I want to be just like you

I've got these pictures keep on rolling around my head
I want to hang them on the wall above my bed
And it's so easy to just step aside
And walk in line like all the rest
But I never did well on tests

I don't watch TV cause it's just a box of lies
It makes me want to stick a toothpick in my mind
While the world goes down the drain
I eat my popcorn from the bag
Some people say that I've gone mad

You're so cool
I wanna be just like you
You're so cool

    This song is essentially describing the stereotype of an indie kid or "hipster" per say, who goes out of their way to appear different or underground.
