Pulp - Disco 2000! (it's a variant: the future is sweetly melancholy and the future is also the past cause it's ten years since the song was written)

Muse - Thoughts of a Dying Athiest.

Cause I lose faith in the existence of a loving god when I listen to it.

Oh shit, how could I forget REM's rewrite of 'Suzanne', also off of UP: 'Hope'.

It's got it all: science, technology, melancholy, God, reptiles.

You want to go out friday
and you want to go forever
you know that it sounds childish
that you've dreamt of alligators
you hope that we are with you
and you hope you're recognised
you want to go forever
you see it in my eyes
I'm lost in the confusion
and it doesn't seem to matter
you really can't believe it
and you hope it's getting better

you want to trust the doctors
their procedure is the best
but the last try was a failure
and the intern was a mess
and they did the same to Matthew
and he bled till Sunday night
they're saying don't be frightened
but you're weakened by the sight of it
you lock into a pattern
and you know that it's the last ditch
you're trying to see through it
and it doesn't make sense
but they're saying don't be frightened
and they're killing alligators
and they're hog-tied
and accepting of the struggle

you want to trust religion
and you know it's allegory
but the people who are followers
have written their own story
so you look up to the heavens
and you hope that it's a spaceship
and it's something from your childhood
you're thinking don't be FRIGHTENED

YOU want to climb the ladder
you want to SEE forever
you want to go out friday
and you want to go forever
and you want to cross your dna
cross your dna with something REPTILE
and you're questioning the sciences
and questioning religion
you're looking like an idiot
and you no longer care
and you want to bridge the schism
a built-in mechanism to protect you
and you're looking for salvation
and looking for deliverance
you're looking like an idiot
and you no longer care
