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 wnt 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 f**k forever

In the modern world

In the modern world
