lyrics

Welcome to the future
2019
Better find them a
Nice soft place to land right?
‘Cause they sound high
Pseudo-psychics
Pseudo-skeptics
Pseudo-mystics
It’s all pseudo
It's all pseudo
I'm pseudo-fed-up

I want tomorrow to be better than yesterday
That’s why I’m all about technology
So if you say “slow it down!”
I’ll say fast forward
And if you want the benefits
But not the process then you’re hypocrites
Everybody’s wish list is
For new toys and tools and better medicines
And you can have this wish
Just ask the methodological naturalists
And if your spouse gets sick
Consult professionals never novices
Deep down you all know this
Jay-Z thanks I had to borrow this
To make sure tomorrow is
A bit more hospitable to common sense

Whatever scientists can discover
You want that
When it’s justice and life or death
You want facts
But when you feel threatened by science
It’s all bad
And you can’t bring the future back

Mysticism and pseudo-science
We off that
Placebo effects and magic
Are off track
Religion and superstition
We off that
‘Cause you can’t bring the future back

Tell them fools get off me!
Fraud we off that
Quacks we off that
Chiropractic?
Hell yeah, we off that
Is you still on that?
You're better of crackin' a packet of bubble wrap

It ain’t black vs white; it ain’t east vs west
It’s about the scientific method against myths
It’s colour-blind justice and double-blind tests
So you can’t make claims if you lack evidence
You say “It suits me best”
But you haven’t ruled out those placebo effects
And yeah it’s been tested
Prayer doesn’t work against illnesses
And neither does a sugar pill
Nobody gets cancer from a windmill
Chill! Just like the Hawaiians
Ask 'em about GMO papayas
I'm with Mark Lynas, protect the environment
Give it the best of biotech sciences
Manure is organic, but we leave it behind us
Look in the future to find us

Whatever scientists can discover
You want that
When it’s justice and life or death
You want facts
But when you feel threatened by science
It’s all bad
And you can’t bring the future back

Mysticism and pseudo-science
We off that
Placebo effects and magic
Are off track
Religion and superstition
We off that
‘Cause you can’t bring the future back

Tell them fools get off me!
Fraud we off that
Ghosts we off that
God we off that
Yeah, we off that
Is you still on that?
You better take a message
He's not gonna call back

I don’t give a measle how your beliefs go
Get a vaccine or don't come around people
Unless you got a medical reason exemption
Those are the people that need your protection
Get the shot! Not the suspension
Of homeopathic alternative medicine
I don't give a chakra if it's holistic
I just want evidence-based statistics
Eradicate diseases
Don't give 'em back to the faith-healers
And I don’t give a shroom if you hallucinate
Just don’t try to make any truthful claims
Unless you can show us the proof we crave
‘Cause no aliens ever flew my way
So now it’s time to relax
Your mind and learn a couple science facts

Whatever scientists can discover
You want that
When it’s justice and life or death
You want facts
But when you feel threatened by science
It’s all bad
And you can’t bring the future back

Mysticism and pseudo-science
We off that
Placebo effects and magic
Are off track
Religion and superstition
We off that
‘Cause you can’t bring the future back

Tell them fools get off me!
Astrology we off that
Reiki we off that
Naturopathics?
Hell yeah, we off that
Is you still on that?
Test every treatment
And see where they fall flat

Test every treatment
And see where they fall flat
