have you ever seen those new surf bands
the ones with the electric guitars
the ones who sing like they don’t even care
tryin’ so hard to fall apart

have you ever heard those new girl grooves?
the ones with the doe-eyed mouths
the ones who wouldn’t even look at you
sippin’ on their (?) bottles

it’s not 1994 anymore
so we missed out on the last (?)
it’s not 1994 anymore
so we missed out on the real rockin’

have you ever seen those skinny urchins
the ones with souls like coals on fire
the ones who think that they know how to hurt you
but they only really know what you desire

i’ve seen a city full of vile bodies
the kind that keep on talkin’ long after they’re dead
if you listen to the rhythm of this city
it’ll keep you talkin’ long an’ it’s deaf

it’s not 1929 anymore
so we missed out on all the last (?)
it’s not 1929 anymore
so we missed out on the last of our dreams
