​Modern Act

This song is by Cloud Nothings and appears on the album Life Without Sound (2017).

Here we are among the living
See and count your friends
Gathered in a room together
This is how it ends
Can't stand the modern act
Whose war is this, what god is that?
Feels like the tide is only
Starting to come in

Do you know what it's like
To be out and alive?
To say you're doing alright
Yeah, you're doing just fine?
When you feel like an ocean
Coming out of a creek
Filling rivers to wait for you wherever you are?
When you're out and around
And all you ever see
Are people looking away?
It's nothing new to me

I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone

Calling on the light, forgiving
See to all and then
Waiting on the old, expiring force
To go and end
Can't stand the modern act
Whose war is this, what god is that?
Feels like the tide is only
Starting to come in

Do you know what it's like
To be out and alive?
To say you're doing alright
Yeah, you're doing just fine?
When you feel like an ocean
Coming out of a creek
Filling rivers to wait for you wherever you are?
When you're out and around
And all you ever see
Are people looking away?
It's nothing new to me

I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone

Left the light on you
Take account of all the fire in me
Won't come over and make it out
A little light (?)
Left the light on you
Take account of all the fire in me
Won't come over and make it out
A little light (?)

I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
I want a life, that's all I need lately
I am alive but all alone
