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

[Chorus]
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

[Chorus]

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

[Chorus]

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
