Written on an Airline Barf Bag
Familiar framework, geometric dwellings
Pie charts, bar graphs, crowded city swelling
Mother kisses scraped knees
Power lines choke trees
Straight ahead pick up the pace
Join us in the rat race
Diet coke and no doz
Watche the epidemic grow
Plug in hide away
Where do you want to go today?
Zymogenic news flash:
"will that be credit card or cash?"
buy this product, fill the hole
that gapes inside, black and cold
give life meaning, feel alive
for three easy payments of 9.95
tv dinners, cell phoens
conspiracy theories: "We're not alone"
megadeath, violence, angst, sex
apathy of generation X
begets a generation: "Why"
watching invisible holes in a dirty sky
so drink up, shoot up
eat up, screw up
can you say escapism?
How about spiritual schism?
Who killed god? Was it science? Was it you?
Did you want that child with brown eyes or blue?
Would you like fries with that too?
Like you and me
Saw the mess that he had made and killed himself
Middle aged porm star arching on the carpet
It's a living sex sells, hey it's a free market
In cyber love with your cyber soul mate
A cyber connection, a golden cyber fate
Staring at the keyboard in a virtual daze
Actual reality is overrated anyway.
It you wont even try
Admit youre wating to die
Now, don't worry dear,
Its not your fault youre here
They can give you Prozac so maybe you can cope
And you can get to sleep at night on medicated hope
Fear not, it's the age of enlightenment the dawn
Of many things for you to waste your whole life on
Do what feels good
Patience is a virtue.
