She walks through the streets sharing parables of wearables with the crowd of the uncool
The secret is in the genes, but I never see her smile
Maybe hopeless is the style, but she’s singing all the while “God Save The Scene”

Just fake it and they’ll never know
Weep for the cooler than thou show
They follow you anywhere you go
But they don’t know you like I knew you back home

Living is so suburban but dying is even worse, it’s so ten years ago
Just when you get it right, you know you’ve got it wrong
Cause there’s a brand new way to belong, but we’re singing the same old song, “God Save the Scene”

One day, sweet perfection descended and she walked across the pond in central park
She’s chillin’ with Lou Reed, and she listens when you pray
Maybe she’s in heaven to stay, but she’s singing to this day “God Save The Scene”

    General Commenti sad that no one has commented yet 'cause i really wanted to know what people thought about this song.....i luv it!♥

    THis is just my what i get from the song..but im sure people have other opinion that i would like to hear

    I think its pretty much about how sometimes life feels like its all about what u wear and how u act and how cool u are and how everything is about trends... and one girl just wants people to forget about that stuff because the people u are trying to impress aren't really as important as u think they are and "they don't know you like I knew you back home." THe girl is just like god save everybody from this superficial life people try to lead

    i don't know if thats right or not but thats what i got out of it.....also i think its kinda saying that evn if you are wrapped up in trends and being cool, there always still peope who love u despite those things
