So I wait my turn, I'm a modern man
And the people behind me, they can't understand  Makes me feel like
 Makes me feel like

So I wait in line, I'm a modern man
And the people behind me, they can't understand  Makes me feel like
 Something don't feel right 

Like a record that's skipping 
I'm a modern man
And the clock keeps ticking 
I'm a modern man
 Makes me feel like
 Makes me feel like

In my dream I was almost there
And you pulled me aside and said you're going nowhere
They say we are the chosen few
But we're wasted 
And that's why we're still waiting
On a number from the modern man
 Maybe when you're older you will understand 
Why you don't feel right 
Why you can't sleep at night now

In line for a number but you don't understand 
Like a modern man
In line for a number but you don't understand 
Like a modern man

Oh I had a dream I was dreaming 
And I feel I'm losing the feeling  Makes me feel like
Like something don't feel right 
I erase the number of the modern man
Want to break the mirror of the modern man
 Makes me feel like
 Makes me feel like

In my dream I was almost there
But you pulled me aside and said you're going nowhere
I know we are the chosen few
But we're wasted 
And that's why we're still waiting
In line for a number but you don't understand 
Like a modern man
In line for a number but you don't understand 
Like a modern man

And you feel so right 
But how come you can't sleep at night?
In line for a number but you don't understand 
Like a modern man

I'm a modern man
I'm a modern man
I'm a modern man
I'm a modern man
