You’re So Indie Rock (Poetry)

man playing guitar

Boy, you’re so indie rock

Loud and clear I hear it

In the cracking of your voice

The spirit cries out for new love

Beck’ning intervention from above

Somewhere deep in your noise

You’re just so indie rock

Girl, you’re so indie rock

Loud and clear just sing it

Screaming out for independence

You’re calling out for justice

Freedom from hate and malice

In the most beautiful cadence

Fantastically indie rock

In world full of cliché melody

Lack of chemistry and creativity

We’re so indie rock and roll

Straight from the depths of our souls

We were born to rise above this

Each of us meant to play a great role

Boys and girls, you’re so indie rock and roll

Scream it out; let the halls ring with beautiful noise

Don’t leave music to become a line of commercial toys

It’s meant to be all our own, make it ours again

Bring the deprivation of the blues to an end

Let’s sing from the top of our lungs and praise

The heroes of the blues of indie rock and roll
