lyrics

Fold my hand and flag down a plane
Red and blue lights flash in my brain
I could stick it out in the urban fog or
I could fill my life with the SkyMall catalogue… Oh oh oh

Tradin’ fadin’ street lamps for the palm trees
Inner city pressure for 82 degrees
Broken-down mothers for the heated pool
An absence of fathers for the detached and cool…. Ah ah ah

I think I might go for a swim
While my friends lose hope and take it on the chin

I pretend to live in the city
Where the prostitutes are far from pretty
But truly I am off on beaches
Sipping drinks with stunning features

I think I saw someone famous
They told me that the money’s aimless
I think I saw one of my neighbors
They told me they’re living off of vapors …. Oh oh oh

I think I might go for a swim (I want to see beautiful people)
While my friends lose hope and take it on the chin (I want to see beautiful people)

There’s one difference between your life and mine;
I can trade up any time I like
‘cause I’m white and I’m middle class
I’m white and I’m middle class
I’m white and I’m middle class
I’m white and I’m middle class

Think I might go for a swim
While my friends lose hope and take it on the chin
