Monochrome delivers a witty and refreshing critique of the rise of so called “unique” hipsters and indie rock, while reaffirming true individualism.

 

“Monochrome”
Music and Lyrics by: Walter Scarborough

When everyone’s favorite thing
Is to brag how they’re unique
I’m drowning in a sea of monochrome

Like an Indie Rock zebra herd
Vintage irony from the future
Living a past you don’t deserve

I remember trying oh so hard
Everything I could to be a star
We are all hypocrites
From what I’ve seen
Living well is just the right
Revenge for me
The right revenge for me

Popular means many things
Yet you act like analog kings
Cliché still sounds like what it means

Judge me anyhow anyway
You say things that you shouldn’t say
Or is that the old school way?

I remember trying oh so hard
Everything I could to be a star
We are all hypocrites
From what I’ve seen
Living well is just the right
Revenge for me
The right revenge for me

When everyone’s favorite thing
Is to brag how they’re unique
I’m drowning in a sea of monochrome

Like an Indie Rock zebra herd
Vintage irony from the future
Living a past you don’t deserve

I remember trying oh so hard
Everything I could to be a star
We are all hypocrites
From what I’ve seen
Living well is just the right
Revenge for me
The right revenge for me
