21st Century Neanderthal Man

So automatic but everyone’s static
Going down to the underground
Millions of people, fumble and tumble
On the one way merry go round

Where trees once stood and rivers flowed
I see a station and a busy road

You and me were meant to be
Living in perfect harmony
But we do what we want, we take what we can
We are 21st century neanderthal man

Soup and banoffee, 24 hour coffee
It’s all got easily now
What gives you the money, for milk and for honey
We’ll work it out later somehow

My city grows, my country wains
Under dirty streets and noisy express trains

You and me were meant to be
Living in perfect harmony
But we do what we want, we take what we can
We are 21st century neanderthal man

Look at their faces, all blank like head cases
I laugh as I walk right on by
Then I see a mirror and I start to shiver
I see the same look in my eye

I love life, but I can’t find
The missing kindness in mankind

You and me were meant to be
Living in perfect harmony
But we do what we want, we take what we can
We are 21st century neanderthal man
