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

Life is an unanswered question
Standing in between us every time we speak
It�s the fear of failure
The enemy that penetrates your whole being

It's the twenty-first century
The schizophrenics taken over me
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)

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

It's the twenty-first century
A schizophrenic virtuality
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)

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

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?

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

(Come on, come on)

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

(Come on)

Mike Peters Notes
:”I was never completely happy with the original lyric of the ’21st’ demo version that appeared on the ‘System’ CD, and so I updated it in the studio during the recording sessions. It has been interesting to release the demo first and allow people into the development of the song. This is something I might try again in the future.”
