"Reinvent Myself" as written by and David Healey Bryn Fowler....
I can't stomach this variety
My plane is under my feet
And I'm tired of your commercial meat
And I can't follow ideology
I'm proud of my attendancy
I wear my jacket of insanity
And I ain't gonna fall into the gap
That kinda life is just a baited trap
Since when was fashion a necessity
I don't see anything we really need

So why should I reinvent myself
When the world that I see
It will not change for you and me

I can't follow our democracy
They don't practice but I tell you they preach
They don't learn but still they think they can teach
And I think Mr Blair is causing anarchy
He can hear him singing God Save the Queen
With a gaze just like a sex machine
I'm sick and tired of all the hate and lies
That seem to hang around the suit and ties
I hate the underworld and I'll agree
I don't see anything we really need

So why should I reinvent myself
When the world that I see
It will not change for you and me

So why should I reinvent myself
When you take more than you need
When this world is built on greed

Sometimes I get at all just can't sleep

So why should I reinvent myself
When the world that I see
It will not change for you and me

So why should I reinvent myself
When you take more than you need
In this world that's built on greed

    General CommentCouple of corrections- its "Sometimes I get SO TIRED I just can't sleep and its "with the PISTOLS just like a sex machine".
    Anyway love the song, especially the line "And I think Mr. blair is causing anarchy YOU (correction!) can hear him singing god save the queen with the pistols like a sex machine" Sorry I know im nit-picking a bit on the corrections.

    General CommentThis song reminds me of Hedi Slimane. He sent it to a journalist as an answer once, and the lines,
    "Since when was fashion a necessity
    I don't see anything we really need

    So why should I reinvent myself
    When the world that I see
    It will not change for you and me"
    make this a very tongue-in-cheek choice indeed.
    It's about not bothering to fit in with the rest of the world, a conscious choice not to change, because the world is rather nasty and not worth the trouble. Being yourself for all the wrong reasons, basically.
