"To Look Like You" as written by and John Charles Wiltshire Butler....
We like your face
We like your style
Everything about you seems so worthwhile
We like your hair
We like your nose
Everybody gonna get one of those
The bullets for the magazine
Paparazzi shooting like soldiers in their teens
I'm just a teenage sitting in my room with the bullet for a mirror looking for a broom

To look like you
To look like you

I'm gonna burn my skin
I'm gonna cut my hair
I'm gonna grab a bit of me and stick it over there
I'm gonna take my meal of two white pills
'Cause I'm gonna look like you, yes I will
Gonna sell right out to the great white dream
'Cause I too want to be a beauty queen
I'm just a teenage sitting in my room with the bullet for a mirror looking for a broom

'Cause I'd do anything in this world to look like you
To look like you
I'd do anything in this world to look like you
To look like you, oh
To look like you
To look like you ohhh
To look like you
To look like you

I'm gonna buy that mud and apply that paint
Yes I put it on so thick I wonder why I ain't
I'm gonna buy everything that you do sell
Your clothes, your lips, your rocks, your smells
The bullets for the magazines
'Cause I want everybody to see me
I'm just a teenage sitting in my room with the bullet for a mirror looking for a broom

'Cause I'd do anything in this world to look like you
To look like you
I'd do anything in this world to look like you
To look like you, oh

We like your face, we like your style
And everything about you seems so worthwhile
We like your shoes, we like your clothes
Now we want a taste of candy going up your nose
The bullets for the magazine
'Cause I do want to be a beauty queen
I'm just a teenage sitting in my room with the bullet for a mirror looking for a broom

'Cause I'd do anything in this world to look like you
To look like you
I'd do anything in this world to look like you
To look like you, oh

    General CommentIt seems pretty obvious. Its about a teenage girl that hates how she looks and wants to look like someone famous and all the desperate measures she will attempt.
    It sounds like a stab at the stereotypical american teen girls.

    General CommentYeah I agree too, maybe not so specific about one girl but about the culture of celebrities that young girls, and to a degree guys, are falling into, and trying to look like someone else their whole young lives. I'd like to think it's more a subliminal dig at the celebrities too, and how they themselves achieve their perfect look, and end up becoming role models, that still take the candy up the nose...
