I stand up for my pride
I don't wanna be just like anyone
In this world I cannot hide
I must finish what I have begun

That's the way I play
In the modern day
'Cause I wanna stay
In the modern day

Got a picture in my mind
Of the way that I wanna be
So I search until I find
The power inside of me

It's another phase
Of the modern day

Gotta face up to this life
Can't let it get the best of me
So I make a sacrifice
If that's the way it has to be

I'm doin' what I feel is right
I'm ready if I need to fight

In the modern way
In the modern day

Gotta face up to this life
Can't let it get the best of me
If I make a sacrifice
That's the way it has to be

Like a motor in overdrive
I feel good and I feel alive
I got no need to beg or borrow
Got a shortcut to tomorrow

And I'm on my way
To the modern day
Got a lot to say
In the modern day

'Cause I need to stay
In the modern day

In the modern day
