Marillion - Lyrics


Anoraknophobia - Album




This Is The 21st Century


 
(...If you could only see what I've seen with your eyes)



A wise man once said

A flower is only

A sexual organ

Beauty is cruelty

And evolution

A wise man once said

that everything could be explained with mathematics

He had denied

His feminine side

Now where is the wisdom in that?



I came just as fast as I could

Through the dirty air

Of your neighbourhood

Your name on a grain of rice

Hangin' around my neck

And a head like lead



This is the 21st century

I heard everything they said

The Universe demystified

Chemicals for God

This is the 21st century

I heard everything they said



A wise man once wrote

That love is only

An ancient instinct

For reproduction

Natural selection

A wise man once said

That everything could be explained

And it's all in the brain



We lay on a velvet rug

by the open fire

She blew air on my eyelids

I cried "What's it all about?"

As she kissed my hair

She said "There, there.."



"This is the 21st century

I heard everything you said

The universe demystified

Astronomy instead

This is the 21st century

Can't you get it through your head

This aint the way it was meant to be

Magic isn't dead

Come to bed

Come to bed



And rest your heavy head my love.."

And slowly, from above,

She showed the answer's something that can't be written down



This is the 21st century

Flash to crash and burn

Nobody's gonna give you anything

For nothing in return

There's a man up in a mirrored building

And he just bought the world



Would you want

To have kids

Growing up

Into what's left of this?



She shook her head,

She said "Can't you see?

The world is you

The world is me."
