Understated/Overrated


By Hepnova


On Oblivion

The End of Empire has a ring of romance
As the sun sets in the East
Somewhere in Hollywood
You wear your years like a fashion faux pas
You wanted to be a saint, a martyr
But stigmata doesnít come from razor blades
You crucify yourself for attention
You wanted to be a virgin, you wanted to be a whore
Now you donít even know who you are anymore

And you seem so understated
But you are so overrated
When you fall for celluloid heroes
And you claim to be everyday people
I donít think so

How do you take your tea at the end of the century
Do you still believe in something that will set you free
You masquerade as someone youíre not
You want the things that youíve already got
You talk about things like synchronicity
Rant about anarchy and manifest destiny
Oh, you make a good period piece
You are so ďfactory,Ē and I donít mean Andy Warhol

And you seem so understated
But you are so overrated
When you fall for celluloid heroes
And you claim to be everyday people
I donít think so
