This ain't rock and roll! Ladies and Gentlemen... Go beyond the boundaries laid by Elvis Go beyond the recipes of Clash Usurp those strolling criminals of excess Take the techno out of pop (and make it into rock) See the weary traveller of Blade Runner And introduce an element of thrash Mix the bleeding ceremonies of power March it coast to coast for one night stands 21st century teenager gets more for it's money 21st century teenager likes acid with it's ice 21st century teenager takes lessons how to fly 21st century teenager likes politics to fly Angel came from heaven just to bring the mighty wah Shake some awesome doodah in for spice Build a citadel of TV tube and video Ship the underground to the mainstream (the crossover) I'll use this for religion if you don't mind I need one badly & this one's right here The open air cathedral of the media has come Let's marvel at the megatomic bomb 21st century teenager gets more for it's money 21st century teenager likes acid with it's ice 21st century teenager takes lessons how to fly 21st century teenager likes politics to fly It's the state of the art alright...
