lyrics

The events of yesterday,
Are described in an offhand way,
And these, the men of destiny,
Echo heroic versions of the past.

In Japan an automaton claims a victim!

And they're shaken but not stirred,
As if they never heard,
The World described in pictures,
Real life is just a scream away,
Put your hopes and dreams away,
Stay at home, the ideal drone,
And watch real life and death,
And be shaken not stirred.
I live in the world of cages,
Mutants prowl the streets,
I haven't left my room in ages,
Thermo-static keeps it nice and warm.

In Japan an automaton claims a victim!

And they're shaken but not stirred,
As if they never heard,
The World described in pictures,
Real life is just a scream away.
Put your hopes and dreams away,
Stay at home, the ideal drone,
And watch real life and death,
And be shaken but not stirred.
