Sing us a song of the century
It sings like American Eulogy
The dawn of my love and conspiracy
Forgotten hope and the class of 13
Tell me a story into that goodnight
Sing us a song for me

Hysteria
Mass hysteria
Mass hysteria
Mass hysteria

Red alert is the color of panic
Elevated to the point of static
Beating into the hearts of the fanatics
And the neighborhood's a loaded gun
Idle thoughts lead to full-throttle screaming
And the welfare is asphyxiating
Mass confusion is all the new age and it's
Creating a feeding ground for the bottom feeders of hysteria

Mass hysteria
Mass hysteria
Mass hysteria

True sounds of maniacal laughter
And the deaf mute is misleading the choir
The punchline is a natural disaster
And it's sung by the unemployed

Fight fire with a riot
The class war is hanging on a wire
Because the martyr is a compulsive liar
When he said "it's just a bunch of ******s throwing gas into the, "

Hysteria, mass hysteria
Mass hysteria
Mass hysteria

There's a disturbance on the ocean side
They tapped into the reserve
Static response is so unclear now
Mayday this is not a test
As the neighborhood burns
America is falling
Vigilantes warning ya
Calling Christian and Gloria


I don't wanna live in the modern world
I don't wanna live in the modern world
I don't wanna live in the modern world
I don't wanna live in the modern world

Well I'm the class of '13
In the era of dissent
A hostage of the soul
On a strike to pay the rent
The last of the rebels without a common ground
I've gonna light a fire into the underground

Well I don't wanna live in the modern world
I don't wanna live in the modern world
I don't wanna live in the modern world
I don't wanna live in the modern world

I am a nation without bureaucratic ties
Deny the allegation as it's written ****ing lies

Well I want to take a ride to the great divide
Beyond the "up to date" and the neo-gentrified
The high definition for the low resident
Where the value of your mind is not held in contempt

I can hear the sound of a beating heart
That bleeds beyond a system that is falling apart
With money to burn on a minimum wage
Well I don't give a **** about the modern age

[Repeat: x16]
I don't wanna live in the modern world

(Mass hysteria)
