lyrics

Everybody wants a big house in the burbs
Everybody wants to lie on a Caribbean beach
Everybody wants a big flat screen TV
Everybody wants to drive an SUV

Nobody ever wants to count the cost
Nobody thinks about what's been lost
Nobody wants to hear the sirens of doom
Nobody wants to see the planet's wounds

And we don't ask why, only wanna know how
The future's got no place in the dictatorship of now

Big Image, Big Ego, Big Dreams
Polish up your life make it shine on the screen
Big Data, Big Oil, Big Lies
Party on while the wheel of progress slides (into the ditch)

And we don't ask why, only wanna know how
The future's got no place in the dictatorship of now

And we don't ask why, only wanna know how
The children got no hope in the dictatorship of now

Everybody thinks they should have it all
