A wise man once said a flower is only
A sexual organ, beauty is cruelty and evolution
A wise man once said that everything
Could be explained with mathematics

He had denied his feminine side
Now where is the wisdom in that?

I came just as fast as I could
Through the dirty air of your neighborhood
Your name on a grain of rice
Hanging around my neck and a head like lead

This is the 21st century, I heard everything they said
The universe demystified, chemicals for God
This is the 21st century

A wise man once wrote that love is only
A primal instinct for reproduction, natural selection
A wise man once said that everything
Could be explained and it's all in the brain

This is the 21st century, I heard everything you said
The universe demystified, astronomy instead
This is the 21st century, can't you get it through your head?
This ain't the way it was meant to be, magic isn't dead
Come to bed, come to bed

Rest your heavy head, my love
And slowly from above she showed
The answer's something that can't be written down

This is the 21st century, flash to crash and burn
But nobody's gonna give you anything for nothing in return
There's a man up in a mirrored building and he just bought the world
Would you want your own kids growing up into what's left of this?

She shook her head, she said
Can't you see the world is you, the world is me?
