lyrics

Like a fish out of water
Flip flop is your distress song sound the alarm
You are a twenty-first century American man

Found an ocean
Where your pond was
You don't know what to do, no
You throw your voice into the blue hope that it comes back to you
But it don't

You are a twenty-first century American man
You are a twenty-first century man
They gave you pills and violence and sex on demand
You are a twenty-first century man

But China is coming
Rita is running away
The melting pot of molten babble
Don't stay quiet no more

The deserts are boiling
We're shooting at our screens
Spill the blood spill it yeah
The melting pot of broken rabble
Don't stay quiet no more
They don't stay quiet no more

Like a fish
Swim with the school it's majority rules out there
Like a fish
Careful what you say predators become prey
Become prey
You better pray

You are a twenty-first century man
Raised on vitamins yeah
You are an American man
Cue the violins

You are a twenty-first century American man
You are a twenty-first century man
They made you think that the world would cater to your demands
You are a twenty-first century man

But China is coming
Rita is running away
The melting pot of molten babble
Don't stay quiet no more

The deserts are boiling
We're shooting at our screens
Spill the blood spill it yeah
The melting pot of broken rabble
Don't stay quiet no more
They don't stay quiet no more
I won't stay quiet no more
