False happiness. The emptiness of the materialistic lifestyle.
All your life you wanted more; living room department store. Daddy's girl, you know my heart; sterilized right from the start.
The amusement park is set all up for you. No one else is allowed to ride the rides. Every parking space is reserved only for you and the candy floss is served by a machine.
All your life you wanted more; cellophane department store. Garden in the living room. Swimming pool, the chlorine high.
The amusement park is open just for you. No one else is allowed to ride the rides. Every parking space is reserved only for you and the games are all rigged so you can't lose.
From behind, a faint “hello”. Familiar voice, it is your own. Turn around; a painted smile, robotic clown is winding down.
And the ferris wheel is spinning just for you. In the centre is a hypnotizing light. Spinning wildly, the bolts are coming loose. Plastic Iroquois canoeing down the flume.
The amusement park is set all up for you. No one else is allowed upon the rides. Every parking space reserved only for you. The conductor is singing “Silent Night”.
