lyrics

Liars, put the hip in hypocrite
The sham in champagne
The voice inside my head that says
What do I stand to gain
Two wrongs can’t make a right
That’s why I got the blues
Two rights can make a wrong
And that’s why I gotta deal with you
You’re a cruel and shallow money trench
Where pimps and thieves run free
Liars
Just another name
For the music industry

First step is sounding good
Second’s fitting in
Third’s dealing with assholes
until your just like them
Business is a circle jerk
Stroke it til the well runs dry
Don’t matter if your spirit’s dead
Just as long as you provide
Little fish eat plankton
Bigger fish eat fish
Showbiz’ll eat a plastic bag
If there’s enough money in it
Don’t matter what you got
But who you got on board
When they start whitewashin’ your fence
The pimp will find you more
It’s a cruel and shallow money trench
Where pimps and thieves run free
Liars
Just another name
For the music industry

Funky people don’t feel the same
As the heart grows old
The pop music fades
Til we’re talking bout soul
Only some things
You can’t falsify
Old hearts laugh a little
Every time they cry
It’s a cruel and shallow money trench
Where pimps and thieves run free
Liars
Just another name
For the music industry
