Modern girls always have to go (you were right)
Old-fashioned men always want a mistress(right on time)
Modern girls always get their way (you were right)
Modern men dream of what they can't say (i was wrong)
That's alright
I don't belong

Why you gotta say it if you know it's something wrong?
Says that he'll apologize and it won't take too long
Well you don't wanna trust nobody else

(Time)
There's a few things that are gonna have to change
(I'm your son)
Everyone has the same opinion
(Won't you please?)
Your time is almost over
(Don't be mean)
We won't get the chance to do this over
That's alright
I don't belong

I don't want the imprint of your key upon my nose
You don't have to tell no one 'cause no one wants to know
That you don't have no happiness at all

Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
Oh yes we're falling down (Oh yes we're falling down)
So fucking help me up

Always thinking bout yourself
You don't love me
I am an animal
I am not practical

Was I?
