"Camilla Rhodes" as written by Thomas Giles Rogers Jr., Paul Andrew Waggoner, Mark Edward Castillo, Nicholas Shawn Fletcher and Jason Schofield King....
This moment is set.
Let's make magic.
You're the number one girl;
It's time to stay at the top.

This the song of the year.
We just recorded your orgasm.
The music isn't shit anymore;
Your sexual vibe carries across the land.

Daydream sex, broken marriage fuck.
You cause this shit.
Everyone has been waiting for this moment;
For this song.

This song of the year:
"Sexy, smooth, yet sophisticated."
The music isn't shit.
It's all about image, image, image.

Fuck your song, you're looking good.
We just recorded your orgasm, and the money is rolling in.
Alone, afraid, smile glued bright.
Feeling so dirty, sexed up by human eyes.

An "artist" washed over, pulled under.
The moment is set, let's make magic.
You're the number two girl;
It's time to kill for the top.

Let's show this song of the year.
We videotaped your orgasm.
The music was never shit, we lied, we lied, as you lay, drained,
Tired and robbed of your self-expression

You're a toy, a toy for lust and greed.
Insecure depression,
The mirrors are laughing at us.
Trying to be sexy queen,

Trying to be darling.
You've pounded in her little head
Like daddy wants to pound in you.
Daydream sex, broken marriage fuck.

You cause this shit.
Makeup, bras and lingerie no need for this algebra.
Family dinners silent, speaking only to ourselves
This orgasm on the screen has molded our American dream.

    General CommentiGod is right...the song is loosely based on the character "Camilla Rhodes" from David Lynch's "Mulholland Drive." For anyone who hasn't seen the movie, it's about a girl who moves to Hollywood from Canada to live out the dream of becoming a movie star, but she has a difficult time finding work and only has a few small roles to her credit. She meets a popular movie star named "Camilla Rhodes," who she falls in love with and unintentionally becomes reliant on this girl to get her smaller roles in some of her films. Finally, Camilla announces that she is getting engaged to a man, who is also the director for several movies they have worked together in, and the main character is furious that Camilla is breaking off their "lust" affair. The main character pays a hitman to kill Camilla, but becomes regretful of her decision. She dreams up an elaborate scenario where the hit goes awry and Camilla is left with amnesia, allowing the main character to pursue her once again.

    The underlying theme of the movie suggests that "making it in Hollywood is all about who you know, and not how talented you are." I think Girl 1 in this song is supposed to be Camilla, who is making it in the entertainment world for her sex appeal.

    General CommentThis song is pretty self explanatory, but it's awesome that such a great band finally acknowledged it in song. Hopefully the masses will start to realize that it's more about sex in popular music than it is music...and that will be a great day for music.

    General Commentfirst, this movie is not just as simple as the socio-cultural commentary you think its making

    second, as stated in the name of the song, this song is based loosely off of the character camilla rhodes, in the movie mulholland drive, who used cheap backstabbing tactics such as lust to strive and reach her position

    watch the movie a couple times, understand it, and you will understand this song a lot more

    General CommentThis song is about mainstream music and how it’s more about sexual image rather than quality music. Our media and society would rather listen to an artist that gets naked on the screen rather than a boring artist who writes wonderful music. Many of these artists have a huge young following and their image just suggests that the only way person can succeed in society is to be sexual to the public eye. I know it’s a fucked up world, and don’t get me wrong, I enjoy sexual imagery as much as anyone, but I don’t think it needs to be such an accessible product for young children. The children see this sex and they think that this is what needs to be done in order be accepted, and we all know children should not look like hookers and should not have intercourse when they are 10 years old. Between the buried and me does not and will never have a certain image. We are just five normal dudes that try to write the best possible music that we can. This song goes out to all the bands that stick to their music and fans rather than an image. The title of the song is from the movie “Mulholland Drive” by David Lynch. See the movie to understand how it relates to this song.

    General CommentiGod...There's something I've been wondering about you.
    Are you actually tommy, or are you just quoting tommy from their site?
