Verse I:

 F                Dflat  
I've got nothing to say, 
I've got nothing to do,

 F		   Gsharp       
all of my neurons are functioning smoothly

   Dflat   		  Eflat    F  
yet still I'm a cyborg just like you.

 F		      Dflat
I'm one big myoma that thinks, 
my planet supports only me,

 F			    Gsharp
I've got this one big problem will I live forever?

    Dflat            Eflat     f
I've got just a short time to see.

Chorus:

 F   Gsharp   Eflat     F-Eflat-F 
Modern man - evolutionary betrayer, 
modern man - ecosystem destroyer,
Modern man - destroy yourself in shame, 

 F   Gsharp   Dflat              Eflat
modern man - pathetic example of earth's organic heritage.

verse II(same as above):

When I look back and think, when I ponder and ask "why?"
I see my ancestors spend with careless abandon assuming eternal supply

So there it is.  The solos aren't quite right, I don't think, but they 
should be pretty close. Enjoy. --Geoff.
