  • Urban Hipster, the new gangster frontin' by the club
    New wave mannequins packin' haircuts, instead of packin' guns
    Magazines form overseas, won?t teach you how to feel
    They trade in their hearts for indie rock charts to tell them what is real

    When did they assume? Putting on a costume
    Gave them a right to ostracize
    Out of the woodwork art aficionados
    Answer one question?

    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    Between your fashion and your mind
    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    'Cause some of us aren't blind!
    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    To be your self is not a crime
    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    'Cause some of us aren't blind!
    She sells street cred with no smile, at the local record store
    She's acting the role and dressing the part, pretending to be bored
    The truth about conformity, is it bites without a sting
    Trends come and go, but when your alone it doesn't mean a thing

    When did they assume? Putting on a costume
    Gave them a right to ostracize
    Out of the woodwork art aficionados
    Answer one question?

    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    Between your fashion and your mind
    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    'Cause some of us aren't blind!
    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    To be your self is not a crime
    Where is the line? Where is the line?
    'Cause some of us aren't blind!

    Here today, but forgotten tomorrow!
