    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 aint 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."
