mc frontalot – indier than thou lyrics

“i have spread out my hands all the day unto a rebellious people…
stand by thyself, come not near to me; for i am holier than thou.”

i’m so indie that my shirt don’t fit.
you wonder out loud “frontalot, yo why you come so ill-equipped?”
b-b-b-b-because being all prepared to get on the mic is sellin’ out
and i’m not even about to relinquish indie clout.
i look confused, like i just got out of bed.
the rhyme style reflects this
use my overdeveloped sense of irony to deflect dis-
missiles, exploding all around me
unpromoted, don’t know how you found me
soundly situated in obscurityland
famous in inverse proportion to how cool i am
and should i ever garner triple-digit fans
you can tell me then there’s someone i ain’t indier than.

(he’s so indie.) indie i be,
ain’t an obscurer rapper out there who be indier than me.
(he’s so indie.) indie, and how!
come not near to me; for i be indier than thou.
(he’s so indie.) indie indeed,
if i were on an indie label you could call me mainstream.
(he’s so indie.) indie i am.
yo all the better for the frontalot to leverage his brand.

“i am sought of them that asked not for me;
i am found of them that sought me not…
these are a smoke in my nose.”

delving deep into my letterbox when i discovered
fanmail for mc front. it kind o’ hovered
before my vision. i made a decision to open it up.
it said “yo frontalot, you suck!”
oh whew, i was worried for a second that i’d started to earn love
seeing all my indie points burned up.
next you know i’m meeting pop stars in stretched cars
doing the soundtrack to the wendy’s tie-in with jar jar
payin’ rent, ownin’ things,
suing kazaa with my best friend sting.
it’s like a nightmare (yep) ’cause that ain’t nerdcore (nope)
and yes i’m indier than thou within my nerdcore flow.
if you’re slow on the uptake, i’ll lay it out:
hipsterism is a religion to which you gotta be devout.
you must be seen as in between unpopular and hated,
the rest get excommunicated.

(he’s so indie.) indie i be,
ain’t an obscurer rapper out there who be indier than me.
(he’s so indie.) indie, and how!
come not near to me; for i be indier than thou.
(he’s so indie.) indie indeed,
if i were on an indie label you could call me mainstream.
(he’s so indie.) indie i am.
yo all the better for the frontalot to leverage his brand.

(he’s so indie.) he’s so indie…
(he’s so indie.) so indie… so indie… so indie…
(he’s so indie.) he’s so indie… so indie…
(he’s so indie.)
