Lyrics:

You take your happy pill
Now you know you're having the time of your life
You follow what they give still you want more
You can still make it to paradise?
Living for the next best thing
It's gonna be hot and you want it
If you aim high you'll surely win
'Cause it's now or it's never

We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?
Before we've begun we've arrived
Instant famous now we're satisfied
It's so 1984 and we just can't get enough
We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?

You haven't quite figured it out
But you're certain black is white so they all say
You believe all the hype you have no doubt
Having it all will come your way
You can have your guns and toys
If it gives you something to do
You can make a lot of noise
'Cause it doesn't really matter

We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?
Before we've begun we've arrived
Instant famous now we're satisfied
It's so 1984 and we just can't get enough
We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?

They're watching you, watching me,
Watching everything disappear.
Watching me, watching you,
You will learn to love the fear

We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?
We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?


We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?
Before we've begun we've arrived
Instant famous now we're satisfied
It's so 1984 and we just can't get enough
We're having the time of our lives
Who can blame us in this modern life?
