Indy Kidz Lyrics

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...

    This song is sort of a wake up call to all of the “oh so original” Indy kids, how they think they’re acting different and on their own when they’re really just fitting the mold of all of the other Indy kids. All of the lyrics are examples of what all of them are doing, he’s being sarcastic about it like he’s doing it, if it’s hard to tell just think about it with his interpretation in mind and you can see how it’s talking about this.
    With the whole “I gotta go down to the schoolhouse to get some shoes and the right haircut” etc, the reason he says it in such a weird voice is because he’s mocking the people that mock the “normal people” because really there are becoming the new “normal people”.
    A quote that might help with this theory is one in Stranger Things where Johnathan tells Nancy “Well, I was just starting to think you were okay. I was thinking, ‘Nancy Wheeler, she’s not just another suburban girl who thinks she’s rebelling by doing exactly what every other suburban girl does, until that phase passes and they marry some boring one-time jock, who now works sales and they live out a perfectly boring little life at the end of a cul-de-sac.” Just use this basic idea but replace Nancy, or the suburban girl, for Indy kids.
    Hopefully that was helpful^^

    So obviously; this song is about hipsters in a mocking way. Hence the title, Indy Kidz, which is a "cooler" way of spelling Indie Kids.
