Lying in my bed the thoughts are running through my head
These pills ain't working and I'm wishing I was dead
It's afternoon and the kids are home from school
When I was young I thought that I'd be nobody's fool

The summer of '76 was hot we spent the whole day drinking
Listening to the Pistols and Ramones that's when I got to thinking
I got a guitar and I started up a band
Just another teenage waste, just another punk rock band
Wake up, check it out, this is now, the 21st century
Things never turned out how you planned, like they were meant to be
Wake up, take a look, this is your, 21st century
Everything is pay up on demand, in front of your TV

Out of luck and out of work, I went and spent the giro drinking
Bills ain't getting paid no more and I know this ship is sinking
For what it's worth, I know I let you down
I'm hanging on the best I can, like a dog about to drown
Wake up, check it out, this is now, the 21st century
Things never turned out how you planned, like they were meant to be
Wake up, take a look, this is your, 21st century
Everything is pay up on demand, in front of your TV

Times have changed but the song plays the same
and we all play our part in this mad masquerade
These are the times, these are the times of our lives
These are the times of our lives, these are the times of our lives
These are the times of our lives
