On Modern Men

This song is by Quiet Company and appears on the album Everyone You Love Will Be Happy Soon (2009).

So lift your hands up from your sides, rinse them both off with your pride
And let the world see what we're not
Because we have carved out our desires
And placed them in the hands of liars that will forget you when they want

They want you to take a bow
Everybody here's allowed one
So make it good, son

And let there be no sacred lands
With one final song and dance, let our clean hands know the earth
We'll build a culture, brave and strong, we won't rely on anyone
And all our souls will know their worth

Pave the way, we are modern men, and we have fought to exist
We have crawled from the water to the dry land, and our hands are the dirtiest

But I'm alive and the sun is shining in
Oh, I have fought to exist
I have crawled from the water to the dry land, and my hands are the dirtiest

I'm alive and the sun is shining in
Oh, my belly has been filled
I have seen everything a body can see, and my hands are the dirtiest
