[Intro]
 A F#m E x2

A     F#m                E      A
 I'll wait my turn I'm a modern man
         F#m                      E    A
 And the people behind they can't understand
          F#m        E
 Makes me feel like 
A         F#m        E
 Makes me feel like

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

something don't feel right...

       F#m                         E      A
Like a record that's skippin'I'm a modern man
        F#m                       E      A
And the clock keeps tickin' I'm a modern man
          F#m        E
 Makes me feel light
A         F#m        E
 Makes me feel right

 In my dream I was almost there
           A
 Then they pulled me aside and said you're going nowhere
 D
 They say we are the chosen few
           E                              A
 But we're wasted, and that's we're still waitin'

F#m                  E      A
 On a number from the modern man
 F#m                              E    A
 Maybe when you're older you will understand
               F#m        E
 Why you don't feel right
A                       F#m        E
 Why you can't sleep at night now

why you cant sleep at night now...

 Oh I had a dream I was dreamin'
      F#m                       E   A

 Gonna break the mirror of the modern man
          F#m        E

 Makes me feel like
