All it takes is a main attraction
Scattered bones underneath the fashion
Lower life on a higher plane
That's what you want, that's what they're giving away

Photogenic, come and get it, you can have it, take it all
Schizophrenic, so sadistic, I don't know, I don't know
Politician, sick condition, dying for a curtain call
Counter culture, full of vultures, bet you think I'm what

We're going all out so get 'em up, get 'em up
And if they wanna take our picture tell 'em I don't give a fuck

No one needs you after all
That little social scene is just a hate machine
No one's here to take your call
And now your self-esteem ain't what it used to be

You've inspired
The birth of ignorance, the death of innocence
Guess who's back and mad as hell
Nowhere kids that wished you well

Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere

That new face of an old distraction
Another victim with the same reaction
A catastrophic contradiction at best
I know you're hangin' onto zeros 'cause you got nothing left

Photogenic, come and get it, you can have it, take it all
Schizophrenic, so sadistic, I don't know, I don't know
Politician, sick condition, dying for a curtain call
Counter culture, full of vultures, bet you think I'm what

We're going all out so get 'em up, get 'em up
And if they wanna take our picture tell 'em I don't give a fuck

No one needs you after all
That little social scene is just a hate machine
No one's here to take your call
And now your self-esteem ain't what it used to be

You've inspired
The birth of ignorance, the death of innocence
Guess who's back and mad as hell
Nowhere kids that wished you well

Nowhere

No one needs you after all
That little social scene is just a hate machine
No one's here to take your call
And now your self-esteem ain't what it used to be

You've inspired
The birth of ignorance, the death of innocence
Guess who's back and mad as hell
Nowhere kids that wished you well

Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere (kids)
Nowhere

    I think the song is talking about what happens when the idea of a revolution goes wrong and all you end up with is a bunch of angry fools. In this case, i think the "nowhere kids" refers to people who wanted a revolution, but realize that this is completely wrong.
