Official music video ‘Brave New World’ by ‘Powerman 5000’ taken from the album ‘The Noble Rot’.

Lyrics:

One day you’ll be savage
One day you’ll get next
One day you’ll untie the lies inside and get some respect
One day you’ll be captain
All hands on the deck
But now the crowd is loud and wanting to grab you by the neck

The future’s unwritten
Good thing we can’t read
You cutting across thinking you’re boss, watching ’em bleed
You getting so empty
With all that you need
Don’t let the animals out and don’t ever doubt they’re ready to feed

Welcome to the brave new world
The same as the old scared world
Welcome to the brave new world
The same as the old scared world

You bank on the system
The system ain’t real
Roll of the dice now just for a slice, yeah man, now fuck how you feel
Now this is a warning
Not only a test
Run for your life, not just for the light, and spray the spray for the pests

The future’s unwritten
Good thing we can’t read
You cutting across thinking you’re boss, watching ’em bleed
You getting so empty
With all that you need
Don’t let the animals out and don’t ever doubt they’re ready to feed

Welcome to the brave new world
The same as the old scared world
The more we change the more we stay the same
Looking for someone new to blame

Everything they said is coming true
Science fiction became science truth
The leaders of the pack will turn around
Digging through the holes of lost and found

You thinking about it but don’t ever shout it now wishing that you were the threat
The future’s a scene but that doesn’t mean that you get to live in it yet
Learn from the past but that never lasts cause fools they rerun it all
Trying to run, gun setting to stun, but they ain’t ready to crawl

Welcome to the brave new world
The same as the old scared world
The more we change the more we stay the same
Looking for someone new to blame
