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 they 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 no
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
Wanna break the mirror of the modern man
Makes me feel like.....
Makes me feel like.....
In my dream I was almost there then they 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
If it's alright then 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
