Stripes and scarves,
The stickers on your red guitar.
You've got your asian hybrid car.
You do your best to project who you think you are.
Square rimmed glasses and your cigarettes.
You know the clothes that you need to get.

You know the music I don't have but need.
You helped create this new age indie creed.
You're not cool unless you take oath to the scene.
I'm sorry but that's not me.

I'm not trendy, so you wouldn't like me.
You wouldn't like me. You wouldn't like me.

Scarves and stripes.
If it's mainstream it can't be right.
Obscure experimental electronic bands.
Soft spoken metaphoric guitar man.
Hip indie rockers are all that's right.
I can tell cause their clothes are so perfectly tight.

Trying to hard to be hipster and cool.
You're always the life of the party at school.
You need to dance so the people can see,
How much cooler you are than me.
