​The Modern Man

This song is by Amelia Curran and appears on the album Spectators (2012).

If the working man has all the land and we have all the fun
Does it rain on everyone or am I dreaming
If I substitute the tried and true upon a razor's edge
Only half what's in my head can I believe in
Does a sicker moon than bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world

I walked the middle path of life before I placed my bets
Oh, just like all the rest afraid of dying
We race to make the mark before the theater goes dark
And searching for a spark we dream we're flying
Does a sicker moon then bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world

Oh, come on down you songbirds
You are only singing to yourselves
Spectators of your silence
The mythologizes to a truth
Are you are you
Are you are you
Does a sicker moon than bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world
Does a sicker moon than bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world
