A Parasite And Other Memories

 

“A Parasite And Other Memories” by World of Skin from Ten Songs For Another World

“Now you imitate and you vulgarize
Everything you’ll never be
And you’re rewarded by the crowd for your fake and ugly mediocrity
So go, fat parasite, go
But be sure to be obscene
Go lick the poison from your fat fingers
And suck your purple money clean

And you who were so careful
Not to every really cross the line
Your violence was insipid
And your bliss, it was plagiarized
So go, you never knew me, go
Be sure to make the scene
Go mistake me for a fool
Now your memory’s forever tainted to me”
