lyrics

Their eyes tell you secrets you don’t understand
Coming from some kind of Wonderland
All would be easy if you could come with them
They know all the answers, time and again

You’re always falling behind them
You never know where to find them

Who wants you to want to be someone else?
And don’t like it when you’re content with yourself?
You don’t have to play your role in their plan

Look at those pictures, this is how to look
‘t is how to get noticed, this is the hook
They just give you hunches, but don’t tell the rules
of wonderlous beauty, the smart and the cool

You’re always falling behind them
You never know where to find them

Who want you to want to be someone else
And don’t like it when you’re content with yourself
You don’t have to play your role in their plan

Pretty faces for hire
Someone you can admire
Glossy pictures in papers, and posters on walls
They’re fixed up to their teeth and they’re thin and tall
Someone’s skillfully playing in the key of their own
on your strings of insecurity

You are supposed to play by the rules
When you’re unhappy - buy a new pair of shoes
Needs never-ending, shop ‘til you drop
If you just buy this stuff you’re finally hot

They’re playing you the trick
of unattainable visions!
