I'm a whore, can't ignore this my lot
Live in guest house of palace i bought
Guess my pimp treats me swell... I confess
I'm a whore, might as well be the best

Owned, breaking, sell the kids my soul
Owned, raking, corporation roll
Owned, breaking, sell the kids my soul
Owned, raping, taking five to one

Used to be beautiful
Never a moment dull
Surely the day will come
Put down when you can't run... anymore

I'm a whore, can't complain, this I choose
Trading pleasure for coin, kept court fool
Pay my pimp, treats me right, lets me be
I'm a whore, nothing more, somewhat free

Owned, breaking, sell the kids my soul
Owned, raking, corporation roll
Owned, breaking, sell the kids my soul
Owned, raping, taking five to one

Used to be beautiful
Never a moment dull
Surely the day will come
Put down when you can't run... anymore

Used to be beautiful
Never a moment dull
Surely the day will come
Put down when you can't run... anymore

Owned

    General CommentThis is one of the many songs on Degradation Trip about Jerry's experience in the music industry. You become a slave to that record label and before you know it, you really have lost every feeling that made you want to want to be at the top of the industry in the first place. Its a sentiment that has been echoed in songs from other artists for years, as so many have had their careers come to a screeching halt while at the top of it. Ironically enough, Jerry still dealt with this in trying to release this record in the first place. He finally found a label and they wanted to compromise his vision, only releasing the full 2-disc album as Jerry intended it to be based partly on the critical acclaim of the single disc, but even more so on the fact to cash in on Layne's death with AIC in the people's minds. And you will also notice that all those songs that are critical of the music industry and the lifestyle of being a big rock star were not found on the single disc... interesting indeed.
