  • I've been thinkin' 'bout my father lately
    The person that he made me
    The person I've become
    And I've been tryna fill all of this empty
    But, fuck, I'm still so empty
    And I could use some love

    And I've been trying to find a reason to get up
    Been trying to find a reason for this stuff
    In my bedroom and my closet
    The baggage in my heart is still so dark

    Modern loneliness, we're never alone
    But always depressed, yeah
    Love my friends to death
    But I never call and I never text, yeah
    La di da di da
    You get what you give and give what you get, so
    Modern loneliness, we love to get high
    But we don't know how to come down

    If I could break my DNA to pieces
    Get rid of all my demons
    If I could cleanse my soul
    Then I could fill the world with all my problems
    But, shit, that wouldn't solve them
    So, I'm left here alone

    And I've been trying to find a reason to get up
    Been trying to find a reason for this stuff
    In my bedroom and my closet
    The baggage in my heart is still so dark

    Modern loneliness, we're never alone
    But always depressed, yeah
    Love my friends to death
    But I never call and I never text, yeah
    La di da di da
    You get what you give and give what you get, so
    Modern loneliness, we love to get high
    But we don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down

    Modern loneliness, we're never alone
    But always depressed, yeah
    Love my friends to death
    But I never call and I never text, yeah
    La di da di da
    You get what you give and give what you get, so
    Modern loneliness, we love to get high
    But we don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down
    Down, down, down, down, down
    We don't know how to come down

    Modern loneliness, we're never alone
    But always depressed, yeah Writer/s: Ari Leff, Jonathan Simpson, Michael Matosic, Michael Pollack, Mike Elizondo
