Matthew Good lyrics

21st Century Living

(Spoken part)
You know, today I was only asked one question and one question only.
Do you know what it was?
Do you want that supersized?
And come to think of it, I want the whole fuckin’ world supersized.

Supersized guns! Supersized planes.

Supersized satellites. Think about how many more channels you could get with supersized satellites.

Supersized sales. How do you supersize a sale? How about we supersize 3rd world debt relief?

Supersize love. Supersize honesty. Supersize government. Come to think of it, actually nah, lets not supersize the government.

I’d like to supersize death. Supersize death. I’d like a supersize of death with a Coke.

You know what we need? Some back-up singers. How bout a little jingle..

(Sung)
Chorus:
Fake lightning flashes over a skyline.
A deer in your headlights
So gun it, gun it, gun it, gun it, gun it
We’re singing songs about 21st century living
If hates in your heart, man
You’ll take what you’re given

(Spoken again)
..yeah kinda like that, you know? Lets supersize this song! Really, that’s the goal isn’t it? If we can supersize the record and we’ll sell more records, get a supersized record. That is after all ambition.

Ambition. Ambition’s a tricky thing; it’s like riding a unicycle over dental floss tightrope over a wilderness of razor blades. Ambition can backfire. Ambition means more, ambition means faster ambition means better. What if you can super... can you supersize ambition? Does that make you ambitious if you supersize ambition?
Around here, our ambition hurts more than it helps. Around here, ambition throws a non-perishable item in a donation bin at Christmas, then pats itself on the fucking back because it thinks it’s done something decent.
Yeah we’re supersizing ambition. Make no mistake about it.

(Chorus)

Ambition will televise the revolution, and it’ll sell more fuckin’ commercial spots than the Superbowl, the Olympics, the World Series, and the tragedy de jour combined. We’re supersizing. We’re supersizing the record. Because we’re ambitious.

(Chorus)

It’s all right, sooner or later
It’s all right, sooner or later
It’s all right, sooner or later
