LYRICS

Your world confined to your screens

In a techno-media Aviary

For distraction junkies

To play Celebrity

To be a sham is respectable

And Reason unfair

‘Cos there’s no time to think

When if you blink you’ll be left behind

Trust in the

Lust dealers

Choose your demise

You’re everything

You’re nothing

Generation of me

Your fickle worship of youth

And disposability

Keeps substance & truth

From killing the party

But as our plastic Mandala’s pile

Ever useless, ever higher

This self portrait is all we will leave behind

Trust in the

Lust dealers

Choose your demise

You’re everything

You’re nothing

Generation of me
