21st Century

This song is by Poster Children and appears on the album RTFM (1997).

Watching television in an electronic prison
Waiting for the darkness to fall
Homegrown terrorism, one nation in division
And the talk shows are to blame for it all

The ATF and FBI make preparations to invade
The bill of rights disintegrates because freedom just gets in the way

The crime rate is alarming, the citizens are arming
Against uncommon enemies
A fourth world revolution, invisible pollution
In the 21st Century
21st Century
In the 21st Century
In the 21st Century

The homeless were a nuisance to the five o'clock commuters
So they were erased from the streets
Apocalyptic rumors are consumed by the consumers
There's a new disease every week

The nightly news has no more room for truth inside the narrowcast
The markets slip, a panic hits as a fever spreads across the land

Genetic engineering, one step from ethnic cleansing
Copyright your DNA
Moral indiscretions, unnatural selection
In the 21st Century

Watch the politicians as they jockey for position
In the endless race of the rats
All the kids are listening to some junky musician
As the empire shows signs of collapse

The upper crust, the one percent have run off with all the cash
Don't pay the bills, forget the rent, it's the beginning of the end

The book of revelations, the cult of information
The power of prophecy
You don't need a crystal ball to track the rise and fall
Of the 21st Century
21st Century
In the 21st Century
In the 21st Century
In the 21st Century
In the 21st Century
I'm the 21st Century
I'm the 21st Century
I'm the 21st Century
