Song by Jordan Scott

Music by Moniker

Original demo on the Moniker EP, summer 2015

lyrics

O, I was born disco
But then the weights came
Like so much rain

From endless expanses
To numbered avenues
Never having a clue
Always 2 steps up and 2 steps down

I had never called it indie
It was only a melody
And a dancing beat

But O what it meant to me, messages sent to me
In codes I would never have tried to pretend I know
Immortality bestowed by posterity
I will sing my heart out til it's on my sleeve
I was born disco, but...

Like a MacArthur?
Or a Patton on the playground
Say you were just fooling around

So you could be kind to me
Or you could be blind to me
But spare me the humanity

I never called it indie
It was only a melody
And a dancing beat

But O what it meant to me, messages sent to me
In codes I would never have tried to pretend I know
Immortality bestowed by posterity
But give me a waltz or a mixtape of schmaltz
Like a father figure who'll be home for dinner
I will sing my heart out til it's on my sleeve
All of my senses before my intelligence
Four on the floor til my heart beats no more
I was born disco, but now I....I don't know
