Funny they fight for no cause
Only to hide in those bars
And scoff from their L.A. lofts at smoke laws
The hipsterish trends of irony permeate their fashion and living but it only works in those bar scenes where other hipsterish trends reflect themselves upon each other. It’s basically a “scene”.
Earlier in the verse it was stated their money was tight but now you see they live in Los Angeles = irony.
They complain about “smoking” laws but they are in fact smoking freely at a bar = irony.
This song is about wealthy/trendy people who absorb the “aesthetic” of counter cultures, usually born in lower income communities, turn it into a trend thus lowering it’s meaning to something easily marketable and ironic- AND how their are so many of these people, it makes me feel lonely.
This song is about how hard it is to find yourself in it all.
The “gentrification” of culture.
