I want to be rich and I want lots of money
I don't care about clever I don't care about funny
I want loads of clothes and loads of diamonds
I heard people die while they are trying to find them

I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
'Cuz everyone knows that's how you get famous
I'll look at the sun and I'll look in the mirror
I'm on the right track and I'm on to a winner

Chorus
I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
'Cuz I'm being taken over by The Fear

Life's about film stars and less about mothers
It's all about five star and passing each other
But it doesn't matter cause I'm packing plastic
And that's what makes my life so fantastic

And I am a weapon of massive consumption
And it's not my fault it's how I'm program to function
I'll look at the sun and I'll look in the mirror
I'm on the right track and I'm on to a winner

Chorus
I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear?
'Cuz I'm being taken over by The Fear

Bridge
Forget about guns and forget a new mission
Cause I'm killing them all on my own little mission
Now I'm not a saint but I'm not a sinner
Now everything is cool as long as I'm getting thinner

Chorus
I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
I don't know how we're meant to feel anymore
When do you think it will all become clear
'Cause I'm being taken over by The Fear

    I love this song, but I think the second verse is wrong. I think its..."It's all about fast cars and CUSSING each other" I've seen it on other websites and it makes the most sense : )

    I think the meaning of this song is that she get's confused about how everybody wan't lots of money when they already got what they need, it's about beeing greedy. And that we can't see the big in beeing a mother, instead we see it in film stars "Life's about film stars and less about mothers".

    i like this song...
    and the video is very creative...
    gifts, balloons, cupcakes, etc...
    but i think the props on the video costs a lot...
