Verse 3:
A        F#m
  Like a record that's
               E      A
skipping I'm a modern man
        F#m
And the clock keeps
              E      A
ticking I'm a modern man
              F#m  E
Makes me feel light
A          F#m       E
  Makes me feel right


Chorus:
D
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
But we're wasted and that's
we're still waiting

Verse 4:
A F#m                  E      A
  On a number from the modern man
F#m
Maybe when you're older
         E     A
you will understand
               F#m      E
Why you don't feel right
A                        F#m      E
  Why you can't sleep at night now
