Challenge For A Civilized Society

 

Data

Generations information paralyzed by movie lies
False alarm false alarm false alarm false alarm
No solution to the pollution, useless data bores the masses
False alarm false alarm false alarm false alarm
Obsolete ideas meet humans need for fantasy
False alarm false alarm false alarm false alarm
Information generations paralyzed by movie lies
No solution to the pollution, useless data bores the masses
Obsolete ideas meet human need for fantasy

Laugh Track

You should have gone to the doctor, you have too many things to offer
You could have listened to yourself talk as if you're someone else
Laugh track inside your head
Laugh track inside your head
Laugh track inside your head
Running out of jokes for the audience
Running out of jokes
You have no one to drive you home, you can't stand it to be alone
There's only voices inside your head to keep you company while in bed
Laugh track inside of your head
Laugh track inside of your head
Laugh track
It's no wonder that you're not laughing with them but you scoff
At the notion of a life without interaction, there's no doubt
Laugh track behind your back
Laugh track behind your back
Running out of jokes for the audience
Running out of jokes
Running out of jokes for the audience
Running out of jokes

Meet The Plastics

Meet the plastics, they just arrived! I'm ecstatic to be alive
It's my pleasure to ignore the lovely people at my door
Carbon copies -- you always know when they are around
Instant replay -- I'm never going to play again
Meet the plastics, out your window, causing trouble on TV
It's my pleasure to ignore the lovely people at my door
Carbon copies -- you always know when they are around
Instant replay -- I'm never going to play again
Meet the plastics, they're fantastic! They came to town and fooled around
It's my pleasure to ignore the lonely people at my door
Carbon copies -- you always know when they're around
Instant replay -- I'm never going to play again

The World Is Flat

He was dethroned, severely disowned, he battled the king and lost everything
"I don't know if I really want to try finding out just why
I don't know if I ever want to buy answers that are lies"
He spent most of his youth faced with the truth -- trying too hard, thinking out loud
"I don't know if I really want to try finding out just why
I don't know if I ever want to buy answers that are lies"
And once removed, he connects the past alphabetically (in parenthesis)
"I don't know if I really want to try finding out just why
I wish life could be just as nice to me as it's meant to be"

Side Effects Of Being Tired

When I hold my breath, your lungs collapse
In a dream perhaps on one of those days
When I hold my tongue it all comes back in a hated way
If I said the words, I could sleep now, are these the words?
Her magistrate will concentrate in attempts to show no signs of hate
When I hold my breath, your lungs collapse
In a dream perhaps on one of those days
When I hold my tongue it all comes back in a hated way
If I said the words, could I sleep now, didn't I say the words?
Her magistrate will concentrate in attempts to show no signs of hate

Lifetime Achievement Award

We want to you to receive a trophy on TV
In recognition of your excellence
And now the time has come for all the audience
who don't know who you are, to wish they did
And we regret to say, it is indeed a shame
That while you were around, no one noticed
We want to you to receive a trophy on TV
In recognition of your excellence
And now the time has come for all the audience
who don't know who you are, to wish they did
And we regret to say, it is indeed a shame
That while you were around, no one noticed

What Went Wrong

He appeared in the kitchen and the group was saying
"She comes with high regard and she gets what she wants"
Take your sweet time, you've taken so long
To make up your mind, it might take your whole life
The motive was not clear, though they knew it would appear
That they were in the wrong, if he had not taken so long...
He endorsed the notion, but they would not hear of it
"A lack of common sense is where we are concerned"
Take your sweet time, you've taken so long
To make up your mind, it might take your whole life
