modern world lyrics – green day

i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world

i’m the cl*ss of 13
in the era of dissent
a hostage of the soul
on a strike to pay the rent
the last of the rebels
without a common ground
i’m gonna light a fire
into the ground

i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world

i’m a nation
without bureaucratic ties
deny the allegation as it’s written

i want to take a ride to the great divide
beyond the “up to date”
and the neo-gentrified
the high definition or the low resident
where the value of your mind
it’s not held in contempt
i can hear the sound of
a beating heart
and bleeds beyond a system
that’s falling apart
with money to burn
on a minimum wage
’cause i don’t give a sh*t
about the modern age

i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
i don’t want to live in the modern world
m*ss hysteria
i don’t want to live in the modern world
m*ss hysteria
i don’t want to live in the modern world
m*ss hysteria
i don’t want to live in the modern world
m*ss hysteria
