Oh fashionista loving you mista
Relieve the pain, pull a little tighter
Dandy man workin' at typewriter
Head count eaten by the grinder

Nose to the grind for 8 hours of hate
Marching to the orders of the fashionist state
smacked out pretty doll rock-a-billy tats
Fake hair, Piercings and fries with that

A la mode a la mort
Constricted bound, tied up
A la mode a la mort
Held up with a rubber cup

Perfect shape through carnal bonsai
Spank the monkey 'til she bleeds peroxide
get in line roll a dollar debase
Turn to the right, attention deface

Transdermal luxury Premium hind
Modify the body, pacify the mind
Churned out grrl-bot in Stereo
Seasonal depression material

Vanity is all right, is really all right. Little miss world
miss big bang sweetie
Vanity is all right, is really all right. Miss universe
miss the point completely


colour me by numbers I'm bound to please
beautiful and deadly, the bomb shell sleaze
Literati breeds Thigh hi dogma
Gothed out malibu muther-fucker

    General Commentthis song is about beauty and modeling and how fucked up society views beauty and what we should look like...how we all follow what the media says and are just dumb robots with no mind of their own.

    General CommentIt's saying that, once you bind yourself to the plastic idea of what beauty is, you become something else. and there's no way out. it's not just the paris hilton or mary kate and ashley ideals of fashion either. It's the Marilyn Manson, or any fashion style. People dress in all black think they're doing it to be different. when in reality, they're just forming themselves to another style of fashion. I hate fashion too. and no one can get mad at me cuz I'm "Goth" too.
