All it takes is a main attraction
Scattered bones underneath the fashion
Lower life on a higher plain
That’s what you want
That’s what they’re givin’ away

Photogenic, come and get it
You can have it
Take it all!
Schizophrenic, so sadistic
I don’t know, I don't know
Politicians, in condition
Dyin’ for a curtain call
Counter culture, full of vultures
Bet you think I’m what!

We’re goin’ all out
But get ‘em up, get ‘em up
And if they wanna take a picture
Tell ‘em I don’t give a fuck!

No one needs you after all
That little social scene
It’s just a hate machine
No one’s here to take your call
And now your self esteem
Ain’t what it used to be

You’ve inspired
The breath of ignorance
The death of innocence
Guess who’s back and mad as hell
The nowhere kids that wished you well

Nowhere!
Kids
Nowhere!
Kids
Nowhere!

The new face of an old distraction
Another victim with the same reaction
A catastrophic contradiction at best
I know you’re hanging onto zeros
'Cause you got nothing left

Photogenic, come and get it
You can have it
Take it all!
Schizophrenic, so sadistic
I don’t know (I don’t know)
Politicians, in condition
Dyin’ for a curtain call
Counter culture, full of vultures
Bet you think I’m what!

We’re goin’ all out
But get ‘em up, get ‘em up
And if they wanna take a picture
Tell ‘em I don’t give a fuck!

No one needs you after all
That little social scene
It’s just a hate machine
No one’s here to take your call
And now your self esteem
Ain’t what it used to be

You’ve inspired
The breath of ignorance
The death of innocence
Guess who’s back and mad as hell
The nowhere kids that wished you well

Nowhere!

No one needs you after all
That little social scene
It’s just a hate machine
No one’s here to take your call
And now your self esteem
Ain’t what it used to be

You’ve inspired
The breath of ignorance
The death of innocence
Guess who’s back and mad as hell
The nowhere kids that wished you well

Nowhere! Kids
Nowhere! Kids
Nowhere! Kids
Nowhere! Kids
Nowhere! Kids
Nowhere! Kids

Nowhere!
