say....let's get known
if we keep it up, we'll show the haters
it's gonna be soon not later

hey! let's get known!
if we work real hard, we can buy some matching clothes
for our live shows

look at the ants on the floor
they work real hard, lifting 3 times their mass
and sometimes more

so what do you say?
let's get known
let's have 3 spotlights shining
with all our work shown

what do you say? it's all on the line...

    General CommentI think this song is about how all of these bands think it's so easy in the music business and how they can just make it big, no problem. They talk about the ants on the floor lifiting 3 times their mass, so they're like saying that they can do anything if they try to. But it's not possible because we're humans and not ants. All of the rest of the lyrics are mostly about just being famous.

    General CommentIt's definitely sarcastic. "Haters" and "matching clothes" make that true.

    General Commentthis tune repeats "working real hard" a lot.

    i think she's setting a goal for once in her life, but since it seems too big, she's trying to get a friend to do it with her - as well as comparing Hard Work to ants and how it can't be that big a deal and maybe she'd achieve, make it.

    "let's have 3 spotlights shining with all our work shown"

    most people don't want every detail of their artworks public or uncovered, so that line just feels uncareful, spontaneous. yes.

    General Commenttheres no way the song is sarcastic. i think its a childish/playful way of portraying that whole "lets follow our dreams, we can do anything if we put our mind to it" idea. the unicorns are generally very sarcastic, but the whole song seems very sincere.
