Great call on "Girls Like Status". I was listening on Spotify and basically just build a playlist of their catalog. That song wasn't on it until now. There are a couple lines that really stand out in that one. One in particular made me LOL. Good shit.

'And blackened foil is like boils and hail/

We're dust in the spotlight/

We're just kinda floating

You want the scars but you don't want the war/

That's just hardcore/

These kids are clever to the core/

Guys go for looks, girls go for status

The same guy buys another round
To let her know he's interested.
The nights go on forever now
But the morning comes up quick.
You've got to loosen your grip.

Never let them tie you up
It's a big city, there's a lot of love.
Salted rims and frosted mugs.
You gotta get back out there.

Once you're out there everything is possible.
Even the bad nights they aren't all that terrible.
Loosen your grip, it feels so incredible.
Let the city live your life for you tonight.

We were kids in the crowd, now we're dogs in this war
We were wasps with new wings, now we're bugs in the jar

Whenever I see this thread at the top of the page with some new overwrought shitty lyrics I'll make sure to give you my reaction via gif.
