Flamboyant riches dazzle the eye
A smile worth a million words
Banal existence of trite addictions
The worshipped in pitiful herds

Why can't I be just like that?
Have all the money and all the looks
So I'll never again be ignored
I'll never need to read those books

I'd cut my hair and change my name
I'll become something everyone loves
I'll give up being unique and different
Just to try and get so far above

Why can't I just live in wealth?
Have all the better things in life
Learn to be the center of attention
Give up my name and all my strife

I'll change my appearance to look the same
Become someone who can do no wrong
To never again be myself
Forget my past and say so long

Still all those riches that please the eye
A smile that's worth so much more
Banal pleasures of trite addictions
Those worshipped soon hit the floor
