The Lyrics

It's all about the lack of originality in the entertainment industry, namely in movies (e.g.: Star Wars 1and 2), television(reality shows ans so-called sitcoms), and music (American Idol type pop stars). Books are guilty sometimes, but not enough to include them (because I don't read enough).
All the wasted of celluloid printing
They tell of stories of plots gone by
They tell of broken dreams and promises
It's the same marketing ties

And the wasteland of a city proud
It's The Factory we know too well
Just sit back, watch the movie, do you see the plot you sell?

You sell your story
You sell your story
You sell your story
We've seen some time before.

We wait for the day the CD comes soon
But after track number 9, we've done left the room
There is no talent, no lyric originality
It's only survival, per eMp-Ty-V

You sell your story
You sell your story
You sell your story
We've heard many times before.

You sell your story to Hollywood
You sell your story, didn't say you should
The same old garbage, we wanna hear no more
The same old gabage, we've seen several times before
