The Modern World
This is the modern world
This is the modern world

What kind of fool do you think I am?
To think I know nothing of this modern world
All my life, it's been the same
I've learned to live by hate and pain
It's my inspiration drive
I've learned more than you'll ever know
Even at school, I felt quite sure
That one day I would be on top
Another dot upon the map
The teachers who said I'd be nothing

This is the modern world that I've learned about
This is the modern world, we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong

Say what you like, 'cause I don't care
I know where I am and going to
It's somewhere I won't preview
To have to explain myself to you
I don't give a damn about you if you

This is the modern world that I've learned about
Yeah, this is the modern world, we don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong
This is, this is, this is, this is, this is
This is, this is
Yeah
This is, this is, this is, this is, this is
This is, this is, this is
We don't need no one
To tell us what's right or wrong
Ah
This is the modern world
This is the modern world
