Marylin's queen of the scene
In a humble abode
By the bowling green
Marylin she collects names
With picture profile computer games
To hang on

In the modern world
Pretty boys and girls
We've been hangin' on forever
By the radio with the afterglow
Mama told you
Now or never

Vampires out in the sun
Gothic girls, she's the pregnant one
Her indie boy doesn't work
He's a trust fund straight edge soda jerk
To bang on

In the modern world
Pretty boys and girls
We've been hangin' on forever
By the radio with the afterglow
Mama told you
Now or never

That's entertainment
She changes her name
Finds liberation in the bathtub rain

The Indians went back the Bronx
Her kid hides his face in the cereal box
Marylin wants to break free
But lately it's ice cream and bad TV
To hang on

In the modern world
Pretty boys and girls
We've been hangin' on forever
It's so avant-garde
With your platinum card
But you won't return to sender
A little gender bender
Come on and fuck forever
In the modern world
In the modern world
