Though today you might be riding
The engines of progress
Working in the media factories
Call me if you ever feel like letting go

I still remember the days of
Kid Dynamo,
Kid Dynamo
Kid Dynamo,
Kid Dynamo, Dy-na-mo-owowowowo, wa-ah ow
Wowowowowowo, wa-ah ow

Swimming in the sub-waves
Of the playback from the eight-track
I think your mind was born with water wings
And now when I see you
On the generation screens
I remember the dreams of

Kid Dynamo,
Kid Dynamo,
Kid Dynamo,
Kid Dy-na-mo, Dy-na

Kid Dynamo,
I remember you
Kid Dynamo,
The hours I spent with you
Kid dynamo,
'Cause I invented you

All that we see
How the media builds stars
And our minds will not change
Only our cars

Kid Dynamo,
Kid Dynamo
Kid Dynamo
Kid Dynamo,
Kid Dynamo,
I remember you
Kid Dynamo,
The hours I spent with you
Kid Dynamo,
'Cause I invented you
Kid Dynamo

Kid Dy-na-mo,
Kid Dy-na-mo
Kid Dy-na-mo,
Kid Dy-na-mo

    Kid Dynamo is another song (along with Astroboy and Video Killed the Radio Star), that was inspired by the J G Ballard short-story, The Sound-Sweep.

    The album 'The Age of Plastic', is inspired by the writings of J G Ballard, anxiety in a dysfunctional future is a theme that runs throughout the album.
