lyrics

Whatever did happen
To beauty and truth
The introspective
Disaffected youth

They can turn a phrase
How nothing’s really free
And still be so amazed to be
Proven right constantly

All that we want is a board beneath our feet
All that we’ve got is a pop song on repeat

Yeah we’re genius
Yeah we’re really clever
Trade our wastelands in
For Surf Whatever

We rage against contraptions
That break what we won’t mend
Sunscreen and distractions
Save some sand for all our friends

Now the ocean is black, it’s surely a fluke
Call Nat Geographic, and your congressman too

Yeah we’re genius, yeah we’re really clever
Trade our wastelands in
For Surf Whatever
Yeah we’re flying into never-never
Blue, green, black and grey,
And Surf Whatever

So who’s gonna save the world
So who’s gonna stop the ruin
We’ve got a lot of dreams
But we don’t know what we’re doing
Who’s gonna stop the clock
Who’s gonna keep it running
Who’s gonna weigh our hearts
And tell us where they’re wanting

Now whatever happened
To taking the lead
It fell out of fashion
If not in word, then in deed

The Arctic is our wave, gonna be a big one
Load up your friends, go ahead and bring your guns
Let liberty echo and let freedom ring
And don’t your ever leave this beach for anything

Yeah we’re genius, yeah we’re really clever
Trade our wastelands in
For Surf Whatever
Yeah we’re flying into never-never
Blue, green, black and grey,
And Surf Whatever

The Artic is our wave
Surf Whatever
Dancing on our grave
Surf Whatever
Yeah we’re flying into never-never
And I can’t get away
