From the recording Diamonds
A track about the cult of celebrity, fame and power. Royalty, financiers, trophies, artists, politicians, soldiers... all arms of The Machine. To acquire the ultimate in social status means to become a slave to it: to the expectations of others, the requirement to conform to certain specifications, to stay young, beautiful and relevant. You are given everything at the expense of everything.
