I'd be thinner, I'd be taller
Go clubbing in my collar
With skin pale as a moth
Dressed in black, I'd go creepin'
While the normal folk are sleepin'
If I only were a goth
With my hair up, I'd look fancy
Like Siouxie and the Banshees
With silk or velvet cloth
Dressed in boots, never sandals
And the room would be lit with candles
If I only were a goth

Yes I'd wanna die
From the bottom of my heart impure
Would I like another clove? Well, sure
And after that, we'll go listen to The Cure

I'd pretend to be a vampire
Like stories 'round the campfire
I'd suck your bloody froth
Yes the thing I'd be best at
Is impersonating Lestat
If I only were a goth

In my casket purse I'm toutin'
Einsturzende Neubauten
And pagan hymns to Thoth
Yes the world would be depressing
Over death I'd be obsessing
And this corpse I'm undressing
Would be sexier, I'm guessing
With my diet I'd get scurvy
And I'd worship Peter Murphy
If I only were a goth

    General CommentHaha.
    This song rocks my socks off.

    First of all, Thou shalt not is brilliant.

    Secondly, This song is Hilarious.
    It makes fun of our teenage culture, well atleast the pre-emo generation.
    And, of course, gotta love the mention of The Cure. I seriously have friends who do this. Walk around looking like vampires, on vampire freaks who WORSHIP the cure.

    *sigh.
    Gotta love todays culture
