lyrics

MODERN TRAGEDY

Hey! We don't need an alibi
or some talking head to say we're livin' clean
It seems that everyone's just getting by
while pretending they're in some exotic scene

Whoa-oh -- the fuzz
it's all because
we're done imagining some cruel reality
Ooh-ooh -- we say
we'll work the day
and we'll bless the evening with some modern tragedy
So this party's on again

I've given up on ever finding out
where the owner of this place keeps all the change
Some lonely priestess has begus to shout
and she's telling us that we can turn the page

Whoa-oh -- the boss
he knows the cost
but we're blinded by the color and the pageantry
Ooh-ooh -- we say
we'll work the day
and we'll bless the evening with some modern tragedy
So this party's on again

Why must I think so hard about it?
We'll get to revolution when we can
I think I'll take another drink and try to stand again
