"Modern Guilt" as written by and Beck Hansen....
Hey
Hey
Da da da da

I feel uptight when I walk in the city
I feel so cold when I'm at home
Feels like everything's starting to hit me
I lost bed ten minutes ago

Modern guilt I'm staring at nothing
Modern guilt I'm under lock and key
It's not what I have changed,
Turning into convention

Don't know what I've done but I feel ashamed
Standing outside the glass room sidewalk
These people talk about impossible things
And I'm falling down the conversations
Another palm beats into you and Jill

Modern guilt is all in our hands
Modern guilt won't get me to bed
Say what you will
Smoking my cigarette
Don't know what I've done but I feel afraid

Da da da

    General Commentit's about feeling dis-coneccted. Not knowing your place, losing track of conversations. feeling hopeless, abandoned, sitting on a cold shoulder. it's about me. it's about you. it's about beck being a eerie mystic wanderer forever journeying in the burning pot of life and falling in rabbit holes. Been there done that kinda shit. Wheere you think you run things and that you are the man/ Cool as fuck. then you hangout with people who are cooler than you and you feel unwanted and non fitting to there ways. it's just about being crazy and detached. its all these feelings combined just straight psycho feeling. It's about being a box in a cage. it's about not feeling like your connected to the universe like a string of lights on the holidays bitches.
