ADRIAN BELEW lyrics - Modern Man Hurricane Blues

ADRIAN BELEW
"Modern Man Hurricane Blues"

When I was a boy
Simple times, simple joy
Ooh, and life was not full of hate and chaos
Ooh, a modern man
Lives in some kind of hurricane
Ooh, I need your love to keep me calm
When the world is a storm

Hell fire man desire
Downtown scream siren
Ghetto gun drug lord
Kill children stillborn
Asphalt flesh bone
Trash bag alley bomb

Hey, hey, it's a sin
About the shape the world is in
Hey, hey, it's a shame
Modern man hurricane

Hey, hey, it's a sin
About the shape the world is in

Earth dump suck soil
Sewer spit sea oil
Toxic ocean chemical fish
Man made death wish

Hey, hey, it's a shame
Modern man hurricane

Ooh, I need your love to keep me calm
Ooh, I need your love to keep me calm

Ooh, I need your love to keep me calm
When the world's a storm

Hey, hey
Modern man hurricane
Hey, hey
