We're on our knees
With our fingers in our throats
Fit into the smallest jeans

We're on our knees
Counting carbs and calories
Slaves to this routine

It's such a shame
Diseased -- the city is spread by magazines
And movie scenes almost good
Welcome you to Hollywood
Diseased -- the city is
We're flying high on hopes and dreams
And crash land to reality

Killing yourself is an addiction
We starve ourselves until our next audition

It's such a shame
Diseased -- the city is spread by magazines
And movie scenes almost good
Welcome you to Hollywood
Diseased -- the city is
We're flying high on hopes and dreams
And crash land to reality, reality

Dreaming of beauty
I'm dreaming of seeing them
Dreaming of beauty
I'm dreaming of being them

Diseased -- the city is spread by magazines
And movie scenes almost good
Welcome you to Hollywood
Diseased -- the city is
We're flying high on hopes and dreams
And crash land...

    General CommentWe're on our knees
    With our fingers in our throats
    To it into the smallest jeans

    We're on our knees
    Counting carbs and calories
    Slaves to this routine

    It's such a shame
    Diseased -- this city is spread by magazines
    And movie scenes that almost could
    Welcome you to Hollywood
    Diseased -- this city is
    We're flying high on hopes and dreams
    And crash land to reality

    Killing yourself is an addiction
    We starve ourselves until our next audition

    It's such a shame
    Diseased -- this city is spread by magazines
    And movie scenes that almost could
    Welcome you to Hollywood
    Diseased -- this city is
    We're flying high on hopes and dreams
    And crash land to reality, reality

    Dreaming of beauty
    I'm dreaming of seeing
    Dreaming of beauty
    I'm dreaming of being them

    Diseased -- this city is spread by magazines
    And movie scenes that almost could
    Welcome you to Hollywood
    Diseased -- this city is
    We're flying high on hopes and dreams
    And crash land...

    Song Meaningthis song is about the shallowness of hollywood and the expectations people think they have to live up to. i guess it doesnt have to be specically hollywood. maybe the entertainment industry.

    Song MeaningI think this song a wake up call to Hollywood relise that they destroying Hollywood's image by making everyone obsessed about their weight and their looks.
    But moving on...
    I think this is about an actress/actor battling with eating disorder, he/she constently starves himself by thinking 'if I'm skinny, I might get a acting job.'
    But anyone could've told you this, so I don't see the point of writing this.
