing
and sanity is a state of mind that you believe in
sanity

there's a shadow on the wall where the paint is peeling
my body's moving forward but my mind is reeling
depression is a fundamental state of being
it doesn't really matter how my day has turned out
i always end up living in this world of doubt

and sanity is a full-time job
in a world that is always changing
and sanity is a state of mind that you believe in
sanity

sorrow



father can you hear me?
how have i let you down?
i curse the day that i was born
and all the sorrow in this world

let me take you to the herding ground
where all good men are trampled down
just to settle a bet that could not be won
between a pridefull father and his son

will you guide me now, for i cant see
a reason for the suffering and this long misery
what if every living soul could be upright and strong

well, then i do imagine...
there will be sorrow
yeah there will be sorrow
and there will be sorrow no more

when all soldiers lay there weapons down
or when all kings and all queens relinquish their crowns
or when the only true messiah rescues us from ourselves

Its easy to imagine
there will be sorrow
yeah there will be sorrow
and there will be sorrow no more

yeah there will be sorrow
and there will be sorrow no more

punk rock song



have you been to the desert?
have you walked with the dead?
there's a hundred thousand children being killed for their bread
and the figures don't lie they speak of human disease
but we do what we want and we think what we please

have you lived the experience?
have you witnessed the plague?
people making babies sometimes just to escape
in this land of competition mine compassion is gone
yet we ignore the needy and we keep pushing on
keep pushing on

this is just a punk rock song
written for the people who can see something's wrong
like ants in a colony we do our share
but there's so many other fuckin' insects out there
and this is just a punk rock song

have you visited the quagmire?
have you swam in the shit?
the party conventions and the real politics
the faces always different, the rhetoric the same
but we swallow it all, and we see nothing change
nothing has changed...

this is just a punk rock song
written for the people who can see something's wrong
like workers in a factory we do our share
but there's so many other fuckin' robots out there
and this is just a punk rock song

10 million dollars on a losing campaign
20 million starving and writhing in pain
big strong people unwilling to give
small in vision and perspective
one in five kids below the poverty line
one population runnin' out of time
runnin' out of time

this is just a punk rock song
written for the people who can see something's wrong
like ants in a colony we do our share
but there's so many other fuckin' insects out there
and this is just a punk rock song

sienctis making human disease
well we do what we whant and we take who we pleace
one in five kids below the poverty line
one population runnin' out of time
this is just a punk rock song

the empire strikes first



we strike first
and we're unrehearsed
here we go again
to stage the greatest show on heaven and earth
come on, get your money's worth

don't wanna live
don't wanna be
e-m-p-i-r-e

we're comin on fast
and we're built to last
we struggled once in nam
now we're glad to finally say
those days have passed
tell me how long can it last!

don't wanna live
don't wanna give
don't wanna be
e-m-p-i-r-e
don't wanna live
don't wanna be
e-m-p-i-r-e

we just started out
you don't need to be afraid
yeah you deserve two minutes hate

well, we split and we cursed and our bleeding hearts burst
but even ten million souls
marching in february couldn't stop the worst,
couldn't reverse

don't wanna live
don't wanna give
don't wanna be
e-m-p-i-r-e
don't wanna live
don't wanna be
e-m-p-i-r-e

i can't live
if it isn't with you

i want to conquer the world



hey brother christian with your high and mighty errand
your actions speak so loud i can't hear a word you're saying
hey sister bleeding heart with all of your compassion
your labours soothe the hurt but can't aswage temptation

hey man of science with your perfect rules of measure
can you improve this place with the data that you gather?
hey mother mercy can your loins bear fruit forever?
is your fecundity a trammel or a treasure?

and i wanna conquer the world
give all the idiots a brand new religion
put an end to poverty, uncleanliness, and toil
promote equality in all of my decisions
with a quick wink of the eye, and a
"god you must be joking!"

hey mister diplomat with your worldly aspirations
did you see your children cry when you left them at the station?
hey moral soldier, you've got righteous proclamations
and precious tomes to fuel your pulpy conflagrations

and i wanna conquer the world
give all the idiots a brand new religion
put an end to poverty, uncleanliness, and toil
promote equality in all of my decisions

i want to conquer the world
expose the culprits and feed them to the children
do away with air pollution and then i'll save the whales
we'll have peace on earth and global communion!

i wanna conquer the world
