lyrics

If I may be candid, I admit I really care
I can understand it: All the history is there

I was a kid in Greenville, NC with a subscription to Spin Magazine
I bought Fugazi's first LP cause it seemed like Rage Against the Machine
we didn't really have a scene
we read the stories on the screen
hit refresh on Kazaa streams

The truth, if you demand it, is I witlessly am scared
of goose eggs cracked one-handed, whipped and whisked into thin air

What's good enough for Travis Morrison's probably more than good enough for me
What's good enough for Zaireeka is more than I could ever have hoped to achieve

We won't fall upon our swords
we will crawl back to our Zords
assemble a Titanosaur
a Captain Planet or Triforce

We're gonna show all you dorks what that red button's for
it is a time machine
it runs on lima beans
and when the sky turns green
it is a sight to see
take me somewhere I still care to believe what I read

Matt LeMay, the Trail of Dead
ruled my 15-year-old head
I was grateful for the news
as only virgins can enthuse

Brent DiC., I beg thee hark!
something made mostly of snark
slouches slack-jawed through Grant Park
to wield its hacksaws in the dark

Ryan Schreiber, tell me true –
where are your early reviews,
to be publicly perused?
Are you ashamed of your own youth?

I expect I surpassingly will be ashamed again, oh – in a matter of months, maybe weeks
If we're gonna fall on our asses, then let's at least do it spectacularly
Let's put on our colored glasses in line for a spectacle filmed in 3D
Before they are cast into plastic bins, tossed in receptacles, lost in the streets...
Ladies and gentlemen, kindly remain in your seats.

about

Supreme Fiction Durham, North Carolina

Supreme Fiction makes music about communists, existential crises, zombies, and lovesickness (and, of course, zombie lovesickness). The Carrboro and Durham-based five-piece creates melodic, energetic pop awash in sugary hooks and group harmonies, shot through with nervous surrealism, and tempered with submerged melancholy. ... more
