All the creatures
On the beaches
Making waves in a motion picture
Won't you keep this
In between us
Search and seizure, wake up Venus

The dollar bill will
Mentally ill bill
Mum and dad take your 'don't be sad' pill
Turn the screw and
Twist my language
Don't forsake me I'm contagious

There's a reason for the twenty first century
Not too sure but I know that it's meant to be
And that it's meant to be

Come on, wooh
It's my favorite
Combination
Coming down with the favored nations
Deep rotation
Mutilation
Learn to give and take dictation

Oh, oh oh, oh oh
Like a Cain and Abel
Oh, oh oh, oh oh
It's time to run this table

There's a reason for the twenty first century
Not too sure but I know that it's meant to be
And that it's meant to be

Come on, yeah

Read me your scripture and 
Read me your scripture
Read me your scripture and I will twist it

Show me your wrist and I
Show me your wrist and
Show me your wrist and I'll kiss it, kiss it

Oh, oh oh, oh oh
Like a Cain and Abel
Oh, oh oh, oh oh
It's time to run this table

Simple soldier
Hand it over
Stop and read what you just wrote her
Strangulation
Altercation
Oral sex and bird migration

There's a reason for the twenty first century
Not too sure but I know that it's meant to be
And that it's meant to be, come on

There's a reason for the twenty first century
Not too sure but I know that it's meant to be
And that it's meant to be
