Vanity
words and music by Jackson Rohm

Back in school you were the prom queen
With the captain of the football team
It was all about the face time
Be in the right place at the right time
You had an image to protect
So you had to have the finest clothes
And the pearls around your neck
Twenty years and nothingís changed at all
Except the pain killers and the alcohol
You to take to get you through the day
How did things end up this way

Your life is such a mess
So painfully obsessed
With all that you possess
Iím not impressed
So now youíre all alone
With your booze and methadone
The lights are on but no oneís home
Vanity, vanity, vanity

When you roll with high society
And youíre living large
Youíve got to make endís meet
Now the repo man came for all the stuff you bought
Your beemerís gone and your creditís shot
Your boss finally handed you a pink slip
And the country club revoked your membership
And the only oneís who give a damn
Are your therapist and one night stands
Youíve got to get you through the night
Contemplating suicide

Your life is such a mess
So painfully obsessed
With all that you possess
Iím not impressed
So now youíre all alone
With your booze and methadone
The lights are on but no oneís home
Vanity, vanity, vanity

Mirror mirror on the wall
This makes no sense at all
How can this be my fault

Vanity, vanity, vanity
