  1. Techno Pop

From the album On My Way

"Your scientists were so preoccupied with whether or not they could that they didn't stop to think if they should." Name that movie. (The song was written a decade earlier, but the quote fits perfectly.)

Lyrics

We created the killer bees
We coined the nuclear waste
Technological advances, if you please
We're living in a world so full of haste

We're taking a privilege and we call it our right
You break down what someone else will mend
Is this how you want life?
And you say No, no, no, not quite
Well, then, just do the techno pop
and you can always pretend

Machine so much faster so much better
Never you mind what she cost
My friend, you'll get ahead if you can get her
But if you can't, my friend, you're truly lost

We're taking a privilege and we call it our right
You break down what someone else will mend
Is this how you want life?
And you say No, no, no, not quite
Well, then, just do the techno pop
and you can always pretend

Now we change the face, nose, and chest
To artificiality so many surrender
Now there's nothing wrong with looking your best,
but now we go and alter the gender!

She is he and he is her instead
Someone like this simply can't be sane
The surgery needed deals with the wrong head
The cutting should be done on the one with the brain!

Is this how you want life?
And you say, No

Ahead of the times is the past-time now
We toy with power like a children's game
Seeming to forget the last time, how
The loaded gun had nowhere to aim...

We're taking a privilege and we call it our right
You break down what someone else will mend
Is this how you want life?
And you say No, no, no, not quite
Well, then, just do the techno pop
and you can always pretend
