I was in the bar listening to the Hipster Radio,
Boys and girls were singing,
But frankly, I don’t know
What the fuck they were singing about,
And I said to myself, “I guess
These are impressionistic lyrics,
But frankly, I’m not impressed.”

I kinda, I sorta,
I kinda hate the ambiguous ones.

There’s a war going on, and the cops are beating people in the streets,
But all you gotta say is
“Bleat, bleat, bleat, bleat, bleat”?
Don’t you have something that you love enough,
That you wanna clearly defend?
What are you, some kinda
Closet Anglican?

I kinda, I sorta,
I kinda hate the ambiguous ones.
