"Technophobia" as written by and Peter Thomas Steele....
You fear change and all that is new
Stand in the way of progress
Like primitive man afraid of fire
Till the explored it's many uses
The power of the atom at our disposal
Yet it called unsafe
Nuclear energy so clean and pure
Your ignorance is a disgrace
Do not resist
It is your destiny
Have wr not all became
The children of technology
Holding fate in a magnetic grip
Of all your irrational fears
The shadow of machinery cast upon the flesh
Blood swent and gears
The robots of dawn offsprings of industry
Stop you in the cobalt blue light
One fell swoop and you've become a memory
Away with your intrusive life
Into the reactor!
You worship a deadman hung with nails
Only a fool would die for the sins of humanity
On your knees before electronics
Lets replace this religious insanity
Tear down the chures instead of thetrounds
Build there the holy reactors
Give us the children science and math
In place of bibles and pastors
You bleeding heart liberals
Who oppose the nuclear regulatory commission
Must be completed to retire
You serve only as obstacles and should be used
To fuel the nuclear pyre

    General CommentTechnophobia is the fear or dislike of advanced technology or complex devices, especially computers. The term is generally used in the sense of an irrational fear, but others contend fears are justified. It is the opposite of technophilia. First receiving widespread notice during the Industrial Revolution, technophobia has been observed to affect various demographics throughout the world. This has caused some groups to take stances against some modern technological developments in order to preserve their ideologies. In some of these cases, the new technologies conflict with established beliefs, such as personal values in simplicity and modest lifestyles. A number of examples of technophobic ideas can be found in multiple forms of art, ranging from literary works such as Frankenstein to classic films like "Metropolis". Many of these works portray the darker side of technology as seen by the technophobic. As technologies become increasingly complex and difficult to understand, people are more likely to harbor anxieties relating to their use of modern technologies

    Instead of an apply to jump forward into technological evolution, in which way this song can be readd,
    I think Peter Steele was warning tht human will be completely put aside for the advance of technology.
