Why do all the tourists surrounding us have 89 balloons on their backs?

What's the point of the balloons?

"We live in a world overrun by tourists
Tourists, eighty-nine flowers on their back
Inventors of the accu-jack
They look at life through a pocket camera, what?
No flash again?
They're all a bunch of double drags who teach their kids that love is bad
Half of the staff of their brain is on vacation
Mama, are you listening?
We need a new breed, leaders, stand up, organize
Don't let your children watch television until they know how to read
Or else all they'll know how to do is cuss, fight and breed
No child is bad from the beginning, they only imitate their atmosphere
If they're in the company of tourists, alcohol and U.S. history
What's to be expected is three minus three, oh, absolutely nothing"

Now I want to know why 89 flowers are on their backs? hmmm

They are not aware of the real world.
