  • I want to be rich and I want lots of money
    I don't care about clever, I don't care about funny
    I want loads of clothes and fuckloads of diamonds
    I heard people die while they are trying to find them

    And I'll take my clothes off and it will be shameless
    'Cause everyone knows that's how you get famous
    I'll look at the sun and I'll look in the mirror
    I'm on the right track, yeah, I'm on to a winner

    I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
    I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
    When do you think it will all become clear
    'Cause I'm being taken over by the fear

    Life's about film stars and less about mothers
    It's all about fast cars and cussing each other
    But it doesn't matter 'cause I'm packing plastic
    And that's what makes my life so fuckin' fantastic

    And I am a weapon of massive consumption
    And it's not my fault, it's how I'm programmed to function
    I'll look at the sun and I'll look in the mirror
    I'm on the right track, yeah, I'm on to a winner

    I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
    I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
    When do you think it will all become clear
    'Cause I'm being taken over by the fear

    Forget about guns and forget ammunition
    'Cause I'm killing them all on my own little mission
    Now I'm not a saint but I'm not a sinner
    Now everything is cool as long as I'm getting thinner

    I don't know what's right and what's real anymore
    I don't know how I'm meant to feel anymore
    When do you think it will all become clear
    'Cause I'm being taken over by the fearWriter/s: Lily Rose Allen, Greg Kurstin
