Becoming slaves to the latest craze
Before we've seen it, we're sure we need it
And mail's replacing conversation
Human contact's been in danger
(But look how far we've come)

Falling further back with the latest breakthroughs
Sterilized the way we're communicating
Anonymity to accomplish on PC
What we now can't do for real

Point, click, order now
No need to leave the house
Technology's providing the freedom for us all
To be tethered to the wall

We've started living through posted pictures
And gaining meaning through others feedback
The kids are learning, preparing early,
From what they see, for a life behind machines
(Life behind machines)

Falling further back with the latest breakthroughs
Sterilized the way we're communicating
Anonymity to accomplish on PC
What we now can't do for real

Point, click, order now
No need to leave the house
Technology's providing the freedom for us all
To be tethered to the wall

Even when we're out with friends
There're whole groups with lowered heads
They're hypnotized in fluorescent glow
We're out together, but we're still alone

The past few years we've come so far
Wonder where we'll be in ten or twenty more...
