  • Dogs at the footsteps
    Transforms the model teen
    Glamour automaker
    Disguise the money
    A live assembly line
    Your face will never be the same
    Who could ask for more?
    Who would ask for more?

    Come, see how it's done
    Eating every mistake
    Your eyes are dynamite
    Disguise and dominate
    If the girl could never get lost
    How is she gonna be found?
    And she can't find herself
    She's gone and jumped out of it
    One fall and she's out of it

    Her smiles are miles of metaphor
    Don't crack up
    It don't add up
    No U-turn
    You turn and mean catwalk
    So take off
    Tick tock
    Whose gonna fix your walk?
    And you walk when you're broken up
    Take her
    Face off
    Tick tock
    Full stop

    Don't you want to get lost?
    You know it devastates
    Glamour auto monkey
    Disguise and dominate
    The girl could never get lost
    How is she gonna be found?
    Couldn't find herself
    One fall and she's out of it

    Her smiles are miles of metaphor
    Don't crack up
    It don't add up
    No U-turn
    You turn and mean catwalk
    So take off
    Tick tock
    Whose gonna fix your walk?
    And you walk when you're broken up
    Take her face off
    Tick tock
