White Teeth Teens - Lorde



The Experience: We're not in the cool crowd of molars blinking, White Teeth Teens. But that doesn't mean we're not happy.  
Lyric Video: 


The Meaning of White Teeth Teens is revealed in the lines the way they seem is something else, it's in the blood. Their molars blinking like the lights, in the underpass where we all sit. White Teeth Teens are the rich crowd, the ones with the shining perfect-molar smile. We're not in that crowd. We just sit in the underpass while they glitter past. But Lorde goes on, where we all sit, and do nothing, and love it. Our smiles aren't camera-perfect, but they are true. We're happy, the snobs usually have to fake it. That's why Lorde said I tried to join but never did. It wasn't worth it.

Ask Yourself: Am I worried about which social circle I am in?


LYRICS:
We wouldn't be seen dead here in the day
I guess you're lucky that it's dark now
And if I like it then we'll stay
Impress the empress, take a shot now

We got the glow in our mouths

White teeth teens are out
White teeth teens are up for it

I know you love it when the hairpins start to drop

I like your reckoning, but we got our methods
And there's nothing here to stop, to stop this

If you want we'll help tonight to split his schemes

Give the bruises out like gifts
You'll get the picture of your dreams
I won't be smiling 'bout the notes
From my admirers fill my dashboard just the same

We got the glow in our mouths

White teeth teens are out
White teeth teens are up for it

I know you love it when the hairpins start to drop

I like your reckoning, but we got our methods
And there's nothing here to stop, to stop this

I'll let you in on something big

I am not a white teeth teen
I tried to join but never did
The way they are, the way they seem is something else, it's in the blood
Their molars blinking like the lights, in the underpass where we all sit
And do nothing
And love it

And everything works out so good
I wear the robe like no one could

We got the glow in our mouths

White teeth teens are out
We got the glow in our mouths
White teeth teens are out
