Modern Man

This song is by Arcade Fire and appears on the album The Suburbs (2010).

So I wait my turn, I'm a modern man
And the people behind me, they can't understand
Makes me feel like
Makes me feel like

So I wait in line, I'm a modern man
And the people behind me, they can't understand
Makes me feel like
Something don't feel right

Like a record that's skipping, I'm a modern man
And the clock keeps ticking, I'm a modern man
Makes me feel like
Makes me feel like

In my dream, I was almost there
Then you pulled me aside and said, "You're going nowhere"
They say we are the chosen few but we waste it
And that's why we're still waiting

On a number from the modern man
Maybe when you're older you will understand
Why you don't feel right
Why you can't sleep at night now

In line for a number but you don't understand
Like a modern man
In line for a number but you don't understand
Like a modern man

Oh, I had a dream I was dreaming
And I feel I'm losing the feeling
Makes me feel like
Like something don't feel right

I erase the number of the modern man
Want to break the mirror of the modern man
Makes me feel like
Makes me feel like

In my dream, I was almost there
Then you pulled me aside and said, "You're going nowhere"
I know we are the chosen few but we waste it
And that's why we're still waiting

In line for a number but you don't understand
Like a modern man
In line for a number but you don't understand
Like a modern man

And you feel so right
But how come you can't sleep at night?
In line for a number but you don't understand
Like a modern man

I'm a modern man
I'm a modern man
I'm a modern man
I'm a modern man
