about

Consumer Whore is an upbeat electro anti-folk pop song about consumerism. It places the blame of whorish consumerism on ones self.

lyrics

once a consumer whore, always a whore.
once a consumer whore, always a whore.

i’m angry at myself cuz i’m the one thing i control
i’m angry at my life cuz i live it like a consumer whore
whore
i could keep blaming how i grew up, the government, or tv
but that’s not what i see in the mirror looking back at me
looking back at me
it’s just me
it’s just me

so i’m tired of my job, working for the man
tired of scheming with all of my plans to make money
fucking paper money
it doesn't grow on trees, it just replaces trees

so i’m angry at myself cuz i’m the one thing i control
i’m angry at my life cuz i live it like a consumer whore
whore
whore
whore

so i’m tired of the sky when i look of for some hope
all i see is chem-trail smoke and i choke
what are chem-trails? i don’t know.
that’s the governments show.
we can guess but we don’t know.

so i’m angry at myself cuz i’m the one thing i control
i’m angry at my life cuz i live it like a consumer whore
whore
whore
whore
so maybe i should eat right
refrain from refined sugar
stop drinking alcohol
stop smoking marijuana
but i don’t wanna
stop smoking marijuana
no i don’t wanna

i’m angry at myself cuz i’m the one thing i control
i’m angry at my life cuz i live it like a consumer whore
whore
so i’m angry at myself cuz i’m the one thing i control
i’m angry at my life cuz i live it like a consumer whore
whore
whore
whore

i’m angry at myself cuz i’m the one thing i control
i’m angry at my life cuz i live it like a consumer whore
whore
so i’m angry at myself cuz i’m the one thing i control
i’m angry at my life cuz i live it like a consumer whore
whore

about

Team Smile and Nod Columbus

Team Smile and Nod is an electro folk pop duo from Columbus, Ohio that formed in 2004. About a week after swapping demo CDs, Rich Ratvasky (artist-producer) surprised Kara E. Sherman (singer-songwriter) with a remix of one of her songs. Inspired by the remix, they merged their musical styles into an upbeat, melody-driven, politically-inspired fusion. ... more
