Intro:
C   Em


Verse 1:
          C                        
From the view in the office on the sixteenth floor
Em
   (And that you gave 21 years for).
  C
Staring out the window at the big billboard
Em
  To remind you what you're fighting for:
       Am
It's this guy's life with his flawless smile,
     Em
His beautiful wife and his perfect child.
Am
  So to buy and be this guy you choose
       G
And remind yourself your tie is not a noose

  C
Freedom is not a coffee break with your boss.
Em
Eat, sleep, breath at pre-destined stops.
C
  And Xerox one hundred times:
         Em
Now one hundred people read what bored you to write
Am
   And we can all be bored as a team after all.
Em
   Ain't that the American Dream?
Am
   If that's the dream and you can't shake it up
G
   Then please wake me up.

   
Chorus:
                    C
The world's closing in; I'm kicking out.
            G
They can't hear me when I shout:
        Am                           G
Modern life, modern life has let me down.
              C
Its soul destroying, don't you love it?
         G
You can take this job and shove it:
        Am                           G
Modern life, modern life has let me down.
        C                         Em
Modern life, Modern life, modern life has let me down
C                      Em
  Modern life, modern life has let me down

Verse 2:
         C
Come on home and slam the door of your four by four
          Em
That you never had and never will have a use for.
C
  And take a walk through the uniform lawn
  Em
Knowing you will die in the town you were born.
    Am
A pre-packaged meal, a pre-packaged plate;
     Em
In front of the TV on a pre-packaged tray
      Am
The choice to be free, and we choose to be
     G
Like everybody else.


Chorus 2:
                    C
The world's closing in; I'm kicking out.
            G
They can't hear me when I shout:
        Am                           G
Modern life, modern life has let me down.
              C
Its soul destroying, don't you love it?
         G
You can take this job and shove it:
        Am                           G
Modern life, modern life has let me down.


Break:
        Dm                       Am
Modern life, modern life, modern life has let me down
Em                      F
  Modern life, modern life has let me down
  
          Dm
Whatever happened to the love and the unity?
Am
   The building up of the community?
Em
   Cos now it's all opportunity;
              F
It's like the ocean's tainted with impurity.
Dm
   So when the norm is the lunacy,
          Am
And they tell you to jump do you agree?
Em
   And if I don't it's why they're suing me:
      F
It's like you don't know what you do to me.

           Dm
When you shut me up and you shout me out,
         Am
And you tell me like there never was a doubt.
          Em
That it's all planned out: how I'll be living;
 F
Dangle a carrot to keep me driven.
Dm
   But now I'm killing anything I'm given
    Am
Cos I will never give in!
Em
   I'll take a hammer and with precision
 F
Tear up the newspaper,
      F
And smash the television!


Chorus (first part is quieter):
                    C
The world's closing in; I'm kicking out.
            G
They can't hear me when I shout:
        Am                           G
Modern life, modern life has let me down.
              C
Its soul destroying, don't you love it?
         G
You can take this job and shove it:
        Am                           G
Modern life, modern life has let me down.
        C                         Em
Modern life, Modern life, modern life has let me down
C                      Em
  Modern life, modern life has let me down
C                      Em
  Modern life, modern life has let me down
C                      Em
  Modern life, modern life has let me down
