21st Century Digital Boy

by Bad Religion


/ G# - - - /

I can't believe it, the way you look sometimes

Like a trampled flag on a city street, oh yeah

/ C# E F# A G# /

And I don't want it, the things you're offering me

Symbolized bar code, quick ID, oh yeah


See I'm a 21st century digital boy

I don't know how to read but I've got a lot of toys

My daddy's a lazy middle class intellectual

My mommy's on Valium, so ineffectual

Ain't life a mystery?

/ C# A E F# / : / G# /

I can't explain it, the things you're saying to me

It's going yayayayayayaya, oh yeah


Tried to tell you about no control

But now I really don't know

And then you told me how bad you had to suffer

Is that really all you have to offer?

/ C# A E F# /


Cat's foot, iron claw

Neurosurgeon, scream for more

Innocence raped with napalm fire

Everything I want, I really need.
