Modern Love Story

This song is by Glassjaw and appears on the album Everything You Ever Wanted To Know About Silence (2000).

This song is a cover of "Modern Love Story" by Youth of Today.
A boy, a girl- a love story.
But why did it end in misery?
Taking our chances, getting our thrills...
Taking and taking but never getting our fill.
And this is what I see.
A modern love story.
Love defined on our TV
Telling us, teaching us what we need.
Are we in love or just so alone,
That we're looking for anyone to hold?
When the prey is caught, the thrill gone,
So we'll switch partners and move along.
And we won't use our brains,
Because our lust is too strong.
Overlooking the person to whom the body belongs.
