Welcome to Modern Life

lyrics

司会を務める二流の深夜番組にあんたがやってきて
今日は何をお持ちになったんですかと尋ねられた

「今日は私の子供を売りたいと思います」とあんたが答えて
周りは相当に怒っちまったけど俺は案外そうでもなかったぜ

命より大事なものを
金に変えたがってる奴はゴロゴロしてて
そいつらとなんの変わりもない

最近じゃそうやってみんな
衝撃的な見出しのついた何か売りに出せるものはないかって探してる
俺はオリンピックを勝ち取ったこの自分の脚を売りに出し
他に何か手放せるものはないかって血眼になって探してる

そして残った身体中にいっぱいの装飾品をつけて
何一つ不自由なく暮らしていこうそれがモダンライフ

命より大事なものを
金に変えたがってる奴はゴロゴロしてて
そいつらとなん の変わりもない

ずっと雨が降り続いてる荒廃した土地を買いたい
そう言ってるやつがいるんだ
そこでは何も育たないし欲望も悲しみも生まれないって話だ
あんたのところで取り扱ってくれないか

きっとみんな幸せを胸いっぱいに感じるだろう
モダンライフ

そして残った身体中にいっぱいの装飾品をつけて
何一つ不自由なく暮らしていこうそれがモダンライフ

You come on the second-rate late night TV show I host,
and I ask what you have brought along
"Today I would like to sell my child," you answer
Everyone else gets pretty upset, but I am unexpectedly calm

Everyone is like that nowadays,
Searching around for something they can sell
Something that will stand out on the market
I'm out to sell these legs that won me an Olympic medal
Searching with bloodshot eyes for anything else I can offload

Then decorate what is left of my body with lots of accessories
And live without a care in the world
That's modern life

There are people all around, looking to make money
in exchange for the things most important than life
And I am no different from them

One guy said he would like to purchase the wasteland
Desolate, where the rain never ends
They say that nothing can grow there; neither desire nor sadness is born
So could you arrange that for me?

I am certain that everybody is brimming with happiness
Modern life

Then decorate what is left of my body with lots of accessories
And live without a care in the world
That's modern life
