about

Taking a dig at the ludicrous consumer society in which humanity has trapped itself, here its absurdity is reflected back at the listener, often with a touch of sarcasm.

lyrics

Your over-the-counter counterculture -
Is counterfeit
It's just another market
For you to turn to shit

(chorus)
Con-sume! - It all comes around, then it goes around again
Con-sume! - New from the box - straight to the bin
Con-sume! - It all comes around, then it goes around again
Exhume! - That which was - and will be again -
Con-sume!

Why would the advertisers be untrue?
False profits they are not
Don't you know their biggest interest is YOU?
Turnover - take another shot

Drink this, spray that - you're irresistible
Wear this, not that - you're bound to score
Once you're snagged - is it reversible?
And does it matter if you look and smell just like a whore?

This supplement is bound to perk you up
(But tumours may result down the line)
You need an increase of at least a cup
(Let's hope the silicone don't leak into your spine)

Mass produce -
Regurgitate -
What's the use
Reverse your fate (?)

(chorus)

Take an old hit - update the beat
Rehash-repackage-resell - won't be cheap
It's not theft it's "sampling" - watch the sheep
As they fork over the green & move their feet

Bald is back!
No wait, long hair
Be yourself?
Why should you care?

Buy, sell
Sell-by

The gypsy-rockstar-heroin-look is gonna be big this year
Hang on that's just passed - what's left, "oh dear!"
Let's push the porn-goth-football-bouncer-kindergarten style
It's bound to get them talking - if only for a while

(chorus)

Fast food-PCs-cell phones-cars
Venues-movies-hairstyles-bars
TV-sex-pop-magazines
No there's no in between

It weighs less, but it costs the same
Who do you think stands to blame?
With blindfold on and wallet gaping
Sing along to the consumer raping

Portion packed religion
Salvation at a price
Porn empires worth billions
There's nothing a credit card can't slice

(chorus)
