or
The Hold Steady

He was drawn-up in the dark up in Penetration Park
He says he's got your medication
She was sitting on the edges of his vision trying to start a revolution
But he's done with all the parties, he's covered in contusions
Your life leaves life lines, your rug leaves bright bruises
She said she was cruising but she came back all proud and out of focus with a cool car,
Drank and broke us

Guys go for looks, girls go for status
There are so many nights where this is just how it happens
Guys go for looks, girls go for status

He was dreadlocked in the dorms in the Colorado corn
He says he's got your vegetation
She was sitting on the edge of the bed smoking trying to reach emancipation
And he's done with DVDs, he's fully entertained
He's bleaching out the blood stains, he's got diamonds in the drain
She said that she was coming but she wasn't, just make hard facts noises
It kind of sounded like a locus

Guys go for looks, girls go for status
There are so many nights where this is just how it happens
Guys go for looks, girls go for status

It was song number three on John's last CD,
"I'm going to make it through this year if it kills me"
And it almost killed me
And song number four on that thirsty floor, you want the scars but you don't want the war
Now that's just hardcore
These kids are clever to the core

Guys go for looks, girls go for status
Guys go for looks, girls go for status
Guys go for looks, girls go for status
