I was born in the past
and I’ll be damned if I’ll be going back

Notice that solar system right outside your home in France
kids are making noise, drones are silent over Pakistan
Laughing at your uncles jokes
passing out at summer camp
Bought your soul with some blood and sweat
gonna sell it for a couple grand
No one’s here to hold your hand
So and so just formed a band
in 20 years they’ll own Japan with oldies goldies
proto jams
I’m not supportive
the golden era’s overslept
DJs getting no respect
strictly demos, no requests
Strip you of your trophy heads
it’s 6 o’clock/ you know you’re dead
everybody loves the stars and stripes cause the
stars and stripes got no regrets
My words mean nothing
my world’s a tumblr blog so fuck it
I got problems
You got suspects

Notice that punk is dad
All day long I’m Grumpy cat
Baby boomer radio still bumping that
consumption tax
Feeding the nostalgia monster
different breed of upper class
Kittens in a duffle bag
throw them off a fiord canal
Locked inside a love hotel
see my summer go to hell
See my future spoken for
institutions close their doors
doesn’t really mean what it seems be
respect your might when you respect my rights
not the other way around -that’s monarchy
Evergreens are all the rage
Disco balls control the stage
Let’s all pretend there’s a golden age
where burgers served on roller skates
I’ma sing your name
when I dig your grave
while you still alive you’re digging mine
Not the other way around son
face the facts
think payback

born in the past

Need my blood, keeps me young
Use my lungs, steal my grunge
Ankle jeans, secret drums
Hate your songs, read my thumbs
Rolling stones, overdose
When can I get, home alone?
Me and my dad, soul 2 soul
School of rock, I got no Ramones
Bad advice, go to work
Save me from, the grace of jones
Save me from, my daily chores
When I get rich I’m taking yours
When I get rich I’m breaking doors
When I get this I’m a make you poor
The future’s here
and it’s horrible

born in the past
