On that Fisherspooner song Emerge, does he say "hypermedia critique" or "hyper mediocrity?."

Mediocrity. Their lyrics really aren't deep enough to allow something as academic-sounding as "critique." Excuse me while I kiss this guy...
It's a shame too... I really had that song built up in my head as this clever sort of indictment of post-modern whatsit.
You don't need to emerge from nothing
You don't need to tear away
I mean, y'know. Whatever that means anyway. Changing the first line to hypermediocrity sort of ruins it for me, I guess becasue I'm not sure who they're addressing... is it themselves?
