Modern Culture

Wake up wondering if I can ever be free
Cos everybody’s quoting adverts at me
Getting’ me to buy those what you want lies
Sorry but I don’t fit into this one size

I’m a man not a consumer
Contrary to popular rumour
I’m tired of living in this modern culture
Every promise is just to insult you
I’m tired of living in this modern culture
Tired of seeing the circling vultures

Stole a lifestyle now I sent it back
Beautiful but soulless and pre-packed
In this rebranded world everyone’s got a barcode
I’m getting commercial slogan overload

If they tell me one more time to just do it
I’ll tell ‘em where to screw it
Cos I’m tired of living in this modern culture
Every promise is just to insult you
I’m tired of living in this modern culture
Tired of seeing the circling vultures

I’m a walking billboard
Someone’s name upon my clothes
My morals fell while my cholesterol rose
It costs so much to feel so cheap
It’s not like what I’ve seen
In all those myths on my little flashing screen

 

Your subliminal messages won’t work on me
Cos I’ll be who I wanna be
Keep the marketing strategies that you got
Your incomes disposable but mine is not

The future really ain’t that bright
It’s full of the same expensive shite
And I’m tired of living in this modern culture
Every promise is just to insult you
I’m tired of living in this modern culture
Tired of seeing the circling vultures

Tired of living in this modern culture
Every promise is just to insult you
I’m tired of living in this modern culture
Tired of seeing the circling vultures
