21st Century Failure (single)

by The Prefab Messiahs



Pandemics rage! Economies totter! Political systems rot! — and the environment circles the drain...

What better time for The Prefab Messiahs to set it all up, lay it all out, and burn it all down? "21st Century Failure" is a take-no-prisoners anthem tailor-made for those socially isolated moments when only a ranting, post-punk-psych-garage-pop-rave up will do!

The track was performed SAFELY and RESPONSIBLY in three separate SOCIALLY ISOLATED LOCALES by Xeerox Feinberg, Doc Michaud, and Trip Thompson.


Gotta new smartphone but you’re all alone
(It's a 21st Century failure)

Gotta lot of skills that don’t pay the bills
(It's a 21st Century failure)

Got your feelings hurt by a kid’s T-shirt
(It's a 21st Century failure)

Try to compromise while the oceans rise
(It's a 21st Century failure)

... Boo, Boo Hoo Hoo...

Got a dating app, treats you like a sap
(It's a 21st Century failure)

Give it up for free, your identity
(It's a 21st Century failure)

Get a new disease when you hear a sneeze
(It's a 21st Century failure)

Trusted all the crooks — now the earth is cooked
(It's a 21st Century failure)
