Lyrics

Still selling lots of cars in the USA

Still popping lots of pills and turning lots of keys

You hope the kids are alright

It keeps you up at night

Still sitting and dreaming basement fantasies

With your heart on the glory and your eyes on the screen

Technology's slave

In the home of the brave

 

Oh, lift the level of the radio

Searching for some rock & roll

I'll be a modern man's Romeo

Living off of love alone

I could break your heart of stone

When I show you I'm just flesh and bone

 

Pushing in and out, in and out of the door

Riots on the street outside of every store

With buyer's regret

But still don't have enough yet

In so much need for all the things that you see

Big house, big car, big boat, big screen

Collars deep blue

That's no longer you

 

Oh, lift the level of the radio

Searching for some rock & roll

I'll be a modern man's Romeo

Living off of love alone

I could break your heart of stone

When I show you I'm just flesh and bone

 

Oh, lift the level of the radio

Searching for some rock & roll

I'll be a modern man's Romeo

Living off of love alone

I could break your heart of stone

When I show you I'm just flesh and bone
