lyrics

Thanks for the mirrors and the bottomless pit
Thanks for taking as much as you can get
Thank you for herding us all into line
Thank you for making us all of one mind

Thanks for the billboards and the lessons they teach
Thanks for always being just out of reach
Thanks for the credit and the wolves at the door
Thank you for leaving us hungry for more

Thanks for the models and the beautiful lies
for burning your images into our minds
Thanks for the mannequin's hard plastic smile
The profit's all yours and it's well worth your while

Thanks for the filth and the fair-weather friends
Thank you for showing us how the world ends:
Not with a whimper and not with a bang,
but with an epic contrivance and a deafening “Thanks!”

Thanks for the models and the beautiful lies
for burning your images into our minds
Thanks for the mannequin's hard plastic smile
The profit's all yours and it's well worth your while

Avarice is what you get
when you've got desire that never ends
Forget the deficit
and shop our latest fashion line
All mine...
All mine...
