Has anyone else caught the underlying themes in this song? It's quite sarcastic in fact, like most of First Impressions. Julian claims he has nothing to say, when in fact he mentions more in this song than most bands do in an entire album. He said the only things left of the American Indian genocide are camp names. He said that rude and heartless children are raised to be soldiers, when God(art) is in front of their faces. And lastly he mentions that all the rantings of politics and human conditions aren't for the Strokes; their for other bands(you) to explain/figure out. Most of First Impressions exhibits subliminal themes, like a Kubrick film, which makes it perhaps the most intriguing album I've ever heard.
