Verse I:

 F                Dflat
I've got nothing to say,
I've got nothing to do,

 F		   Gsharp
all of my neurons are functioning smoothly

   Dflat   		  Eflat    F
yet still I'm a cyborg just like you.

 F		      Dflat
I'm one big myoma that thinks,
my planet supports only me,

 F			    Gsharp
I've got this one big problem will I live forever?

    Dflat            Eflat     f
I've got just a short time to see.

Chorus:

 F   Gsharp   Eflat     F-Eflat-F
Modern man - evolutionary betrayer,
modern man - ecosystem destroyer,
Modern man - destroy yourself in shame,

 F   Gsharp   Dflat              Eflat
modern man - pathetic example of earth's organic heritage.

verse II(same as above):

When I look back and think, when I ponder and ask "why?"
I see my ancestors spend with careless abandon assuming eternal supply

Solo:

Chorus:

 F   Gsharp   Eflat    F-Eflat-F
Modern man - evolutionary betrayer
Modern man - ecosystem destroyer
Modern man - destroy yourself in shame

 F   Gsharp   Dflat				Eflat
Modern man - patheric example of earth's organic heritage,

 Dflat			Eflat
just a sample of carbon-based wastage

 Dflat		     Eflat              F
just a fucking tragic epic of you and I . . .


Dflat  F  Dflat  F  Gsharp  Dflat  Eflat  F
. . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . . (end.)


Chords:

F ----  G ---  Gsharp ---  Dflat ---  Eflat ---  F (chorus only) ---
  ----    ---         ---	 ---	    ---			 ---
  -10-    ---         ---	 -6-	    -8-			 ---
  -10-    -5-         -6-	 -6-	    -8-			 -3-
  --8-    -5-         -6-	 -4-	    -6-			 -3-
  ----    -3-         -4-	 ---	    ---			 -1-

In the solo, (b) = bend.


So there it is.  The solos aren't quite right, I don't think, but they
should be pretty close. Enjoy. --Geoff.

Clearly wrong. Modern man is not a BLACK FLAG song!!!! It is a song made by the band BAD RELIGION. PLEASE REMOVE THIS TAB!
