We'll end up numb from playing video games
We'll get sick of having sex
And we'll get fat from eating candy
As we drink ourselves to death

We'll stay up late making mix tapes
And photoshopping pictures of ourselves
As we masturbate to those pixelated videos
Of strangers fuckin themselves

We are very busy people
We are very busy people

There are crusty sox and boxes making trails straight to the bed
And when we're done sleeping
We'll stay busy dreaming of the things we don't have yet

Well there's a long long list of chores and shit
To do before we play
Let's just piss away the day
Crank-call the cops down at the station
Just for friends conversation
Requesting songs they never play

Lets hear the on that goes:
We are very busy people
We are very busy people
But we always got time for new friends

So come over and knock on our door
It's open, what you waitin for?
We might be sprawled out on the floor
But we still make lovely company
Pull up a chair
Ill pour some tea
We'll shoot the shit 'bout everything
Till you get tired and flip on the TV screen
We stare at the TV screen

That Danny Darki DVD has been repeating for a week
We know every single word
I've got an iPod like a pirate ship
I'll sail the seas with fifty thousand songs I've never heard

All the best of them go

We are very busy people
We are very busy people
But we've always got time for new friends

    General CommentI think this is obviously sarcasm. It's the classic life of any hipster. They like to think that they are creative, political, and intellectual. They like to think that they are well read and have a fantastic taste in music. And because of all this, they think that they are contributing to society and are "very busy people." But what are they really doing? Drinking themselves to death and making mixtapes.

    General CommentI don't know if this is what they mean it as.
    but it could be sarcasm.

    all these unimportant things happening..
    saying that they are "busy" when intact they are doing nothing...

    I don't really think that's what they are talking about.
    I just think it's a groovy tune. :)

    General CommentThis song is the shizz! lol I love the
    Danny Darko part too. At least it sounds like
    Danny not Donnie, but I could be wrong, I never saw
    it. I am so jealous of that dude who got to meet them
    they seem like really cools guys. I heard the lead
    singer used to be in a metal band?! Hmmm... Well I
    think I like this better anyway.This song has been
    my summer anthem lol
    i AM very busy, THANK YOU very much! hahaha
    watching TV in a laZboy can be taxing..
    WHEWW! I don't know if I'll make it, guys.
