oh my god there's scenesters everywhere
with their hair gel and their vintage t-shirts
why didn't the shins come to phoenix?
and why didn't mirah come to phoenix?

because the modified is too small
and the marquis is too big
and the complex is rightfully dead
and the hipsters with their snide comments and aversion to applause

oh my god hardcore kids everywhere
with their hair gel and their color green
how do they look so good while their convictions remain so strong?

because their hair gel that they use isn't tested on animals
and their swallow tattoos are fucking lame
and cocaine is essentially vegan
and they don't give a fuck anyway
they're so vain, and yes, this song is about them

oh my god post-hardcore kids everywhere
with their violence and pomposity
so fucking straightedge getting high off of self-righteousness
and praying to a sideways cross
so urban, so infantile, so angry, so young, and so poor
they don't need to use a crutch 'cuz they've got the wheelchair

oh my god there's assholes everywhere
pretentious fucking assholes everywhere
oh my god there's assholes everywhere
pretentious judgmental assholes everywhere

    General Commenti did my best with the lyrics for this song, but there's a few things i couldn't figure out. i'm pretty sure one of them is just a band name that i don't know, and the other is some venue in phoenix, following contextual clues. also i'm not entirely sure he's saying "swallow tattoos" so if i'm wrong, please bitchslap me into accuracy. i just figured i'd give it a shot since there doesn't seem to be lyrics for it anywhere else (that i could find, anyway)

    but yeah, i tried.

    General Commentit's for sure "and Why doesn't Mirah come to Pheonix?"
    also the recording i have starts out with him just saying "scenesters, er hipsters, er"
    but i guess thats not really lyrics is it?

    you did really well. it seems completely right.

    this song is wonderful.

    General CommentThe first one is Modified [Arts], which is too small and now closed.

    Then the Marquee is too big. And really hot in the summer.
