Lair queen likes to prey
On lolly boys in their cage
Empress tease, pink and rats
Breaking hearts to the bank

Keep the car running
The only thing you're wanting, is
Cold hard cash

Kaltes hartes bargeld

Lynch mob love, broken dolls
Float to the top, of the bowel
Taste in girls, young and smashed
Perversion lies, dormant

Mother dear mother, gotta keep gunning for
Cold hard cash

Alice in vulgar land
Make the mascara bleed
Cry victim cry victim cry
God knows it sells CDs

All dancing, loud singing
Not realize they're just play things
Split open laid to waste
Sprayed across your rock star face

Glamour glamour road kill, all you want is... Cold hard cash

    General CommentI think this song is bashing singers like Lady Gaga, Brittany Spears, Miley Cyrus, etc., who aren't really "artists", but cash cows. I also think they're bashing gold diggers.

    My InterpretationI think it's about famous people who take advantage of their fans and pretend to genuinely care about making music, when they only truly care about making money. Could be wrong though.

    General CommentOops, I thought this was ditch the rest. Well this song is equally as good. I think it's hinting at mainstream trends such as emo and subsequently attacking it for being plastic and fake.

    General CommentI think it's about Emilie Autumn. Her fans are called Plague Rats,and she's often seen in the color pink. Also, her Crumpets are a group of girls whose characters have messed up histories, like cannibalistic tendencies, and they're all from an insane asylum. EA has been known to sing about child rape ("Gothic Lolita") and similar topics. This is why she's famous, and what she's known for, and what sells her CDs and books.
