Peroxide Girl

lyrics

You’re an unhealthy mixture of hubris and shame
You’ve got mommy to love you and daddy to blame
You’ve got inches of varnish and wind up your skirt
and you don’t mind abjection as long as it hurts
Strobe lights, porno and celebrity news
You comply with it
You get high on it
and you spend all your money on tickets to places you won’t want to go
Hey peroxide girl
Peroxide girl
I think you’ve had enough
When the music stops
you’ll give them what you’ve got
You’ll make it easy

Through thick, blank-eyed throbbing and patio lights
the radio blesses you with second sight
of cash-cattle hedonists, smothered in dreams
In expensive skins that’ll never come clean
Limos, blue eyes and expensive champagne
You won’t stop with them
You get off on them
and you spend all your money on tickets to places you won’t want to stay
Hey peroxide girl
Peroxide girl
I think you’ve had enough
When the music stops
you’ll give them what you’ve got
and you’ll make it easy
