Future's So Bright, I Gotta Wear Shades
Timbuk 3

I study nuclear science
I love my classes
I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doing all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades

I've got a job waiting for my graduation
Fifty thou a year -- buys a lot of beer
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doing all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades

Well I'm heavenly blessed and worldly wise
I'm a peeping-tom techie with x-ray eyes
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doing all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades

I study nuclear science
I love my classes
I got a crazy teacher, he wears dark glasses
Things are going great, and they're only getting better
I'm doing all right, getting good grades
The future's so bright, I gotta wear shades
I gotta wear shades, I gotta wear shades

    It's an interesting example of mass media's use of subliminal messages to inculcate the youth of the day into the desired societal type necessary to further the profit goals of the military industrial complex. The song includes, 1. The myth that college leads to employment 2. What to study 3. How much you can anticipate making after graduation 4. And a vague allusion to internet security. And, the old-school robot type one-lens sunglasses they sing about... You do know they wern't talking about ray-bans, right... Where did they go in all this 80's revivalism?
