and we could try
to
copy the people we'd love to
be and then we would be
them, i suppose
we could have big fashion shows
and big mansions
and give 1 million dollars to the poor
and make sure it becomes
front page headlines

but then, you see, its something
of a trade, that for your
soul
and believe me, the world would
love to have it
and sell it for dirt cheap
and

believe me, it'll be alright

because we could mask the sadness
with plastic surgery.
