You got dumped Now you're pumped Cause you're on the rebound You’re stressin’ And you’re fessin’ Bout a message to be found And it makes a lot of sense when we look behind you Now you’re hoping that Whateverworld will find you Have a ball At the mall You can bring your parents The downtown clone store’s having a clearance Dig it here Grab a chair While we form a committee now we’re never ever ever going back to this city Suck it up Grab a cup At the burger king yeah And it’s hittin’ While you’re sittin’ And it’s just the thing yeah Give it up Live it up Now you’re putting your feet down There’s somebody out there getting a beatdown You’re afraid that the city is gonna break you And you’re hoping that Whateverworld will take you

Modern Rock 03:17
Modern Rock is just a preset Modern rock is a disease Do you wanna take the jazz school down tonight? No diploma / no degrees Modern Rockin’ wi-fi airwaves Modern Rockin’ on the phone Too many bills for the thrills in 2012 Gonna make it on our own Today they got inside your head And they told you rock and roll was dead But you’ve always been a pissed off kid And you’re always regretting the things you did And while I can’t say it all in a middle 8 The best sounds in the world are completely fake And I don’t listen to the chills or the clean And think this place just ain’t my scene because Modern is automatic Modern rock will set you free Do you wanna let your jets cool down tonight? No baby boomer fantasies Modern Rock is up all night Modern Rockin’ on a dime No hooks for the crooks in 2012 Modern Rock another time

Last night I had the strangest dream Electric candy in the TV screen But take it with a grain of salt Unleash The Free TV Revolt And we would have two sides it seems Castle and Beckett on the tv screens It is my thing / it’s all my fault Unleash the free TV revolt You took a shot you did your best You’re failing on the TV test It’s not my thing / it’s not my fault Unleash The Free TV Revolt

Took a trip to the Pleasure Planet and forgot to fall in love Woke up with haggard eyes and I cursed the stars above Last thing I remember was seeing clones take off their clothes And the smell of synthetic pheromones across my shirt n’ right up my nose And I wanna be sick and I wanna get high and the van and the smoke and the flashing lights / I dunno What a horrible night to have a curse, I woke up on earth The shopping is great and you’ll stay up late for what it’s worth It was voted the squarest place in space, it’s full of dicks But it pays to be member of the human race on the couch with a stupid look on my face I just wanna go out and get some kicks I’ll be last in line or I’ll get there quick / whatever We could listen to songs about LSD on LSD We could watch a show about TV on MTV You can see ‘em checking out real estate in Slumcity ‘cause you know the future has gotta be A vague and complicated memory Where we don’t get sick / and nobody dies And the hits are the shit / and you’re up all night Rappin’ along to a new kind of alien beat Out in the sun it’s the one / now you’re out on the street Because the constellations never lied And the sun is a star in someone else’s eyes

Aftertouch 03:41
You know that I've been infatuated with you for so long Thought the feeling was gone by now but it just came back so strong Human love is a pack of lies and I don't know what to do Well I guess that I'm pretty high so I'll lie and think of you aftertouch aftertouch aftertouch aftertouch And the lights of the hover-cars through the window touch the walls And the parallel lines of ultraviolet rise and fall Like the beat of your plastic heart in the dark when I’m touching you And I know I won’t be fine but I'll lie and say it's true aftertouch aftertouch aftertouch aftertouch

Sweatshop 03:48
I was staying up real late playing mass effect while the city slept Feeling fly on the codeine high well it was no sweat I got no regrets Then I saw my face reflected in the light of the plasma screen This was the year that we grew up well this must be 2013 Foxconn, foxconn Take me back to Foxconn Foxconn, foxconn Take me back to Foxconn Sweatshop Think we’ll make it in the sweatshop We won’t fake it in the sweatshop Yup we’ll take it to the sweatshop Next stop If you’re thinking you’re a hotshot Then we’ll take it to the sweatshop We won’t make it in the sweatshop The silicon Valley Girls will let you in when they’re in line It’s a grande Frappucino world and they got dreams, and they got time Got time to work it out takin’ selfies in the parking lot And the minute they check their phones they’re electrified by the future shock Foxconn, foxconn Take me back to Foxconn Foxconn, foxconn Take me back to Foxconn Sweatshop Think we’ll make it in the sweatshop We won’t fake it in the sweatshop Yup we’ll take it to the sweatshop Next stop If you’re thinking you’re a hotshot Then we’ll take it to the sweatshop We won’t make it in the sweatshop All the shi-shi quinoa clones well they were reading Atlas Shrugged And they all went it alone but now they’re reading Eat Pray Love The millennials grow up and they all get jobs at the NSA And their wiretaps run hot when all the shi-shi webcats say Foxconn, foxconn Take me back to Foxconn Foxconn, foxconn Take me back to Foxconn

Parallax 02:38
We set the scene And then we act Ten thousand things In parallax We go to sleep We take a nap And then we dream In parallax We set the scene And then we act Ten thousand things In parallax We go to lunch We get a snack And then we dream In Parallax

Free Wifi 04:01
There's an innocence in times that we remember There's a freedom when you see the morning light Don't you know that you and me will live forever All because we're on the Free WiFi tonight

Oh Yeah 04:01
Peep the beat beneath the astroturf A journey to the centre of the earth The instrumental thing is how you see That this is just the place for you and me Uh huh Uh huh Uh huh Oh yeah Well people tell you that’s the way it is How that is just the nature of the biz We step into a wave of frozen light And that is all we need to do tonight Uh huh Uh huh Uh huh Oh yeah
