Capped white teeth, and bleached hair; posed like bright figurines
Watch after-school sell-outs living endorsement scenes
With synchronized dance moves; in baggy pants or thongs
Their "See Spot run" lyrics don't come close to real songs.
Bands like the "Pumpkins" and "Rage" were genius-induced
But much is uninspired; it's factory-produced
Music groups have issues, and they let their fans know
Who wants to hear a band faked for a TV show?
These aren't artists, just performers, squirming in time
Marketing models marching on MTV prime
Now, I don't want the kids today to miss their call
But "made for Pepsi" music doesn't thrill me at all.
