Lyrics
:

I used to be a sweet and innocent child
See the world in pictures of black and white
Now its all fading into one big crazy
Twenty-first century attitude

It's not my live that's in question
Standing in between us every time we speak up
It�s the fear of failure
The enemy that penetrates your whole being

(Here it comes now)

It's the twenty-first century
Things ain't what they used to be
It's the twenty-first century
I'm bitter, I'm twisted, I'm cynical me

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want from me?

It's the twenty-first century
Twenty-first century

Some say I've got a lust for glory
But I'm too proud to beg to dirty my knees
Say do you want a piece of the action
But when the bullets fly you're nowhere to be seen

It's the twenty-first century
Things ain't what they used to be
It's the twenty-first century
I'm bitter, I'm twisted, I'm cynical me

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want from me?

It's the twenty-first century

I tell it like it is
I tell it like it should be
The always would be
The way it's going to be from now on

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want from me?

I used to be a sweet and innocent child
See the world in pictures of black and white
Now its all fading into one big crazy
Twenty-first century attitude

It's the twenty-first century
Things ain't what they used to be
It's the twenty-first century
I'm bitter, I'm twisted, I'm cynical me

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want from me?

It's the 21st Century
21st Century

Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?
Is this what you wanted?
Is this what you really want?
