lyrics

Life's strange when your friends are names on a screen,
and the bulk of them are strangers.
You tap feet to a different beat.
Oh no
As it is we haven’t got any rhythm
Down with a second way of life
Make it pretend it's not by default.
Self-exclusionary
Cool and very, very,
very flavor of the week.

This has all been a joke.
This has all been some
jacked-up hipster hoax
that I'm not cool enough to understand.
This has all been a ruse.
What's that?
I laugh I lose?
So, tell it to me, (un)'til it's funny, man,
if this has all been a joke.

You get dressed from a pile of clothes on the floor.
Don't pretend you'll go out later.
You get depressed by the opposite sex. Oh no.
Keep it up until they downgrade the standard.
The media tell us "now's our day"
but we're not the “us” they mean.
So.
Grow a handlebar mus-
tache,
and you can be the trailer park trash of a new regime

It's a joke.
I think it's all been been some
jacked-up hipster hoax.
That I'm not cool enough to understand.

I know it's all been a ruse.
What's that?
I laugh I lose?
So, tell it to me, (un)'til it's funny, man,
if this has all been a joke.


I
won't wear glasses anymore,
or talk about pirates, ninjas and cats.
They never were cool.
I Wrote
my last meme about the zombie apocalypse.
Hit on my last girl with
something clever written in binary
on her tits,


computers are commonplace to the point
where you feel no ownership.
When that aesthetic is gone as well
the dice on your shelf can be your
twenty-side identity crisis.
So get lost in this sea of archetypes.
all as cutting-edge as you;
make the most of it and,
make a post of it and,
scream into an empty room:

This has all been a joke.
I think it's all been some jacked-up
hipster hoax
that I'm not cool enough to understand.
I think it's all been a ruse.
What's that?
I laugh I lose?
So, tell it to me, until it's funny, man,
if this has all been a joke.

I think it's all been a joke.
I know it's all been a hoax.
I think it's all been a joke.
If this has all been a....
