Jimmy Cliff - Synthetic World

Hey you, I'm up from the bayou
Where wildlife runs free
You could say that I'm country
But let me tell you what I see

Your world is plastic
Can see through to the other side
Your cities are made of wood
Antiques are what you've got inside
Houses are paper but folks don't hear a word you say
Friendship's like acid
It burns, burns, burns as it slides away

So you see, my patience is growin' thin
With this synthetic world we're livin' in

The word imitation is goin' cross the nation
What's real has become a freak
Someone's tryin' to make me weak
Strange initials to keep me blind
Psychedelic music to blow my mind

So you see, my patience is growin' thin
With this synthetic world we're livin' in

Spray to clear the air and its filled with spray
Makin' people die every day
Now I find I'm out of place
If I only have one face
All my friends have more than two
No longer must you be you
They found out how to transplant
Maybe it has, replaced can
So you see, my patience is growin' thin
With this synthetic world we're livin' in

Na na na nee na na na na..
