"Material Boy" as written by and Fredrik Larzon Mathias Farm....
I'm leaving the Wat. Top Buddhism no longer loyal
I'm breaking my heart
As my compassion to the third world turned to greed
Bye, bye real McCoy, no ideals as if I was royal
Now, I'm a material boy
There's nothing in the world I don't think I need

Now I'm shopping, I'm not stopping
There will always be new stuff to buy
And I'll expand my needs somehow

I bought an iMac and mouse, a phone to go with my new spirit
Next step might be a house, six bedrooms and a pool just for me
I will live like a Tsar, the beggars chant won't hear it
I'll have a boat, new TV and car
And in my mouth a fat Cuban cigar

Now I'm shopping, I'm not stopping
There will always be new stuff to buy
And I'll expand my needs somehow
I'll expand my needs somehow I swear

    General CommentThis song is about materialism. Something that is prevalent in post-millenium America.

    General Commentit's about someone who chooses to fill his/her voids by buying material goods. i guess it's something anyone can relate to. i especially like the line "now i'm shopping, i'm not stopping".
