White Teeth Teens Lyrics

[Verse 1:]
We wouldn't be seen dead here in the day
I guess you're lucky that it's dark now
And if I like it then we'll stay
Impress the empress, take a shot now

We got the glow in our mouths
White teeth teens are...

    I think that it’s talking about how teens are crusading against everything they see wrong with the world and how they are ultimately going to save the world but even though she supports this she feels she can’t make a difference like they can

    White teeth teens are the kids who everyone wants to be. In this case, at school, the popular ones in town. They can do nothing and love it because they know they have their titles.

    I think this song is based around the cliques of schools and that she admits and submits herself as the "weirdo". It shows that she does not think if herself as the popular, funny, sort of perfect type. "The white teeth teens" are the stereotypical view on the popular kid at school and there group and how they have to keep up there 'street cred'.
