20th Century Man Lyrics

This is the age of machinery,A mechanical nightmare,The wonderful world of technology,Napalm hydrogen bombs biological warfare,This is the twentieth century,But too much aggravationIt’s the age of insanity,What has become of the green pleasant fields of jerusalem.Ain’t got no ambition, I’m just disillusionedI’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna be here.My mama said she can’t understand meShe can’t see my motivationJust give me some security,I’m a paranoid schizoid product of the twentieth century.You keep all your smart modern writersGive me william shakespeareYou keep all your smart modern paintersI’ll take rembrandt, titian, da vinci and gainsborough,Girl we gotta get out of hereWe gotta find a solutionI’m a twentieth century man but I don’t want to die here.I was born in a welfare stateRuled by bureaucracyControlled by civil servantsAnd people dressed in greyGot no privacy got no libertyCos the twentieth century peopleTook it all away from me.Don’t wanna get myself shot downBy some trigger happy policeman,Gotta keep a hold on my sanityI’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna die here.My mama says she can’t understand meShe can’t see my motivationAin’t got no security,I’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna be here.This is the twentieth centuryBut too much aggravationThis is the edge of insanityI’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna be here.
