Name your price and it’s all theirs, to do as they please, to smash it apart…



Give them an inkling you’re selling out, and they’ll buy you up till scraps remain...

Name your price and it’s all theirs, to do as they please, to smash it apart…

Give them an inkling you’re selling out, and they’ll buy you up till scraps remain

 

Whatever you’ve got there deep inside, isn’t precious enough for you to hide

Let it all pour out, waste it on the line; barter your life for a feel good time

 

Tell us just how easy it was to do; tell us with a grin, the world owns you…

Tell us what you gave for all you’ve got; tell us it was easy…when it was not

 

You know what it was—a grand mistake; the fish on the hook saw only the bait

Through all the gain, you stood to lose…just everything you never thought to use

 

Your price was a fortune, some glamour and fame; you sold out your heart and got you a name

 

Now look what they’ve done…they’ve worn you to bits, to pieces and tears; your mind’s on the fritz

 

Now what do you have? A reason to fly? A reason to fall? A quick way to die?

 

How fast it all went…from heaven to hell

 

So who will be next?

 

Which hearts are for sale?
