Revival

Before I’ve charged my wi-fi up

Before my lip’s been curled

Before I sup the devil’s cup

I see Tomorrow’s World

 

Tomorrow’s World is nice and rank

Tomorrow’s World is nauseous

The nurses crowd the breakfast bank

(For lots of different causes)

 

My cabinet is filled with drones

Though most of them malfunction

They’re made of plastic skin and bones

But greased by no compunction

 

Tomorrow’s World is cold and tense

A place where all is pure

Where my bionic moral sense

Is stable and secure

 

Stable and secure

Stable and secure

Stable and secure

Stable and secure       bdoing bdoing

 

Here are my bionic fingers

Here are my bionic thumbs

The smell of soldering still lingers

When sniffing my bionic chums

 

You cannot kill my kind of creeps

With crucifix or garlic

Their mouths emit a stream of beeps

And all their souls are Dalek
