Sometimes the least deserving people receive all the glory.

lyrics

Placebo

The color of the pill dictates if you are ill
I can see if you hold very still that you won’t or maybe you will
What you represent helps disguise ugly intent
Are you straight or are you bent?

You are better than the real thing
Cause you are good at nothing
You are better than the real thing
Cause you are good at nothing

You’ll never be as cool as the idea of you
To dig you reality’s through, and I’ll pack up my dignity, too
Your subliminal call inspires your minions to crawl
Best medicine’s none at all

Their belief in you transcends common sense or making amends
Loving you like popular trends will fade if they open their eyes
Bound by self imposed ties they choose not to be wise
