"A hard piece about the mainstream. A song about people who dress, talk and think the same way. About mass manipulation, trends and meteorical hits and the people who consume it."



I see you all in the same clothes
Wearing the same dreams
Fixing the same hair

But soon you’ll be all changing together again
Another trend to follow
Another hit to share

You hate uniforms so much
You wear a new one outside the classroom
When life is based on preconceived notions
The brand in your brain matches what you consume

A million versions out of the same shaper
Lives are files in a digital whirl
And then you believe you are offline
When in the real world

Let’s try all they say
All they show, all they do
The giant brand on my shirt makes me a lot cooler than you

Let’s try all they love
All they wear, all they say
I tried to be someone different but tv was in my way

Behaved monster boys is all you dream of
They’ll never make you a woman
Cause they’re more girlish than you

Or strong college guys in his daddy’s car
You fancy fifty shades
And he a star

She’s a shooting star but doesn’t shine as the one
Who will pop up next season, my friend
The new commandment, a viral shit
You’ll never say never to a new trend

Follow everyone who texts all day long
To fill up your life’s hiatus
Then you buy your brand new must-have phone
To keep on updating your status

Let’s try all they love
All they wear, all they say
To be accepted on the herd is the only way

Let’s try all they say
All they show, all they do
The same shirt of all my friends makes me better than you

To be unique is lame
Let’s be the same
To swim against the flow is a shame
Let’s be the same
