Hey vanity, this vile's empty, so are you
Hey glamorous, this vile's not god anymore....yeah...

Speak, i don't get it
Should i ignore the fasion
Or go buy the book
I don't want it,
I just want your eyes fixated on me
Coming back aaah
Coming back around the fur

Prostitute, climb back down from the floor
Please don't fuck around and die like this cause i love - her

Speak, i don't get it
Should i ignore the fasion
Or go buy the book
I don't want it,
I just want your eyes fixated on me
Coming back aah
Coming back around the fur

Fur the fur
Speak speak you're so bad to me
I don't want to get dressed over anyway
Come on have some fun
I'm innocent, drop your weapons and come on,
You're a liar you're a liar and i don't care about aaah

    THIS SONG, is not about prostitution, vain people or attention seekers, blah, blah, blah... it's about individuals who hide behind vanity and aesthetic perfections for a chance to be noticed by those who cannot see true beauty. And they are disgusted by this and by themselves and are putting an end to what is cliche and morally wrong to the confidence of individualism. Fabrication is beautiful lie. The prostitute is symbolic to how society fakes itself into the hearts of shallow monsters who focus on outter beauty, explaining that to someone else, that individual is special because of who they are on the inside. Good song... but... i do love the vanity. Long live.
