Hear the sound of music
Drifting in the aisles
Elevator prozac
Stretching on for miles

The music of the future
Will not entertain
It's only meant to repress
And neutralise your brain

Soul gets squeezed out
Edges get blunt
Demographic
Gives what you want

Now the sound of music
Comes in silver pills
Engineered to suit you
Building cheaper thrills

The music of rebellion
Makes you wanna rage
But it's made by millionaires
Who are nearly twice your age

One of the wonders of the world is going down
It's going down I know
It's one of the blunders of the world that no-one cares
No-one cares enough

    Well, this is a very well written n performed song
    it talks abt how music is become so commercial n i dnt have a prob wit comercial music but i do have a prob wit music being abt charts and record companies that get a song promoted to a number1 by 'cheating'
    also, people will believe and like songs bcoz some1 'cool' does
    dis song talk abt everythin rong abt da industry 2day..
    people not thinkn fo themselves intead being manuplated..
    music should b like ti used to be to convey a msg...

    "music that doesnt convey a msg, is just noise"

    "one of the wonders of the world is goin down" - the music industry
    - n isnt he rite wen he says 'blunder dat no1 cares enough'
