Pop Culture Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
And the beat goes on, drone drone like a metronome
Day in and day out I know how the story gonna go
Typical, typical, tongue tied and weak willed
Stuck on the sedative, evidently to sleep well
But I haven't slept in days, I haven't dreamt in nights
I've been busy building theories I just can't wait to try
See, I think the beat's made to drown out the sound of the boom boom
While they shoot our last hope down
Verse 2
Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
'Cause I'm not like you, I'm immune, I'm immune
Say it over and over until it comes true
Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
And we all act like we see right through it
When we all know we're addicted to it
Verse 3
And the beat goes on, drone drone like a metronome
Day in and day out I know how the story gonna go
And the beat goes on, drone drone like a metronome
Day in and day out I know how the story gonna go
Check out them men in suits, they're working overtime,
Memorizing what you buy, analyzing what you like
I think the beat's made to clash and distract while they cha ching
Try and buy our loyalties back
Verse 4
Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
'Cause I'm not like you, I'm immune, I'm immune
Say it over and over until it comes true
Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
And we all act like we see right through it
When we all know we're addicted to it
Verse 5
Counting down the minutes 'til my heartbeat stops
Fooling myself is a full-time job
Verse 6
Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
'Cause I'm not like you, I'm immune, I'm immune
Say it over and over until it comes true
Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
And we all act like we see right through it
When we all know we're addicted to it
Verse 7
Counting down the minutes 'til my heartbeat stops
Fooling myself is a full-time job
Pop culture does nothing for me
The American dream mainstream just bores me
