who knew
who knew
our life would be so complicated
who knew
that we would be so automated
no time to think on the brink who knew

who knew
not me, not you or anyone else
come to think of it, it's true
we're misinformed and always warned
to look out who knew

be ready to fabricate and navigate
your personal fate
you've got to articulate, tolerate
and circulate
rearrange and change your thing
just to accommodate
go there, be back, turn around,
go back, hurry up, then wait, don't be late who knew

i got yours, you got mine
hurry up, there ain't no time
exhilarate sometime this year

too much of this, not enough of that,
dislocated is where we're at
sign of the time is here who knew

oh my, just a sigh of relief
there's too much grief in this life
too much strive you've got
to compete or turn a new leaf or die
the reason why

when you go around uptown
you can't be looking down
wordy rise be wise
give you a joke on the wall
you recognize
tranquilize i compromise with you

blank stairs everywhere
don't look mad, who cares
who knew

(...)

too much of this, not enough of that,
dislocated is where we're at
sign of the time is here who knew

who knew our life would be so complicated
that we would be so automated
no time to think who knew
