Song Description

Laidback blues-rock song from Worldview's "Our Condition" album. About celebrity, advertising and the media. Satire, social commentary. Written, performed and recorded by Oliver Shaw.

Lyrics

They say the first step to recovery
Is owning up to your dependency
But you're not going to hear a sound from me

And I like to think I'm pretty clever
But it hooks me on some deeper level
Their streaming feed of cheap sensation
Is speaking to my isolation

Yeah I buy into it anyway
I buy into it everyday
I buy into it anyway
Cos it's what I need to get by

They say the first step to recovery
Is facing up to your dependency
But I could drop this anytime I please

But I still haven't found a reason
Or something easier to believe in
The tabloid junk that runs in our veins
Will carry us through one more dry day

And I buy into it anyway
I buy into it everyday
I buy into it anyway
I buy into it every day

Popstar child, with her smile so bright
Give me more of the same, give me more of the same
Smile so bright, that it hurts my eyes
Give me more of that pain, I want more of that pain

And it reminds me of the chicken and the egg
Cos are they putting these desires into my head
Or only tapping into what's already there?

Well I do believe I'm being exploited
But I choose to fill the consent form in
When there's an itch you have to scratch it
And this brings instant satisfaction

So I buy into it anyway
Yeah I buy into it everyday
I buy into it anyway
I'll buy into it anyday
Cos it's what I need to get by
Yeah it's what I use to get high
And it's all that brings me alive
