"Make a Face Like You Mean It (Vampires)" as written by Aaron James Babcock, Collin Rigsby and Timothy Ryan Skipper....
Don't bother to show integrity,
It never sells on the market.
Chain all the world down.
Don't fuss with your creativity,
They never asked for an artist.
Take all the heart out.
All the kids want to rock,
But they don't want to sit through another boring chorus.
One or two at the top might give you a shot,
But they don't want to risk any losses.
Take all the heart out.

The vampires want you blood.
You can't always get what you want, but they do.
You can't always get what you want, but they know:
The truth is what they want it to be.

Drop by drop.
The camera flash casts shadows from their egos.
Sing a song like you wrote it.
Puppets don't think, puppets just dance.
Make a face like you mean it.

    General Commentthis song is about the corrupt nature of the music industry.
    it discusses how the music industry is only out for money... they aren't looking to make a difference or present an opinion or spark a change... they want a simple hit.
    also, "puppets don't think... puppets just dance" refers to exactly what the leaders in the industry are looking for.

    General CommentEven broader than just the music industry, this song could refer to the business world in general. Big businesses have a huge impact on society, politics, your lives and mine. They can get what they want and define truth how they choose. We're just their puppets, and our integrity and creativity doesn't mean a thing to them.
