Jesse Malin – In The Modern World lyrics

Marilyn's queen of the scene
In a humble abode, by the bowling green
Marilyn, she collects names
With picture profile, computer games to hang on

In the modern world, pretty boys and girls
We've been hangin' on forever
By the radio with the afterglow
Mama told you, "Now or never"

Vampires out in the sun
Gothic girls, she's the pregnant one
Her Indian paw doesn't work
He's a trust fund straight edge soda jerk, so bang on

In the modern world, pretty boys and girls
We've been hangin' on forever
By the radio with the afterglow
Mama told you, "Now or never"

That's entertainment, she changes her name
And finds liberation in the bathtub rain

The Indians want back the Bronx
Her kid hides his face in a cereal box
Marilyn wants to break free
But lately it's ice cream and bad tv to hang on

In the modern world, pretty boys and girls
We've been hangin' on forever
By the radio with the afterglow
Mama told you, "Now or never"

In the modern world, pretty boys and girls
We've been hangin' on forever
It's so Avant-grade with your Platinum card
But you won't return to sender

A little gender bender
Come on and fuck forever
In the modern world
In the modern world
