It's a modern life
But it's not what you're looking for.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)
It's a modern life
But it's not what it's supposed to be.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)

Once the danger was there
But it got tossed from the can.
Too many courts used to carry out the plan.
You try to make a difference
But you're just another man.

It's a modern life
But it's not what you're looking for.
(Woah-oh, what you're looking for.)

(Woah-oh, time to let it go.)

It's a modern life
But it's not what it's supposed to be.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)
It's a modern life
But it looks like it came from a zoo
(Woah-oh, like it came from a zoo.)

You had a different idea
But now you're just out of luck.
You hunt a bargain just to save a buck.
Now you're still on the job
And it looks like you're stuck.

It's a modern life
But it's not what you're looking for.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)
It's a modern life
But it reads better on tv.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)

(Time to pay up, mother fucker.)

It's a modern life
But it's not what it's supposed to be.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)
It's a modern life
But it looks like it came from a zoo
(Woah-oh, like it came from a zoo.)

You had a different idea
But now you're just out of luck.
You hunt a bargain just to save a buck.
Now you're still on the job
And it looks like you're stuck.

It's a modern life
But it's not what you're looking for.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)

(Time to pay up, mother fucker.)

It's a modern life
But it's not what it's supposed to be.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)

(Time to pay up, mother fucker.)

It's a modern life
But it's not what you're looking for.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)
It's a modern life
But it's not what you're looking for.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)
It's a modern life
But it's not what you're looking for.
(Woah-oh, it's a modern life.)
