Lyrics:

   This is the modern world, this is the modern world

   What kind of fool do you think I am?
   You think I know nothing of the modern world
   All my life has been the same, I've learned to live by hate and pain
   It's my inspiration drive

   I've learned more than you'll ever know
   Even in school I felt quite sure
   That one day I would be on top, and I'd look down upon the map
   The teachers who said I'd be nothing

   This is the modern world that I've learned about
   This is the modern world, we don't need no one to tell us what's right or wrong

   Say what you like, 'cause I don't care
   I know where I am and going too
   It's somewhere I won't preview, don't have to explain myself to you
   I don't give two fucks about your review

   This is the modern world that I've learned about
   This is the modern world, we don't need no one to tell us what's right or wrong

   We don't need no one to tell us what's right or wrong
