Time to start this work again Moving out to see the end Back in time to way back then A simpler time for me my friend Playing football in the park Kicking round till it was dark Some nights were long and boring We didn't have much to do I want to go back I need to go back I want to go back I need to go back I want to go back I need to go back I want to go back I need to go back Going to call you up Plug in the phone Leave you a note if you’re not home Ancient world of telephones These simple times Have come and gone Going to call you up Plug in the phone Leave you a note if you’re not home Ancient world of telephones These simple times Have come and gone Did school reports with my mind Jeeves the butler hadn't got online Handwritten letters Shows that someone really cares Last survivor from the analogue age No digital needs to make my day Or be an information source For the CIA I want to go back I need to go back I want to go back I need to go back I want to go back I need to go back I want to go back I need to go back Going to call you up Plug in the phone Leave you a note if you’re not home Ancient world of telephones These simple times Have come and gone Going to call you up Plug in the phone Leave you a note if you’re not home Ancient world of telephones These simple times Have come and gone The big bang in black or white On the council air tonight The satellite didn't control The transfer market overload Flying into the unknown Word of mouth or a salesman's drone Singing high and singing low No levelling out from an auto tone Going to call you up Plug in the phone Leave you a note if you’re not home Ancient world of telephones These simple times Have come and gone Going to call you up Plug in the phone Leave you a note if you’re not home Ancient world of telephones These simple times Have come and gone

What's the secret, we never know Sailing round with a zombie on tow The clown bombed the cafe Must be a Templar conspiracy Conspiracy Conspiracy Conspiracy The curse of the broken metal sword Has totally overtaken me I'll be sent to the asylum Where an evil genius waits for me Fight around the world Historical mysteries Play football in Japan Celery, celery Plymouth won the Euro Cup After five glorious seasons More addictive than drugs It's hard to manage your life One more match One more game Complete the checkpoint and then hit save One more match One more game Complete the checkpoint and then hit save We don't work, we don't work Playing games all day We don't work, it's OK I live on Monkey Island everyday I don't work, I don't work Playing games all day I don't work, it's OK I live on Monkey Island everyday The ref will never catch me William Wallace plotted Stirling Teutonic Knights are solid Until a bowman fires away The old west was barbaric Riding round old Mexico Going to solve this origami Arrest a man on Rodeo Driving around the city Listening to the radio Time to pull out the Uzi and Wait for the police to show Is the robot who controls my mind Playing two characters inside Hooked up to a brainwashing machine In a virtual reality dream One more match One more game Complete the checkpoint and then hit save One more match One more game Complete the checkpoint and then hit save We don't work, we don't work Playing games all day We don't work, it's OK I live on Monkey Island everyday I don't work, I don't work Playing games all day I don't work, it's OK I live on Monkey Island everyday Just one more match Just one more game Complete the checkpoint and then hit save Addiction with anger It will never change We don't work, we don't work Playing games all day We don't work, it's OK I live on Monkey Island everyday I don't work, I don't work Playing games all day I don't work, it's OK I live on Monkey Island everyday

Darkness coming There's a darkness coming There's a darkness coming And it's eating my mind Darkness coming There's a darkness coming There's a darkness coming And it's eating my mind If you’re reading this, you’re infected The virus has got through Not a Trojan horse or spyware Antiseptic won't cure you Mass media support it Like the lies they sell to you The once busy streets lie empty As the landlines fall through Darkness coming There's a darkness coming There's a darkness coming And it's eating my mind This anti-social illness Is now being carried round From Southern Californian loneliness To the palm of your hand BMIs and laziness The world ends in bedroom walls Nature's been rejected but Wind power will save us all Darkness coming There's a darkness coming There's a darkness coming And it's eating my mind Darkness coming There's a darkness coming There's a darkness coming And it's eating my mind

Angry online gaming Is a fun thing to do You’re a noob and I just pwned you but There's things I cannot do Like hold a normal conversation Look a human in the eye The closest thing I've ever done Is get to level sixty nine A little white box With an LCD screen Planned obsolescence In a paranoid dream A little white box With an LCD screen Planned obsolescence In a paranoid dream Cables and connections Tie together my life Maybe one day I'll get to go outside Outside Maybe one day I will go outside and Roam with all the animals but I probably won't because that's quite dangerous Aww I just got an email on my phone So, I better go and check that Ahh I need to play some games Download some apps Check my social skillz So, I’ll BRB playa It's a wonder to always see things fall Than work how you wanted it I'm the Maine man in Oregon now One percent and I love it Innovation is moving so fast It's hard to keep up with anything Knowledge transfer isn't meant to last Computer teachers isolate everything A little white box With an LCD screen Planned obsolescence In a paranoid dream A little white box With an LCD screen Planned obsolescence In a paranoid dream Cables and connections Tie together my life Maybe one day I'll get to go outside Outside Remember the red eye days That the fields didn't provide I can now buy love With extra shoes on the side A shake of the hand As you walk out the door Your pockets have grown big But your social skills Are still in instant messaging LOL BRB What the You’re leaving me LOL BRB What the You’re leaving me LOL BRB What the You’re leaving me LOL BRB What the You’re leaving me Cables and connections Tie together my life Maybe one day I'll get to go outside Outside

Send and receive In the search for love Changing world With half turned off Send and receive In the search for love Changing world With half turned off Let’s look at Deirdre's profile She was in the news today Rolling her car It almost fell into the bay Is she back on it? Or did she hang her head in shame Plug in the computer It's only clicks away Online networking Is that what we call it? Twenty years ago People would abhor it Breaking into a house Look at photo albums Reading your diaries Tracking your position Send and receive In the search for love Changing world With half turned off Send and receive In the search for love Changing world With half turned off Channels are growing Conversation has closed Mouse clicks and keyboards Make the only noise Remember the days When importing was hard Couldn't buy rare CD's Or send custom cards Businesses prosper across the globe Worldwide client base connected at home It's easier to find things Get wiki knowledge A search engine Can now be your personal guide From folding shirts To living life It's not all bad I must be wrong Information is king No need to fill out forms Music distribution is Not the artist's foil We can pay for fans and Sell out Singapore When an angry nerd Loves a girl He'll do anything to find her Like setting up a global network and Getting everyone to try it Millions join his search by Registering on his website Spreading the virus but they don't know The target hasn't subsided As they continue life and fight it Send and receive In the search for love Changing world With half turned off Send and receive In the search for love Changing world With half turned off

Faceless cowards and keyboard warriors We can't escape you, news travels too fast Insomnia nightmare, no sleep tonight Pop-up banners know about my life A generation of anti-socials Typing text from a foot away Medical experts selling us drugs While Government agents monitor play Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder A cynical mind tonight Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder A cynical mind tonight When is stalking normal? When does privacy occur? These are the questions Never asked in the online world The prince has left us money From a foreign land All you need is bank details and A couple hundred grand Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder A cynical mind tonight Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder A cynical mind tonight Wireless children are marketing nodes Propaganda sent through their telephones Easy parenting applications Don't need to be supervised A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind Wire me out, I've given up Connect me to my doom An angry head is making me ill Everyone has followed suit A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind A cynical mind Connected mind Connected mind Connected mind Connected mind Wire me out, I've given up Connect me to my doom An angry head is making me ill Everyone has followed suit Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder A cynical mind tonight Conspiracy theories look over my shoulder A cynical mind tonight

D, D, D, D D, D, D, D Deirdre Van Garcia Berg Ten boyfriends in school wasn't enough Fighting in the playground cause she's so tough Slapping up teachers in the peaceful zone Running away from a broken home Everyone knows a girl called Deirdre Van Garcia Berg D, D, D, D D, D, D, D Drinking cheap cider on a bench in the park Love affairs in bushes with dicks in the dark Roaring down the village and breaking the phone One of those can never be alone Everyone knows a mink called Deirdre Van Garcia Berg Attention in dark rooms, that's what you want All need's a golden eight hour love She likes men in airports with mobile phones Spending all their money on designer clothes Everyone knows a will seeker called Deirdre Van Garcia Berg The eyes of another you can't resist Everyone needs to know you exist The past, present, future will always show That woman with the name that we all know That's the last words about Deirdre Van Garcia Berg

Information is king That's what they say Twenty four hour news everyday That wasn't enough Now I want more The personal life of a media hoor I'll send them messages So they can see How funny and opinionated I can be I want to know everything I want to know everything about you Information overload This monster breaks through I want to know everything I want to know everything about you Information overload This monster breaks through It can't be healthy to fill your mind With pointless information coming from each side My temples hurt and my pulse is racing This data process is taking place in The sanity of my brain has gone Nothing new can be spoke upon It's time to kill this evil virus All I want is perfect silence I don't know anything I don't know anything about you I don't know anything I don't know anything about you I'm the weird one but the monster's killed you

The time has come to reset ourselves A nation turning from hate itself This cultural cancer is going to die But the ashes spread out will always fly A brainwashed child will never change Brought up in life to love to hate A sad reflection of a boring past No answers to guilt just a hollow mask, and Justice can't be done When society is run With an ignorance Not seen by those So young You’re so young Data protection, it's all been said Left a trail behind when I'm dead It's great to be alone now In the past with a clear head Full of life, my eyes awake Walking outside with breath to take Black and white streets await me Discoveries are new, and Justice can't be done When society is run With an ignorance Not seen by those So young You’re so young A single mind A stubborn type An old man moaning about the modern life Be yourself, it’s always best Slay the monster, let it kill the rest We're here for you We're here for you Be yourself, it’s always best Slay the monster, let it kill the rest We're here for you We're here for you Be yourself, it’s always best Slay the monster, let it kill the rest We're here for you We're here for you

I'm up all night on this dark wooden desk Academia deemed me a sorry mess 7am my head lights up the sky The moon's knocked down as my fingers learn to fly Cutting down words is the hardest thing to do The pen and paper won't judge you Broadcasting thoughts on an idiot's journal Is not the smartest thing to do Retiring your mind when the project's done Dreams of nine to five in a brain-dead slum The lifecycle of my soul is a happy one My head's clear now The power's gone It's time to turn the computer off The sea, the sand, the grass, the forest Is where you'll find me now Is where you'll find me now The music artist is an isolated soul The world around him is not his home Craving attention has no style He doesn't care what you think or if he's not worthwhile Record stores close across the land The fruit of death has fallen down Producers of dance are laughing Mr Al Go Rhythm sorts music out But he always wins the long fight Even though he wasn't alright Appreciated only When his guitar strings made no sound My head's clear now The power's gone It's time to turn the computer off The sea, the sand, the grass, the forest Is where you'll find me now Is where you'll find me now My head's clear now The power's gone It's time to turn the computer off The sea, the sand, the grass, the forest Is where you'll find me now Is where you'll find me now The music artist is the biggest hypocrite I know
