The Golden Age
Words and Music by Mark Heard
on Mosaics by Mark Heard
Copyright 1985

Intro: A   G D/F# A   G D/F# A   G D/F#

       G G/F# G/E A  G G/F# G/E A

A                           G D/F#
They say this is the Golden Age
A             G D/F#
Video Millennium
A                                G D/F#
Tidings from the self-made media sage
G               G/F#  G/E  A
Tickings of the bi  -  o - bomb

A                          G D/F#
Jet-set etiquette consciousness
A                      G D/F#
Mono-syllabic good-byes
A                         G D/F#
No one cares about no one else
         G           G/F# G/E  A
We’re so used to the capi-tal "I"

    D/F#   G             
The Golden Age (electric Ne - anderthal)
    D/F#   G                  
The Golden Age (the digital mortality)
    D/F#   G                                  C/G    E
The Golden Age, nothing really changes in the Golden Age

A                           G D/F#
They say this is the Golden Age
A                           G D/F#
In which both virtue and flaw
A                       G D/F#
And the entire human element
      G        G/F# G/E A
Are effects of quan-tum laws

A                              G D/F#
Deep in the wells of the centrifuge
A                                G D/F#
The spectrum of the soul is mined
A                              G D/F#
It seems we know ourselves too well
          G    G/F# G/E A
But don’t like what we  find


(Interlude as intro)

A                                 G D/F#
Well, they say this is the Golden Age
A                                   G D/F#
We’ve got tapes of the truth in drag
A                                      G D/F#
We’ve got thermographs of the fires in Hell
    G                 G/F#  G/E A
And renderings of the cos - mic bang

A                         G D/F#
And if this is the Golden Age
A                            G D/F#
Are we no longer human beings?
A                          G D/F#
Are we civilization’s afterbirth?
     G                 G/F#  G/E  A
Some kind of flesh and blood ma - chine


    C      G        C      E
The Golden Age, the Golden Age

(Ending as intro but repeat G G/F# G/E A sequence thrice)
