"Vanity" as written by and Guy B Wood Bernard Bierman....
Maybelline Queens with plastic faces.
Modeling their hips and their lips.
Bleed yourselves again
'cause your beauty is only skin deep.
Following your cold surroundings.

It's all you have
Holding on
Holding on
To nothing.
A hole you have. In your heart
It needs heart, it needs something

Wrapped up in your vanity.
Put on your mask every morning
Scrape it off at the end of a long, long day

Maybelline Queens with plastic faces.
Modeling their hips and their lips.

It's all you have
Holding on
Holding on
To nothing.
A hole you have. In your heart
It needs heart, it needs something

    General Commenthehe this is for the trendy people who feel the need to put on gallons of make-up and spend hours doing their hair to impress the world and just end up empty in the end...everyone knows someone like this so it's easy to realate to and understand what the boys are trying to explain here...people need to worry about the heart before the face

    General CommentThis is truely an awesome song. It shows meaning and heart to all those who live shallow lives and live behind "plastic faces." It sums up all that one would say to a fake and empty soul.

    General CommentDoes anyone else see a "connection" with eighteen visions here? Sure they sound nothing alike but they have many similarities. Compare the two websites. Compare the latest pink cds put out by each band. Both have songs called vanity. WEIRD!

    General Commentno. this isn't about make-up. i mean, it says it in the song... but it's not litterally talking about make-up. it's people no being who they really are and putting on.. a mask. i don't think they litteraly mean make-up. it was just a way to show this...
