"Newport Living" as written by and Shaant Timothy/falcone Hacikyan....
Everyone's a let down
It just depends on how far down they can go
In every circle of friends there's a whore
The one who flirts
And does a little more
But who's to say?
This is a social scene anyway
And everybody wants to explore the new girl
Caught up in her own hard liquor world
But liquor doesn't exist in my world
But liquor doesn't exist in my world

And if you lie you don't deserve to have friends
If you lie you don't deserve to have them
If you lie you don't deserve to have friends
If you lie

You are a sell out
But you couldn't even do that right
So your price tag has been slashed
And now you're chillin' on a half priced clearance rack
You are a sell out
But you couldn't even do that right
So your price tag has been slashed
And now you're chillin' on a half priced clearance rack

The social scene where she gets her fix
Has been broken since '86
Now just look at that social clique
Do you really wanna be a part of it?
Let's not let us forget
Where she gets the habit
She gets the pills from her skills
She gets the skills from the pills
And just look at that clique
Do you really wanna be the star of it?

You are a sell out
But you couldn't even do that right
So your price tag has been slashed
And now you're chillin' on a half priced clearance rack
You are a sell out
But you couldn't even do that right
So your price tag has been slashed
And now you're chillin' on a half priced clearance rack

If you lie you don't deserve to have friends
If you lie you don't deserve to have them
If you lie you don't deserve to have friends
If you lie

Everybody is a let down
It just depends on how far down they can go

You are a sell out
But you couldn't even do that right
So your price tag has been slashed
And now you're chillin' on a half priced clearance rack
You are a sell out
But you couldn't even do that right
So your price tag has been slashed
And now you're chillin' on a half priced clearance rack

    General CommentAnd if you lie, you don't deserve to have friends
    If you lie, you don't deserve to have them
    If you lie, you don't deserve to have friends
    If you lie


    I'm sorry, but that is one of the stupidest fucking lyrics I have ever heard. What it says is true, but it sounds so stupid and cliche, like a 9 year old is writing it.

    General CommentAccording to the CD jacket, it's "You are a sell out" and not "You want to sell out.". Both make sense, but I'm just relaying what I read from the boys themselves.

    General Commentactually. after a quick wikipedia search- where all the rich people from the O.C. live is in Newport. durr. I should've known that. perhaps this song is just about how stupid and dramatic people can be, especially when wealthy. there's also a magazine on the show titled "Newport Living Magazine." hah. someone's an O.C. watcher!

    General CommentI could be wrong, but considering these lads are from the east coast i.e. buffalo new york which is near a rich area of new jersey called newport..im thinking it could be newport, new jersey. not newport beach, California.......newport is part of the downtown distict of jersey city....so....just an idea....however the fact that theres a magazine on the O.C. about it....perhaps you're right....i dont know....just saying...thought they might choose to write about somewhere closer to
    home....

    General Commenti'm like almost positive its about the oc.
    A) i'm from here.
    B) when i saw them it was a thursday and they were sad they were missing it but shaant said "we're in the OC so its cool"
    C) Is anyone from the east coast one? Is it really cool enough to write a song about?
