I am a modern man
I lead an ordered life
This sickness doesn't fit within my restrictions
I am an empty shell
Of what I could have been
I've become this at someone else's insistence
And how should I reply
If that's where my faith lies
I am ashamed to even claim its existence
There is no answer to
The question that haunts you
I wish for nothing and just take what is given
That's living
It's the way that it's been ever since the beginning

If I ever fell in love, was it love?
Or was it something else that felt a little more vacant?
If I ever fell in love, was it love?
Or was it something else that felt a little more vacant?
I am a modern man
And I need a modern girl who will understand
I am a modern man
And I need a modern girl who will understand

One day the man of the house won't be holding the roof up
One day your hands will be stained by the pain of your true love
One day your daughters and sons will just be the remains of
One day you'll wish you were dreaming and that you could wake up
Give up the hope

Baby, I remember when you and I were only friends
And we didn't know a better way to say I love you then
Maybe that's the way it is for now
Don't feel let down about it because you know
It will be good for us again
Give up the hope
That life is a series of feelings exploding
You're missing the point because you're hoping
For something more
But what we have is what everyone's dying for
So no more songs
No more favorites
No more future
No more blame
This is the end of your life
This is the end of your life
It's all that you've done
All that you get
This is the end
Don't you spend regretting the time you've already misspent
The angels, like vultures, descend crying ah, ah, ha, ah
Give up the hope

It feels like I'm slipping, I'm slipping, I'm slipping
I'm slipping away
Your voice keeps on drifting out further and further
And further away
It feels like I'm slipping, I'm slipping, I'm slipping
I'm slipping away
Your voice keeps on drifting out further and further
Don't leave me this way
