You’re getting sick of storing memories in binary code
You let your body do the talking, put your head in the phone
So when the Internet’s down your brain’s an empty cup because
You put yourself on Facebook; didn’t back yourself up

You live another life, a brand new way to exist
In which you’re always keeping track of all the shit you think you missed
We sit and suffer as anxiety invades our lives, one day
These buzzing little minds are gonna turn into a hive

If you throw up your hands and say it’s gone too far
The world will go on; you’ll stay the same as you are
A scowl will creep across your face as you fossilize
Unless you shed your skin and metamorphisize… you’ll never realize

These are crazy times, if you don’t lock yourself inside
You gotta open up your mind, we’re gonna ride this tide
Don’t go so fast past your prime, you gotta take it all in stride
You gotta shift your paradigm if you gon’ ride this tide

One day a change will show up huffin’ and a puffin’ at your door
It’s gonna bust right in and knock you flat on the floor
Unless you give into the wind and let it take you where it will
You gon’ get stranded in your head, alone with cynicism still

You gotta find a filter that will suit your taste
So you can still find beauty when the past goes to waste
Revolution’s never pretty, even when you win
Somebody’s gotta do the dishes after every party ends

In a few orbits more, we’ll find the world has changed,
obsolescence shaking up the minds we carefully arranged
So try to hold on tight to what means most to you
But if it fades away, don’t let it kill you too, just start anew, ‘cos

These are crazy times, if you don’t lock yourself inside
You gotta open up your mind, we’re gonna ride this tide
Don’t go so fast past your prime, you gotta take it all in stride
You gotta shift your paradigm if you gon’ ride this tide
