lyrics

Demographic target test
Gonna find out which parts work the best
Build each song brick by brick
Until all of the pieces start to fit
Computer generated scenes
In glossy lifestyle magazines
Furniture for the mind
Has become the perfect waste of time

Throw out the fashion fascists
Destroy the old school and the new
Ignore the luminaries
Remove the skeletons and glue

Brian Wilson in every bedroom
Sgt. Pepper in every garage
Isn't one of each enough
I want someone to prove me wrong
Here comes another Dylan
Here comes a guy who whines and rhymes
Beating on a hip hop corpse
Stone dead since 1985

It's time to bury heroes
The word genius is a lie
Don't let yourself look backwards
The past is not the place to die

Look at all these button pushers
Are they accountants or a band?
Just because no one's singing
Doesn't mean that you are playing jazz
What can you say in twenty minutes
That can't be said in under three
We should be burning records
Instead of burning more CDs
