Pop Culture (Icon for Hire)

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 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 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 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 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 '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 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
