In One Ear Lyrics

They say that we ain't got the style,
We ain't got the class
We ain't got the tunes
That's goin' to put us on the map
And I'm a phony in disguise,
Tryin' to make the radio
I'm an anti-social anarchist
Who sounds like so and so

    This awesome song is about the fact that nowadays, people judge others too much to actually see any worth in their accomplishments. Cage The Elephant are saying that they don't care about all of the stereotypes, insults and scrutiny they have thrown at them, and that they really only care about the music and their fans. As they say:
    "Here's the moral to the story,
    We don't do it for the glory.
    We don't do it for the money,
    We don't do it for the things.
    So all the critics who despise us,
    Go ahead and criticize us.
    It's your tyranny that drives us,
    Adds the fire to our flames.

    And it goes in one ear
    And right out the other.
    People talkin' shit
    But you know I never bother.
    It goes in one ear,
    And right out the other.
    I'm only playin' music
    'Cause you know I fuckin' love it!"

    This song is about doing what you believe in and not letting any thing or anyone get you down. Its saying that you cant do anything for the money or the fame, but you have to do it for yourself. Some people look at this music and see profanity, but these songs have a lot of meaning, and you can tell it was written from the heart.
