Credit goes to KMFDM, theses are not my lyrics
All we want is a headrush
All we want is to get out of our skin for awhile
We have nothing to lose
Because we don't have anything
Anything we want anyway...

We used to hate people
Now we just make fun of them
It's more effective that way
We don't live, we just scratch on day to day

With nothing but matchbooks
And sarcasm in our pockets
And all we're waiting for is for something worth waiting for
Let's admit America gets the celebrities we deserve

Let's stop saying "don't quote me"
Because if no one quotes you
You probably haven't said a thing worth saying
We need something to kill the pain of all that nothing inside
We all just want to die, a little bit

We fear that pop-culture is the only kind of culture we're ever going to have
We want to stop reading magazines
Stop watching TV
Stop caring about Hollywood

But we're addicted to the things we hate
We don't run Washington and no one really does
Ask not what you can do for your country
Ask what your country did to you

The only reason your still alive is because
Someone has decided to let you live
We owe so much money we're not broke we're broken
We're so poor we can't even pay attention

So what do you want?
You want to be famous and rich and happy?
But you're terrified you have nothing to offer this world
Nothing to say and no way to say it
But you can say it in three languages

You are more than the sum of what you consume
Desire is not an occupation
You are ultimately thrilled and desperate
Sky high and fucked

Let's stop praying for someone to save us
And start saving ourselves
Let's stop this and start over
Let's go out
Let's keep going

This is your life
This your fucking life!
We need something to kill the pain of all that nothing inside
Quit whining you haven't done anything wrong
Because frankly you haven't done much of anything

Someone's writing down your mistakes

Someone's documenting your downfall
