We fell to the street, full of noise,
With a view to bring the dawn in.
But clashed with the Burtons' shirts
Who saw us as a chance for brawling.

Well, they'd shopped and shaved like brain-dead clones,
And bashed and bruised our skinny bones
For dressing slim and keeping shaggy heads.

The doormen took to their chips
While we fashionably took a pasting.
Then came down to give us a kick
From the doorway that we had laid in.

Well, it's wonderful and glorious
To have the shit kicked out of us
For dressing slim and keeping shaggy heads.

    General Commentexplores the idea of smart yet pretentious indie kids and the relationship with chavs and the like. pretty simple really.
