Fitter, Happier

Somebody made an animated clip of Fitter Happier, Radiohead song from OK Computer: I admit I never really paid full attention to particular album, except for the more popular songs such as the Paranoid Android, Karma Police, until now.
A sample of the lyrics:
Fitter, happier, more productive,
not drinking too much,
regular exercise at the gym
(3 days a week),
getting on better with your associate employee contemporaries ,
at ease,
eating well
(no more microwave dinners and saturated fats),
a patient better driver,
a safer car
(baby smiling in back seat),
sleeping well
(no bad dreams),

Okay, fine. Those are hardly "lyrics", but really a collection of various guidelines of leading a better life (thus the title Fitter Better),presented through the symbolic robotic chanting, accompanied by moody repetitive piano sounds. Ah, we've all became robots following a buncha instructions.

Kinda reminds me of the "Choose Life" chant from the movie Trainspotting. Yeah, Choose Life, Choose a job. Choose a career. You heard that one before I guessed.
