Shut your face
high school jerks
We’re about to show you how this works
Are we cool?
Laser beams
We’re about to awesome all your dreams
And you’ll say, “What are you, some kind of computer?”
and we’ll say, “A cyborg pimp from the future.”
And I’m going def for sheezy
I’m feeling a bit uneasy.

Let’s get this straight:
oh yeah, we are the champions
We’ll be battle dancing unicorns
oh yes
Battle dancing unicorns
It’s not too late
you could gamble on the heavy hitters
while we’re battle dancing unicorns
with glitter

Twelve-o-clock?
Party rock
We’re hip- hoppin’ and we can’t quite stop
Aggro hair
Grizzly Bear
Bet you’ve never met a thousand-aire
Then you’ll say, “Whatever, I think you’re moronic.”
And we’ll say, “Not really, we’re only bionic.”
And you’re still in high school
but have to acknowledge
that we are professors at Robot Spy College.

To be what I just can’t
impale myself upon the horns
I’m fighting just to be relevant
I’ll battle dance some unicorns

I’m battle dancing unicorns
with glitter.

    Song MeaningI'm not 100% sure, but I think this song is a more abstract extension of "At Least I'm Not Like All Those Other Old Guys"... Five Iron's fans tend to be younger than them, and their style of music is the music of the young (frenzied, energetic, loud). But I'd guess Reese feels a greater cultural disconnect than ever with high school kids. And while the notoriously cynical HS generation of today whose jokes and subculture are hard to understand by those of us 10 or more years ahead of them, Reese is proclaiming that they're charging forward anyway, even trying (unsuccessfully) to participate in the youth subculture via these lyrics.

    Does that make any sense??

    General CommentI concur with your perspective -- especially since the visual imagery closely resembles the manically surreal style of modern cartoons popular in that demographic.
