lyrics

Alaska Verse 1:

His flow is like nature
A gush of wind or a babbling brook
The stoic type sacred
Somewhat chagrined he's a cavalier crook.

At least That's how he fancies himself
Sid and nancy or John I'm only dancin(Dancin dancin dancin)
An odd relation with the music Whoopee Goldberg and Ted danson
He has an occupation but it holds his soul for ransom

A weird plot homes now he's in Stockholm
A punch the clock drone or at home with his scotch stoned
He's comfortably numb he has the comfortable life
Once he was undone now he comes home to his wife

-It's not that he misses it. He was a miscreant
-He must admit that at first three were some misgivings
-He loves Christmas with his kid and all the gift giving
He also loves to spit it on a beat something blistering

but That's his to reconcile --
It was a test of his guile at least I reckon for a while
Two sides of a person with some version of a middle ground
A ven diagram if a man that's how the riddle sound

It's not that profound or that big of a deal
It's not like he went and reinvented the wheel
He just found a way to make time for all that he loves
when he defines himself Now he checks all of the above

Hook

Let’s celebrate the modern man
The man in love
Let’s celebrate the modern man
The man unplugged
Let’s celebrate the modern man
I need my space
let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s plead the case

Let’s celebrate the modern man
The man in touch
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let's give it up
Let’s celebrate the modern man
The modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
The modern man

Alaska Verse 2:

I sit here blank faced staring at a blank screen
Blank slate pregnant pauses shoreline of the mainstream
Trendsetter born from apocalypse a Ledbetter
You can keep the jimmy hats I'ma take the French letter

--I think It classes up the joint a bit
Its masterpiece theater with a mirror for the voyeurism
Actually its joy division all bravado gone
Mixed with my serato now there's potholes in my lawn

Apostrophe for ownership - a pot to pee
And possible im free put a stop to all that loner shit
The onanist the swollen dick from mental masturbation
The exasperated masochist who lacks imagination

But Frankie says relax---
And me myself I like to max
Instead of spiraling down the drain of rather fly away to Spain
My wounds were always self inflicted Was addicted to the pain

12 steps to recover 8 steps to perfection
Memory sort of muddy been bloodied by introspection
-The cuts and bruises are useless if you don't use them
I reckon there's some truth in extending your reckless youth.

--this recluse is sort of the living proof
You can salvage all the wreckage on a record and a loop
And leave it in the past keep your passion in the present
Thank you for your time I've been Alaska it's a blessing

Let’s celebrate the modern man

Let’s celebrate the modern man

Let’s plead the case

Let’s celebrate the modern man
The man in touch
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let's give it up
Let’s celebrate the modern man
The modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man

Rast RFC Verse:

He never listened to his mom Head bobbing to a Slick Rick Song
A child’s story unfolding in the arms of the law
He went and set up the alarm on the car
Woke the neighbor up that saw him out the window and gave the sergeant a call

So now he sits in jail he’s in living hell
And he says “I will not live my life in a cell”
So he decides to change gets out uses his brain
Gets his GED enrolls in college and gets good grades

Now he’s got a job no longer has to rob and steal
A true taste of life’s joys
Then he gets married to the girl of his dreams
And they have a beautiful baby boy

He doesn’t smoke drink or party goes to bed at 9 o’clock
Wakes up and does it all over again
I wouldn’t have it any other way
I guess I’m just an old fashioned modern Man

Hook:
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
Let’s celebrate the modern man
