We Worship Waste

Chorus:
We worship waste
Waste we welcome as wealth
Then we wonder why there's war
When we worship wealth and waste

Verse 1:
Chick pop stars cruise the bars
Showcasing lots of leg
Drunk is all the rage
'Specially when we're underage
Traffic stop, can't buy cop
Posing pretty for the judge
Court denies our pleas
Money soon sets us free

Prechorus 1:
(Yes, we're living in)
Obscene opulence
Flaunting all our fame in your face
(Yes, we're living in)
Obscene opulence
All our flaws above the law
Cash grants us this grace

(Repeat chorus)

Bridge:
All the world sees these decadent divas
As symbols of what they perceive as The American Way
Sex and drugs and power and money deceive us
Then we wonder why we're bullseye for their jealous hate

Verse 2:
Don't deny me my SUV
Three ton muscle of steel
To take the kids to school
'Cause buses are so uncool
“Gimme a home where buffalo roam”
Possible with all this space
Except they couldn't steer
Through all the 'lectronic gear

Prechorus 2:
(Yes, we're living in)
Obscene opulence
Flaunting all our gain in your face
(Yes, we're living in)
Obscene opulence
Attitude “Greed is good”
Cash grants us this grace

(Repeat chorus)
