I'm sick of the truth,
I want lies.
Give me something sugarcoated and sweet,
Something that goes down easy.
I want something shiny and glamorous,
Covered with ribbons and bows.
Give me empty symbols-
Peace signs, anarchy A's
I want to pretend.
Hollywood movies, plastic surgery
Lipstick, nail polish
LSD and ecstasy
Barbie dolls and television screens.
I'm ready to embrace something fake,
I don't want the truth anymore.
I'm going to burn all my books.
