Essere o dover essere – il dubbio amletico
Contemporaneo come l’uomo del neolitico
Nella tua gabbia due per tre mettiti comodo
Intellettuali nei caffè, internettologi

Soci onorari al gruppo dei selfisti anonimi
L’intelligenza è démodé
Risposte facili, dilemmi inutili

Ah-ah-ah… cercasi (Cerca, sì)
Storie dal gran finale
Sperasi (Spera, sì)
Comunque vada, panta rei
And singing in the rain

Lezioni di Nirvana, c’è il Buddha in fila indiana
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria
La folla grida un mantra, l’evoluzione inciampa
La scimmia nuda balla

Occidentali’s Karma
Occidentali’s Karma
La scimmia nuda balla
Occidentali’s Karma

Piovono gocce di Chanel su corpi asettici
Mettiti in salvo dall’odore dei tuoi simili
Tutti tuttologi col web
Coca dei popoli, oppio dei poveri

Ah-ah-ah… cercasi (cerca sì)
Umanità virtuale
Sex appeal (sex appeal)
Comunque vada, panta rei
And singing in the rain

Lezioni di Nirvana, c’è il Buddha in fila indiana
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria
La folla grida un mantra, l’evoluzione inciampa
La scimmia nuda balla

Occidentali’s Karma
Occidentali’s Karma
La scimmia nuda balla
Occidentali’s Karma

Quando la vita si distrae cadono gli uomini
Occidentali’s Karma, ah…
Occidentali’s Karma, ah…
La scimmia si rialza, ah…
Namasté Alé

Lezioni di Nirvana, c’è il Buddha in fila indiana
Per tutti un’ora d’aria, di gloria
La folla grida un mantra, l’evoluzione inciampa
La scimmia nuda balla

Occidentali’s Karma
Occidentali’s Karma
La scimmia nuda balla
Occidentali’s Karma
