Worn and tattered, evils of the Western world
Real better, over in America
The weather, so serene and calm
Unseasonably warm

Light a candle for the sufferin' ones
Light a candle for the weak and the small
God damn it, there's a lot of 'em
Kinda think that in the modern world

Holy terror
Asleep when the alarms went off
You're in the mirror
Studyin' your golden locks

I love you
Lets marry when the time is right
Or whenever, you like

Say a prayer for all the people that died
Say another for me once in awhile
I hit rock bottom, I'm gettin' old
I was really hopin' that the modern world...

Happy livin' in a dumpster world
Break out everybody in the jail,
Lets get it on

Let out the wolves
I'm happy livin' in a dumpster world
Bring on the booze
Start it off

We won't be arrested,
For nothin' now
Don't pick up that trash
Put, more of it on the ground

Bust out the drugs
I'm happy livin' in a dumpster world
Everyone in jail
Yeah, lets get it on

Let out all the wolves
I'm happy livin' in a dumpster world
That's mine now
Come and get it on

Bust out the drugs

Light a candle for the sufferin' ones
Light a candle for the weak and the small
Say a prayer for all the people who've gone
There's no hope for any modern world...
