about

This tune is about trying to find your place among the ridiculousness of the modern world and the shallowness of the mainstream aspects of our culture.

I thought Doug's (drums) performance on this tune was incredible and Rusty (keys) plays a fine, fine synth solo in the middle section.

lyrics

If I look into your crystal ball can I break the glass and see it all?
And sing modern songs, so different from the rest
If I chew the fat until its soft could I meet the gods on the mountain top?
And sing modern songs, the ones that sing themselves
Yeah, I'd sing modern songs, so different from the rest

Modern Gods and modern names, modern talk and modern games
Don't think much, just stand in line, much too brash for life in modern times

If I wore a suit lined with gold and jewels could I be the man who makes all the rules?
And sings modern songs, so different from the rest
Yeah I'd sing modern songs, the ones that sings themselves

Modern talk and modern minds, modern fools in modern times
Don't think much just stand in line, much too brash for life in modern times

Dark, dreamy, soulful rock-and-roll, spearheaded by Louisiana born, Chicago-resident Justin Jahnke, Midnight On Pearl Beach is Justin's take on psychedelic rock, trippy folk, and poppy rhythm and blues.
