MODERN MAN
in another world
i could be the best
but in this one
i am just a little world obsessed
i’m a modern man
with a lust for death
in a modern world
that’s just a little world obsessed
in a modern world
that’s just a little world obsessed

wait for signs but sign away
grew to scoff remain to pray
pray the voices were the one
pray in one hand, shit in one

wish i was a better man
wish i didn’t, wish i can
wish i didn’t come to scoff
wish i could just turn it off

wish it all could be undone
wish in one hand shit in one
wish in one hand shit in one

and I know it's a curse
on reflection
and I just can't seem to relieve or cure
the obsession

i'm a modern man
with a lust for death
in a modern world
that's just too fucking world-obsessed

and i'm just a clown
putting on a show
I'm a punchline to a joke that died
ten years ago

about

The Ugly Facade Texas

We live our lives in boxes, with little glowing screens. We fill our blood with toxins, so we can deal with things. And sometimes, more than often, the bitter masks the taste. The fruitless failed reflection: what if it's all a waste?
