Bad Religion 21st Century (Digital Boy) Lyrics

Last updated: 03/31/2010 11:00:00 AM

I can't believe it, the way you look sometimes
Like a trampled flag on a city street, oh yeah
And I don't want it, the things you're offering me
Symbolized bar code, quick ID, oh yeah

See I'm a 21st century digital boy
I don't know how to read but I've got a lot of toys
My daddy's a lazy middle class intellectual
My mommy's on Valium, so ineffectual
Ain't life a mystery?

I can't explain it, the things you're saying to me
It's going yayayayayayaya, oh yeah


Tried to tell you about no control
But now I really don't know
And then you told me how bad you had to suffer
Is that really all you have to offer?


Cat's foot, iron claw
Neurosurgeon, scream for more
Innocence raped with napalm fire
Everything I want, I really need.

[fade out]
21st century schizoid boy
21st century video boy
21st century digital boy...

Sadly those lyrics are true.
I go to a school in Germany that is similiar to the American high school.
And 70% of all our students habe problems with our language - not to mention their English skills.
But they all know how to use a f*cking iPhone.
The youth today is so dumb and uninterested...they live to use Facebook and chat the whole day. They are all empty drones. I don't want to be like them. And I think in exactly the same way Bad Religion does.
Sadly I'm one of a few.

Thkis song has a lot of potential to be the best song of the year relativally soon. I would really recommend this song to the people who like bad religion!

I'm pretty much the ultimate bad religion fan. The lyrics are the most influential and thought provoking lyrics out there. This song definitely doesn't let the listener down in that regard...not to mention the vocals and drumming are fabu. For another great song listen to atomic garden...drums are out of this world.
