lyrics

Don’t mind me, mom and dad
I’m just gonna talk to strangers
In a quasi-care free get rich quick scheme that doesn’t pay much at all
Don’t mind us, mom and dad
We’re just gonna talk to strangers
In a language only understood by those who came before us in this game

The beat of the upbeat is the beat of the Republic
Straight out of Jersey causing the butterflies in your stomach
Objectively we tryin’ to get you to let your hair down
And if you don’t got hair that’s cool let me see you Skankin’ now

I wear my heart out on my sleeve
I play my ass of trying to get you to care about me
That’s what I wanna do for a living
But even when some people see it for themselves they can’t accept that it’s a thing

Don’t mind me, mom and dad
I’m just gonna talk to strangers
In a quasi-care free get rich quick scheme that doesn’t pay much at all
Don’t mind us, mom and dad
We’re just gonna talk to strangers
In a language only understood by those who came before us in this game

The world don’t understand our struggle
Art is shunned on a daily basis, creative minds are forced to crumble
Practicality takes all precedence
And if you try to stay to the left of the dial then all you’re gonna get is the static hiss of ignorance

Don’t mind me, mom and dad
I’m just gonna talk to strangers
In a quasi-care free get rich quick scheme that doesn’t pay much at all
Don’t mind us, mom and dad
We’re just gonna talk to strangers
In a language only understood by those who came before us in this game

Take my advice you’re not alone and I know what you’re feeling now
Can’t let the sound of the people around you go and bring you down
I hear them say I’m doing nothing but throwing my life away
But I don’t care about no skeptic or what they got to say
‘Cause all it takes to make a scene is some unity
One love for all and some respect for the community
'Cause all it takes to make a scene is some unity
We gotta come together make sure we’re heard, seen?

Don’t mind me, mom and dad
(Go with the flow of the Ska-Punk sound waves)
I’m just gonna talk to strangers
(Blazin’ the trail can‘t look back gotta be brave)
In a quasi-care free get rich quick scheme that doesn’t pay much at all
Don’t mind us, mom and dad
(Go with the flow of the Ska-Punk sound waves)
We’re just gonna talk to strangers
(Dance to the beat of the heart of the new wave)
In a language only understood by those who came before us in this game

“Don’t mind us, I fucked up the words.”
