(...If you could only see what I've seen with your eyes)
A wise man once said A flower is only A sexual organ Beauty is cruelty And evolution A wise man once said that everything could be explained with mathematics He had denied His feminine side Now where is the wisdom in that?
I came just as fast as I could Through the dirty air Of your neighbourhood Your name on a grain of rice Hangin' around my neck And a head like lead
This is the 21st century I heard everything they said The Universe demystified Chemicals for God This is the 21st century I heard everything they said
A wise man once wrote That love is only An ancient instinct For reproduction Natural selection A wise man once said That everything could be explained And it's all in the brain
We lay on a velvet rug by the open fire She blew air on my eyelids I cried "What's it all about?" As she kissed my hair She said "There, there.."
"This is the 21st century I heard everything you said The universe demystified Astronomy instead This is the 21st century Can't you get it through your head This ain't the way it was meant to be Magic isn't dead Come to bed Come to bed
And rest your heavy head my love.." And slowly, from above, She showed the answer's something that can't be written down
This is the 21st century Flash to crash and burn Nobody's gonna give you anything For nothing in return There's a man up in a mirrored building And he just bought the world
Would you want To have kids Growing up Into what's left of this?
She shook her head, She said "Can't you see? The world is you The world is me."
