about

"30 Cents" couples witty lyrics with a busy bassline and analogue synths to create a new-wave hybrid of indie rock and 80s alternative.

lyrics

30 Cents

I walk down the street and I talk to myself
Glancing over my shoulder… I really feel swell
I’ve mastered the art of staring at strangers
If they look at me that way

When I touch foreign objects, no, my hands don’t feel clean
I’m sitting at a stop sign waiting for the light to turn green
I wanna go back where everything made sense
Even if it costs me twenty three bucks and thirty cents

Laa, Laa-da-da-da
I had a dream that I lost my mind
Laa, Laa-da-da-da

I feel so delighted I can’t help but yell
This night buzz I’m feeling is unparalleled
I’ve mastered the art of staring at strangers
When they look at me that way

When I touch foreign objects, no, my hands don’t feel clean
I’m sitting at a stop sign waiting for the light to turn green
I wanna go back where everything made sense
Even if it costs me twenty three bucks and thirty cents

Laa, Laa-da-da-da
I had a dream that I lost my mind
Laa, Laa-da-da-da

The thing about most people is they speak until they wheeze
If I stay quiet it brings out uncertainties
Focus, fixation
Sarcasm subdued
What am I really thinking?
Oh… You’d shoot me if you knew

When I touch foreign objects, no, my hands don’t feel clean
I’m sitting at a stop sign waiting for the light to turn green
I wanna go back where everything made sense
Even if it costs me twenty three bucks and thirty cents

Laa, Laa-da-da-da
I had a dream that I lost my mind
Laa, Laa-da-da-da

Laa, Laa-da-da-da
I had a dream that I lost my mind
Laa, Laa-da-da-da
