"Nobody's Here Anymore"

I find this song to be a good commentary on our brave new world.


Nobody's Here Anymore
J. Fogerty

He got the latest software
He got the latest hardware too
He got the latest gizmo up in his room

He’s feeling so connected
But he don’t talk to a soul
He got a stash of Twinkies up in his room


      Nobody here anymore
      Nobody minding the store
      They’ve all gone to another dimension
      Nobody here any more

She coming round the corner in a SUV
She got the latest cell phone up in her ear
I’m running against the traffic
But she don’t see me

One hand on the cell phone, one hand on the mirror


He’s sitting back of the classroom a million miles away
He’s listening to the rock star on a CD
Up front the old teacher, she’s too tired to snag his mind
He’s looking at the future, she’s looking way behind
