Modern Man

lyrics

I’m a modern man
I’m a rubber band
I got a cross to bear
It’s made up of thin air

I’m a modern man
It all got all out of hand
So I put my conscience down
Six feet under the ground

I’m the one to come for
I’m the one on trial

One of these days I’ll love you right
It’s just my mind is out tonight

You only need one hand
To count my attention span
My mind’s in a slow parade
My eyes in a glassy glaze

Blame it on Kripsy Kreme
Red, White, and TV screen
But I don’t blame anyone
Except my dad’s only son

I’m the one to come for
I’m the one on trial

One of these days I’ll love you right
It’s just my mind is out tonight

I’m the one to come for
I’m the one on trial
I’m the one found wanting
And wasting all the while

One of these days I’ll love you right
It’s just my mind is out tonight
