This place feels like a catalog.
I wonder if your close-ups taken too long.
Would you like a snapshot for your mother, boy?
I don't care.
I don't want to know.
It's never been a part of me.
Just like a junkie fears the light of day,
I wonder if it's just another role we play.
Like a celebrity on minimum wage.
I never understood.
Never thought I should.
It's never been a part of me.

Still having nothing
ain't a fucking blessing.
Still it ain't a curse, though.
Cuz I've known worse.
So I'll just keep on wearing this old crown
I found on the ground.

Three cheers for anything holding us down.
Watching as aesthetic over-powers the sound.
Sort of like a martyr so proud of his picture.
I don't want to know.
Let it all go.
It's never been a part of me.

Your new found dreams are a nightmare.
And I wonder if you even know,
are you ready to be Davey
to the new Goliath?
Taking notes at your all-ages show.
It's like the marketing department
has finally figured out that 'The Pit'
can always make more room.
I'd love to sneer at the camera
for your revolution,
but I just can't afford the fucking costume.

Are you scared to go outside?
Will it cut you down to size?
Where's the do or die?
It's staring you in the eye...

    General CommentThis song is definitely one of their better songs. Although the meaning, at least to me anyways, is not as "deep" as some of the others its still a song i wish all the sold out, groupie types in the world would listen to so they could listen to themselves being mocked :Þ
