Summary

This is a punk rock song I wrote recently. I'm not much of a musician, so I can't actually play it, or really totally even know exactly what chords make it up. So I guess, ultimately, it might as well be considered a poem, but I mean for it to be in the style of a punk rock song, similar to something like The Clash, Green Day, Dead Kennedys, or something like that, in case anyone's interested.

Modern Men - A Punk Song

 

Insulted to the brink of panic

Meaningless alerts, oh cram it!

Preachers ranting nonstop, every Friday night!

 

Television advertisements

Radio and online lies and

Feelings like I got to go and get into a fight!

 

My mind feels like a memory card

And it’s gotten so exaggerated, so exasperated, so complete, and full, and ready to explode!

So I just-

Gotta get out, gotta find sunlight

And I gotta find a place without any sight

Of those opinionated, those constantly frustrated, lying moneymaking, backstabbing, irritating modern men.

 

Glorified and cheap accountants

Penetrating needs and wants and

Companies that feed off insecurities.

 

Living in a land of pictures

Coca Cola brands and fixtures

Gazing at the highway billboards, buying all in sight!

 

Living in a world of hygiene

Watching ploys to stop the smoking

Madison Avenue’s really changed.

 

And the more things change, the more they stay the same!

 

My mind feels like a memory card

And it’s gotten so exaggerated, so exasperated, so complete, and full, and just about to blow!

So I just-

Gotta get out, gotta find sunlight

And I gotta find a place without any sight

Of those opinionated, those constantly frustrated, lying moneymaking, backstabbing, irritating modern men

Modern men, modern men, I gotta get away (HEY!)

Modern Men, modern men, that’s all I gotta say (HEY!)

Modern Men, modern men, I think I’m gonna lose (HEY!)

Modern Men, modern men, there’s no such thing as choose!

Modern Men, modern men, I wanna get away!
