Oi Polloi – Break The Mould lyrics

Another adolescent suicide - cause you don't look the part
Killed by the glossy magazines that brainwashed you from the start
Photos of models in expensive clothes
Designer haircuts and arrogant pose
Rammed down our throats time after time
Their fashion is a violent crime

Fit in - conform - pressured from the start
Freak - failure - if you don't look the part
Fit in - conform - be what you're told
Freak - failure - if you don't fit their mould

Six stone four not an ounce of fat
Tv made quite sure of that
Eat your food can't keep it down
Be like the images all around
Laxative abuse life's so unfair
Can't go out got nothing to wear
Don't look in the mirror - it never lies
Can hide your body but not the pain in your eyes

Death diet death diet death diet - anorexia

Models on the page that we've all seen
The ones on the adverts on the tv screen
How come none look like you or me?
They're trying to make us feel like freaks
But their vision of perfection at which to aim
Is an airbrushed illusion you can never attain
Enough is enough we won't swallow the lie
They're selling us a myth but we won't buy

We won't conform - we won't even start
We just don't care - if we don't look the part
We won't conform - we won't be what we're told
We just don't care - it's time to break the mould
