oh modern world, you've got me down

you've sucked the soul out of this sound

you've given every crook a crown

and silenced songs you couldn't drown

oh modern world, I can't keep time

I'm falling behind every line

I'm forcing my words into rhymes

with meanings that were never mine

 

but fuck the water in my lungs

I call fascism: fascism

a world war for the cultured class

a gang rape billed as a formal dance

hey hey hey humanist

your holy grail is a cup of piss

verse chorus verse chorus verse

we're holy ghosts on a gangrene earth

 

your holy grail is a cup of piss
