lyrics

You need a new face to shed an old skin.
So you just change your name: now you're the new kid.
So here's a new song. It's just an old song.
But there's no paying for playing. Don't quit your day job.
Get on a soapbox and talk my ear off
until my brain starts caving like an atom bomb.
You can keep changing until it takes off,
until you're 40 & boring and blow yr head off.

Retro City:
you want it all.
Eat shit baby,
you're 10 feet tall.
You're still swinging.
Get in the car.
Retro City:
We drove too far.

It's just a retro city.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.

Now you're the new king
of the inner cool scene.
& now you're making the radio station dream cream.
It's looking alright, but did they tell you
you're remaking the records that they sell you?
Now the city's full of shitty people
who want to cash in the magic that you managed to pull.
So what's the next move for Mr. Rock Moves?
Can you sustain it the way you never planned to?

Retro City:
It's in the bag.
Keep on baby,
it's all we have.
Rock me sweetie,
& take the cash.
Fuck this city,
this place is trashed.

It's just a retro city.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.
Retro City.
