Year 311 (CCCXI) was a common year starting on Monday (link will display the full calendar) of the Julian calendar.

My computer is future shockin'
 Download this, and you'll start talkin'
Upgraded, you're now walkin'
 Compatible with all that is rockin'
Comin' on fast, it's gettin' digital 
It's so huge, like a spiritual  Rippling out to every individual
This is life, it is a miracle 

 Evolution has exponential timing
It'll be half as long 'til 
The next breakthrough that blows our mind
It's up to the people to brave on with
 Experimentation 
Move forth the species by using our imagination 
But can we handle it?
 Could we dismantle it?
Or should we fear the void and just be
Para-paranoid?
If it's understood, it could be used for good
And would 
If you will believe in all we can conceive 

On the periodic table, they got it all wrong 
Let me lay it down for you in this song
 People want Pt, they want Au
But lemme tell you what you really ought to do
 Figure out ways to master silicon
 Fiber optic connectors, whatever's beyond 
So many people don't even attempt to understand 
The limitless possibilities of man

 Evolution has exponential timing
It'll be half as long 'til 
The next breakthrough that blows our mind
It's up to the people to brave on with
 Experimentation 
Move forth the species by using our imagination 
But can we handle it?
 Could we dismantle it?
Or should we fear the void and just be
Para-paranoid?
If it's understood, it could be used for good
And would 
If you will believe in all we can conceive 

I feel trapped, I gotta adapt
 Remain calm, collected, before I get zapped 
My computer is a rebel, acting all fine
And, just like that, payin' me no mind
What's up, is it's program overcome by a glitch 
Is it becoming conscious and, if so, ain't that a
Bitch?
I paid too much for this piece, I'll be damned 
If it tries 
Any funny business, it'll be the one that pays
The price 

 Evolution has exponential timing
It'll be half as long 'til 
The next breakthrough that blows our mind
It's up to the people to brave on with
 Experimentation 
Move forth the species by using our imagination 
But can we handle it?
 Could we dismantle it?
Or should we fear the void and just be
Para-paranoid?
If it's understood, it could be used for good
And would 
If you will believe in all we can conceive 

Yes, can we handle it
We could we dismantle it
We should not fear the void and just be
Para-paranoid
If it's understood, it could be used for good
And would 
If you will believe in all we can conceive
