"Time to Pretend" as written by and Ben Goldwasser Andrew Vanwyngarden....
I'm feelin' rough I'm feelin' raw I'm in the prime of my life
Let's make some music make some money find some models for wives
I'll move to Paris, shoot some heroin and fuck with the stars
You man the island and the cocaine and the elegant cars

This is our decision to live fast and die young.
We've got the vision, now let's have some fun.
Yeah it's overwhelming, but what else can we do?
Get jobs in offices and wake up for the morning commute?

Forget about our mothers and our friends
We were fated to pretend.

I'll miss the playgrounds and the animals and digging up worms
I'll miss the comfort of my mother and the weight of the world
I'll miss my sister, miss my father, miss my dog and my home
Yeah I'll miss the boredom and the freedom and the time spent alone

But there is really nothing, nothing we can do
Love must be forgotten. life can always start up anew
The models will have children, we'll get a divorce,
We'll find some more models, everything must run its course

We'll choke on our vomit and that will be the end
We were fated to pretend

Yeah yeah yeah

    General Commentto me this is about the libertines.
    your typical fake rock band whose only real aspiration is to gain attention and to have the possibility to use drugs and lose themselves in a celebrity lifestyle because normal life wasn't good enough for them. and who make shitty music and/or release old albums previously available for free just to rip people off to go with it, talk about Paris as if they know what it is and fuck supermodels under the flag of being the 'working class heroes'.
