Cool Kids

Lyrics

playShe sees them walking in a straight line,
playThat's not really her style
playAnd they all got the same heartbeat
playBut hers is falling behind.
playNothing in this world could
playEver bring them down
playYeah, they're invincible,
playand she's just in the background
playAnd she says

playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
play'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
playLike the cool kids

playHe sees them talking with a big smile
playBut they haven't got a clue
playYeah, they're living the good life
playCan't see what he is going through
playThey're driving fast cars
playBut they don't know where they're going
playIn the fast lane, living life without knowing
playAnd he says

playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
play'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
playLike the cool kids

playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
play'Cause all the cool kids they seem to get it
playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
playLike the cool kids
playAnd they said

playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
play'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
playLike the cool kids

playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
play'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to fit in
playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
playLike the cool kids

playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
play'Cause all the cool kids, they seem to get it
playI wish that I could be like the cool kids
playLike the cool kids

meaningMeaning

Sydney Sierota explained the song's meaning to The Sun. "It's about the desire to fit in," she said. "But the message is to accept yourself and that's all it takes to be cool. We see people of all ages coming to our shows, so it's really cool to see that everyone is able to connect on that level and to be able to embrace who they are."

According to the group, listeners often mishear the title as "cookies."
