All vocals in vocoder!

Love is nothing more than a stain on a dress
Watching things you sold being purchased for less
Euthanasia that's easy to ingest
And they call this making progress

If you take a billion plus a little finesse
And dreamy Yale boys cashing in on their "success"
Then you take a bath in Uncle Sam's treasure chest
That equals making progress

Meanwhile I am drowning in an ocean of stress
Analyzing data for a sure, sure bet
An affordable commodity that I can invest
Your love
Your sweet, sweet love I guess

Baby, baby it would be the best
If we got together tonight and regressed

It's not like we'd be de-evolving
And the world wouldn't stop revolving
We could forget the problems no one's solving
Surely I jest
And you're not listening anyway

Where we go from here baby is anybody's guess
So repress your insecurities and take off that dress
Cause the day we realize no one can clean up this mess
Will be a fine day for making progress

Will be a fine day for making progress

    General CommentVery dark, but as witty as ever.

    Electric Six have a handful of songs that are critical of society:
    "Jimmy Carter", "Future Boys", "Germans in Mexico" and "Making Progress" are just a few. I think they're some of the band's finest songs; they show that Electric Six are no joke. I hope they keep producing songs like these besides their funny ones.
