Primed so meticulous, stripped down to the nucleus
Of everything that sickened me
Before I started viewing this
I've read it in the glaze painted vacant gaze
Of this shell of a human before me
We thank the Lord for the ego
Afforded the shallow now

Such handsome propaganda
Truly business accused of show
And they're cueing the applause sign now
Pretty little casualties
In temporary tragedies
Born from the same place self-doubt grows
Cold and hollow red carpet ready pose
But around here "Diva" ain't much of a compliment

Celebrate the undescerning
Don't question what you're learning
Crank the violin 'cause Rome is fucking burning now
Culture shown in effigy
Presented as "Celebrity"
Like tiny boxes crying out "Believe Me"
But careful there, honey
'Cause your roots are showing now

What a cherished myth of marketing
Propaganda with complection so clear
Tomorrows insecurities playfully draped
In the second-hand styles of next year
And it's so hard to look away
Although somehow harder yet to stare
These picture perfect pawns are salesmen now
Like carpetbaggers shilling their wares
And in reality I really don't care
Because asshole's a fashion
I never could afford to wear
