Auteurs – Modern History lyrics

Well the desk porter laughed
News of our legend and our exploits
Travelled car
From bell-hop to hired car
All this and more
Modern History
On the third floor

So is this where he died
Spend your life cutting words up
With a knife
I light a candle for each night
You wate away your life
Modern history
On the third floor

Well they磖e never gonna forget us
We磖e the most famous
People that they know
Went to a party
I didn磘 say a word
You don磘 know how lucky you were
You don磘 know how lucky you are

So we set fire to your room
And we bandaged up your
Hands and arms - now
Where磗 your beauty gone

Modern history
On the third floor
