Cradle To Grave

(Tony Powers)
Cradle to Grave

Beneath the dome
The weather's nice
There are no rainy days
In paradise
The water's clean
The air is clear
And there’s no need to stray
Too far from here
The avenues are straight
And wide
With shopping malls
On either side
'N everybody has a happy face
There are no voices raised
Oh what a perfect place
Everybody have a nice day
Tune in tonight
For more of the same
It's the world we knew
Would be brave
They're watching our lives
Cradle to grave
We video, we microwave,
Just look at all the time we save
We text, we web cam,
And we mobile phone
Nobody's ever left alone
We use remotes from everywhere
There is no need to
Leave our easy chair
We shop at home on our teevees
With all the credit cards
That we are sent for “free”
Everybody have a nice day
Tune in tonight
For more of the same
It's the world we knew
Would be brave
They're watching our lives
Cradle to grave
Everybody wears Cantel
Cotton and wool are gone…
Oh well
And you know what's
Really swell
We don't have to learn to add
We don't have to learn to spell
Cuz everything's computerized
So it should come as
No surprise
Press a key 'n right before
Your eyes
Every question's asked
‘N every answer's realized
