21st Century Life Lyrics

When I was a little boy
Living in the last century
I thought about living in the future
Then it occurred to me
I turned around the future was now
The future was all around me
Nothing like I imagined
It was totally confounding

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
Well what can I say?
The new world got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play

Well now I turned on the TV just in time to hear what the Pope said, Pope said
And just a few tiny words later
Somebody wants the man dead
What about famine and disease
Well they said it’s too bad
Because I’m never alone
It’s not just a phone
It’s a stereo

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
What can I say?
The new world got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play

Now I’m not a little boy
I’m in the 21st century
Well you might think we’ve come a really long way, but there’s still no equality
I watched the news on my computer screen
Talking about buying my weed out of a vending machine
You tell me I’m free
But how can it be
When you’re always watching me on the CCTV

21st century life
I got swept away
I got 21,000 things that I got to do today
21st century life
What can I say?
The new world got me feeling so dirty
Think I need to get down and play

21, 21, 21
I’m talking about 21, 21
