lyrics

straw hats for the races, converse for the rock show,
and i can see that the lime hasn't fallen far from the tree.

billions of bands of bankers bringing bland music to my ears,
the sound of a midlife crisis is a harley engine screaming for attention,
sick of beanbags, never want to see them,
this is not the soundtrack to coffee and chatter.

straw hats for the races, converse for the rock show,
and i can see that the lime hasn't fallen far from the tree

egos replicate the skies that cities' scrape,
mediocrity cannot escape stages built for money's sake,
clear intent on sales cement the lack of individuality and resultant banality,
childish feuds dictate our view by cutting access to the art refusing to play the part, but the cast begins the act.

straw hats for the races, converse for the rock show,
and i can see that the lime hasn't fallen far from the tree.

billions of bands of bankers bringing bland music to my ears,
the sound of a midlife crisis is a harley engine screaming for attention,
sick of beanbags, never want to see them,
this is not the soundtrack to coffee and chatter.

straw hats for the races, converse for the rock show,
and i can see that the lime hasn't fallen far from the tree.
