The Way We Live Now

One Guitar, slow, melancholy

Alas poor theater I knew it well
forget about the arts funding
it's never coming back

Band Comes in fast, loud, angry

Chorus
Welcome to the new world order
where science and math reign supreme
welcome to the way we live now
forget about the way it used to be

you have some imagination there boy
don't worry we'll soon take care of that
by giving you things to memorize
and discouraging all independent thought

chorus
Welcome to the new world order
where science and math reign supreme
welcome to the way we live now
forget about the way it used to be


forget about your history books
we don't care about the past now
and we don't think about the future
we're living only for today now

put down that paintbrush now boy
you'll never paint again
forget about Picasso and Van Gogh
I don't even know who they are

Chorus
Welcome to the new world order
where science and math reign supreme
welcome to the way we live now
forget about the way it used to be

Forget about Romeo and Juliet
Forget about Midsummer Night's Dream
I've never even heard of them
and we'll never preform them again

Welcome to the way things are now
Forget about the way things were
Don't ever try and change them
No body cares anymore

welcome to the new world order
where Math and Science reign supreme
welcome to the way we live now
isn't this the way you want to be
