The Industrial Revolution (and How It Ruined My Life) Songtext

Once, long ago
There was a time
In what now seems
A distant land
Each small boutique
Was precious
And unique
'Cause every little thing
Was made by hand
Then there came a revolution
The progress of production
Was its aim
Now instead of one
There are many
And each costs
Just a penny
But every single one looks just the same
Now...
There's...
Starbucks on every bloody corner!


McDonald's o everybody's street
There's White Castle, Wendy's and Walmart
And then it all repeats
If you're the kind that
Looks down on the masses
Even for you theres a fain
Get some new Rock's
Or a pair of Doc's
Put just like those who aint
And that is how
(Tell us how!)
It came to be
(How can it be?!)
After two long centuries
That in the name
(Whats in a name?)
Of Human Greed
The Industrial Revolution
Ruined everything for me
And so now if one does well with the buisiness
They open two more
And then three
They buy in bulk
Get big massive hulks
At which point its nearly free!
As they grow bigger
Their prices get lower
Until they become a chain
Those smaller stores
All shut all their doors
And buckle 'neath the strain
And that is how
(Tell us how!)
It came to be
(How can it be?!)
After two long centuries
That in the name
(Whats in a name?)
Of Human Greed
The Industrial Revolution
Ruined everyone
It came into our lives
And gave us uniformity
By taking choice away
From you and me!
And that is how
(Tell us how!)
It came to be
(How can it be?!)
After two long centuries
That in the name
(Whats in a name?)
Of Human Greed
The Industrial Revolution
"Fixed" everything for every-bloody-gone!
It came into our lives
And gave us uniformity
By taking choice away
From you
(Taking Choice away from me!
Taking choice away
From you and me!
Now the machines are working tirelessly
Through the night and day
Making garbage in our image
For the world thats made our way
They wont stop until every inch
From Peru to Bombay
Looks like a mall in the US of A!
