Easily Impressed


You don’t know just how old hat you are
Rattling on about handguns and ritual scars
Center of attention, the in crowd’s special guest
So many people are so easily impressed.

Shock the bourgeoisie and sell them back their dread
Got a name in ’77, you’ll milk it till you’re dead
A few half-baked ideas sold as the perfect pose
We’d all look cooler in the emperor’s new clothes.

Once your words had such a subversive ring
Now it’s the same old decadent shit and it doesn’t mean a thing
Bored of all the things with which you are obsessed
I’m not so easily impressed.
