"Fashion Awards" as written by and Mark O. Everett....
Let's go down to the fashion show
With all the pretty people that you don't know
We'll sit down in the velvet chairs
They'll hand awards out for best hair
And if we don't win one, well, then
We'll blow off our heads in despair
We'll blow off our heads in despair

I smell magic in the room
Flashing lights and sonic booms
Lovely saps all without a care
Nobody said that the world was fair
And if they did say so, well, then
We'll blow off our heads in despair
We'll blow off our heads in despair

Let's go down to the fashion show
With all the pretty people and piles of blow
We'll sit down in the velvet chairs
And hang on tight to our bus fare
And if it falls between the seats
We'll blow off our heads in despair
We'll blow off our heads in despair

    General CommentI'm not real sure about this one...I think it might be talking about how materialistic our world is. More specifically, I think it might be aimed at people who want to be famous. For example...

    "let's go down to the fashion show
    with all the pretty people that you don't know
    we'll sit down in the velvet chairs
    we'll hand awards out for best hair
    and if we don't win one well then
    we'll blow off our heads in despair "

    I think this refers to people who want to win so badly, that if they lose such a competition, they will freak out on themselves and become depressed. Maybe to the point of suicide.

    "nobody said that the world was fair
    and if they did say so well then
    we'll blow off our heads in despair"

    I think the last lines here mean is suggesting that people who get as high as they do in the hollywood-ish, mainstream industry never do it without cheating, sinning, and generally being a bad person. And, if the world is indeed fair, and you didn't need to do these things, the people he talks about would be so ashamed they would commit suicide.

    The last verse...I'm not so sure. Anyone have an idea about the last verse?

    General Commento man I cant believe there are so few comments on this song. I think its alot about just being unhappy and about committing suicide. "we'll blow off our heads in dispair" . Now you if ever are feeling really depressed this song and "somebody loves you" are great songs to listen to. I love this song.

    General CommentE wrote this song while watching the VH1 fashion awards.

    I love it. "we'll hand awards out for best hair
    and if we don't win one well then
    we'll blow off our heads in despair " Nice jab at those who worship fashion.
