Individual Project 2009
Lyrics:
World War 2's over now, postwar prosperity
GI Bill for the vets is sure to make them happy
Baby boom's coming soon
The population will grow
Economy's going crazy, yeah

It's a white flight away from crowded cities
It's the Levittown dream for everybody
It's that two-car garage, it's just so tempting
Homes too close for comfort

Interstate Highways
mean that everyone commutes
all the backyards
are full of pools and barbecues
and brand new strip malls
spread everywhere that you can see
Let's increase our oil dependency!

You know you're in Suburbia
when all the houses look alike, Suburbia
Where your collar must be white, Suburbia,
where the money isn't tight
Suburbia, Suburbia

Women back in the home
except for service jobs
Middle class on the rise
affluence advertised
Doctor Spock gives advide
to moms of baby boomers
Spoiled brats get what they want, yeah

It's a white flight away from crowded cities
It's the Levittown dream for everybody
It's that two-car garage, it's just so tempting
Homes too close for comfort

Interstate Highways
mean that everyone commutes
all the backyards
are full of pools and barbecues
and brand new strip malls
spread everywhere that you can see
Let's increase our oil dependency!

You know you're in Suburbia
when all the houses look alike, Suburbia
Where your collar must be white, Suburbia,
where the money isn't tight
Suburbia, Suburbia

This 1950s trend would last
until today, cuz we're stuck in the past
cuz almost every single Beckman kid
lives in a pre-zoned neighborhood

It's a white flight away from crowded cities
It's the Levittown dream for everybody
It's that two-car garage, it's just so tempting
Homes too close for comfort

Interstate Highways
mean that everyone commutes
all the backyards
are full of pools and barbecues
and brand new strip malls
spread everywhere that you can see
Let's increase our oil dependency!

You know you're in Suburbia
when all the houses look alike, Suburbia
Where your collar must be white, Suburbia,
where the money isn't tight
Suburbia, Suburbia
