Why choose to be you?
When you see what could come to you?
When you pretend
When you be them
I do the things I hate
I am the people I hate
Look what I have gained
All because of popularity

Selling out is fun
I especially liked the money
Selling out is fun
Now look at our latest
Release was aimed at you
Persnality is through you
We are only what we sell you
Buy our next record.
Send us more money.
Thank you to the Non-thinking majority.
For making it possible for us.

Why choose to be you?
When you see what could come to you?
When you pretend
When you be them
I do the things I hate
I am the people I hate
Look what I have gained
All because of popularity

When we followed what we know is true.
We lived like slobs...just like you
Our adoring fan who come to see
Us play a shoe before people start to think.
You lost what you had.
Gained what could be bought.
You weren't a sellout because your popular.
Your popular because you sold out.
I read a seldom lyric sheet.
All I think about is the last piss I took.
When I read real lyrics.
They do make one think.
Yours can be classified as completely nothing.

You call your manager.
Ask him what sells.
Hes tired of making decisions for you.
Maybe you should think yourself.

Selling out is fun.
Selling out is fun
Happened in a BLINK of an eye
That 182 will pass then precede to die.

    General CommentWhat the fuck is persnality? It sounds like a purse with, what, nality? or nailing as in all you even care about is nailing the purse? This is just so rediculous I thought about contributing a thinking minority post, but decided against it for it did not provoke any sort of insult, ridicule, banter, rant or fucking rave that George W. Bush is deserving of other than the aforementioned in critique of the band that I have not listened to but sounds like with their "name" they sold out to the political game as a typical american labour party movement. And that's it kidz...

    If you could not guess, my true intention is to be forever de-crypted from the face of javascript as long as I live and to be forever publically banned from ANY place I have ever accidently read or contributed nonsense to including my own life.

    And with 182 blinks of an eye I wish to make my own decisions without derision. This is fun.
