Skinny Tie says we forgot the eighties too quickly Like when the aesthetic mattered More than the content and the streaks in your hair Were louder than your guitars Or more lately your synthesizers Skinny Tie says that he wants to Look like Simon Le Bon you know Eighty one, eighty two kinda time, maybe later It's the sound, it's around It's Skinny Tie Sensurround Skinny Tie says that his mum is worried about The eye liner in his pocket, says, it's not natural And that his dad would be turning in his grave if he knew He comes across some sort of half-baked Half hearted point about sexuality Knowing full well that he'd never deviate No matter how much he convinces Himself otherwise Skinny Tie reckons it impresses the girls How he's free thinking and stuff, not like these lads That are so common you know, only he doesn't realize How much we see through him Skinny Tie is just someone you know And not someone you'd call a friend You wouldn't notice if you hadn't seen him for weeks But you know you'll see him again It's the sound, it's around It's Skinny Tie Sensurround Skinny Tie always asks where the cool party is But never goes because he chickens out Of wearing that gold silky suit That he saw Spandu ballet wear on Top of the pops and sounds of the eighties Skinny Tie doesn't realize that no matter How defensive he gets about it The eighties probably sucked if you weren't a kid It's the sound, it's around It's Skinny Tie Sensurround

    General Comment:This tells the story of the softcore underground. People who really want to find an underground group, but know they'll grow up in a few years. Many people have clasped onto the 80's as of late, listening to synthpop and other oddities thinking it's underground when it really isn't. We all see through them, but it's ok, becuase we do it ourselves.
