    Alice is a drag queen
    Bowie somewhere in between
    Other bands are looking mean
    Me, I'm trying to stay clean
    I don't dig the radio
    I hate what the charts pick
    Rock and roll may not be dead, but it's getting sick
    All over the world, disc jockeys talk insane
    Every town I play, it's like I wonder why I came

    The Rolling Stones are trillionaires
    The flower children pallbearers
    Beatles said "All You Need is Love"
    And then they broke up
    River took an overdose
    Kurt followed so close
    The whole music scene and all the bands are pretty comatose
    This time last year, people didn't want to hear
    They looked at Jesus from afar
    They say He's a superstar

    Dear John
    Who's more popular now?
    'cause I've been listening to Paul's records,
    and I think he really is dead

    It's 1994
    Teen spirit has become a bore
    Who's in power now?
    I think I'll turn on the TV
    Man on the news says Japan is gonna beat us
    We shot all our dreamers, and there's no one left to lead us
    We need a solution
    We need salvation
    So they sent some people to the moon to gather information

    They brought back a big back of rocks
    It only cost 13 million buckaroos
    Must be some really nice rocks

    You think it's such a sad thing when you see a fallen king
    Then you find out they are only princes to begin with
    Everybody has to choose whether they will win or lose
    Follow God or sing the blues
    And who they're gonna sin with
    What's the mess the world is in?
    I wonder who began it
    Don't ask me
    I'm only visiting the planet

    This world is not my home
    I'm just passing on through
