    Ok, I was listening to the song “20th Century Man” by The Kinks.  I’ve listen to this jingle many a time in the life of Heath’s World.  But now we are getting close to the end and that MIB (Man In Black aka Johnny Locke) is on my mind. 

     I highlight some interesting parts of the lyrics that caught my eye, have a read and tell me what you think :

    20th CENTURY MAN BY THE KINKS (LYRICS)

    This is the age of machinery, A mechanical nightmare , The wonderful world of technology,

    Napalm hydrogen bombs biological warfare,This is the twentieth century, but too much aggravation…It’s the age of insanity, What has become of the green pleasant fields of jerusalem.

    Ain’t got no ambition, I’m just disillusioned  I’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna be here.
    My mama said she can’t understand meShe can’t see my motivation….. Just give me some security, I’m a paranoid schizoid product of the twentieth century.
     
    You keep all your smart modern writers….Give me william shakespeare.  You keep all your smart modern painters I’ll take rembrandt, titian, da vinci and gainsborough,Girl we gotta get out of hereWe gotta find a solutionI’m a twentieth century man but I don’t want to die here.  I was born in a welfare state….Ruled by bureaucracy  Controlled by civil servants And people dressed in grey….Got no privacy got no libertyCos the twentieth century people Took it all away from me.
     
    Don’t wanna get myself shot downBy some trigger happy policeman,   Gotta keep a hold on my sanity….I’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna die here.
    My mama says she can’t understand meShe can’t see my motivationAin’t got no security,I’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna be here.This is the twentieth centuryBut too much aggravationThis is the edge of insanityI’m a twentieth century man but I don’t wanna be here.
