Grab your calculator
You'll be needing that sooner or later
'Cause I don't think I can work this one out
No I don't think you can work this one out

Walk into the future
You're controlled by your computer
But I think I'm going to sit this one out
Yes you might wish you were no longer about

Consider this your final kiss
'Cause after this we'll slip your disc
Consider this your final piss
Into the wind is where it will drip


They don't care who knows you

And they know when you will be leaving your house
And they also know the reason why you're out

So grab your calculator
You'll be needing that sooner or later
'Cause I don't think I can work this one out
Yes I think I'm going to sit this one out

Consider this your final kiss
'Cause after this we'll slip your disc
Consider this your final piss
'Cause after this you are dismissed

    General CommentThere are some mistakes. I just bought the CD with the lyrics.

    No I don't think you can work this one out >>>>>>>>> ...I can work this one out

    Walk into the future >>>>>>>>> WAR into the future

    Into the wind is where it will drip >>>>>>>>> ...it will drift


    They don't care who knows you
    THIS LINE MISSING >>>>>>>>> It's flipping lid closure

    General CommentThis song is totally a subtle comment about technology's role in the future. Social networking sites, IP addresses, ATMs, other public machines and cell phones are all ways by which surveillance facilitators can keep dibs on anyone that buys into these things, which is everyone. We'll be so reliant on technology in the future (the calculator metaphor) and controlled by the people who make it that we won't know what to make of our situation and won't have anyway out of it because we'll be dependent on everything all around us and everything all around us will be the problem and will be controlling us.

    "Walk into the future
    You're controlled by your computer
    But I think I'm going to sit this one out
    Yes you might wish you were no longer about"

    "They don't care who knows you

    And they know when you will be leaving your house
    And they also know the reason why you're out"

    So grab your calculator
    You'll be needing that sooner or later
    'Cause I don't think I can work this one out
    Yes I think I'm going to sit this one out"

    Mica's saying we're making things really complicated and an end to the growing complications and monopoly of our creations will leave us weaker, more disabled and stuck in the same pattern of unsustainable dependence on all the same things for everything.
