Lyrics
:

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

(Come on, come on)

I can't move I can't sit still
Positives and negatives are making me ill
I can't speak but I'm not dumb
I might look like a hero but I feel like a bum

(Come on, come on)

Into the twenty first century
A schizophrenic virtuality
Into 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?
Into the twenty first century

Twenty first century

I saw the best minds of a generation
Dial up destruction with needles and guns
I saw the blue sneakers on the blood stained carpet
The media smiled 'cause it got what it wanted

Into the twenty first century
A schizophrenic virtuality
Into 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?
Into 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 it's 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 

It's a twenty first century
A schizophrenic virtuality
It's a twenty first century
I'm bitter... I'm twisted... I'm cynical me

Into the twenty first century
Twenty first century

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.”
