Lyrics

I was a pilot of the future
Reading my Sci-Fi magazines
Shiny new tomorrow
Gleaming bright on our TV screens
We were so excited with the better world to come
I could hardly wait to reach Century 21

They promised me life of ease
Food pills, little jet cars
Hi-tech homes, pleasure domes
Robot servants - holidays on Mars

It seemed like I kept getting older
But the future still looked the same
On every TV series,
B-movie and computer game
We were oh so certain we'd be citizens of space
Banishing disease to make the world a better place

They promised me life of ease
Food pills, little jet cars
Hi-tech homes, pleasure domes
Robot servants - holidays on Mars

Now I'm on minimum wages
In the pound store check-out line
All we got was Teflon
Texting and porn online
Never made the better world they planned for me and you
Remember when we had a dream, thought it could come true

They promised me life of ease
Food pills, little jet cars
Hi-tech homes, pleasure domes
Robot servants - holidays on Mars

Whatever happened to holidays on Mars
I want, I want, I want holidays on Mars
I want, I want, I want holidays on Mars
I want, I want, I want holidays on Mars....
