"The Modern Man" as written by and Amelia Curran....
If the working man has all the land and we have all the fun
Does it rain on everyone or am I dreaming
If I substitute the tried and true upon a razors edge
Only half what’s in my head can I believe in
Does a sicker moon then bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world

I walked the middle path of life before I placed my bets
Oh just like all the rest, afraid of dying
We race to make the mark, before the theater goes dark
And searching for a spark, we dream we’re flying
Does a sicker moon then bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world

Oh come on down you songbirds
You are only singing to yourselves,
Spectators of your silence,
Then mythologize it to a truth
Are you are you
Are you are you

Does a sicker moon then bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world
Does a sicker moon then bloom a thorn
For the modern man who rules the world
