Modern World

Paved roads in an urban life
Atop a billion legacies.
Choose your four walls,
Pick a role —
Carving footprints into concrete.

Welcome to the modern world,
Be anyone you wish to be
Within the confines of
The laws and customs that predate you.
Welcome to the modern world.
Find your place —
Even though the good seats are all taken,
There should still be
A few spots in the back.
