Can we agree to agree there's depression, there's genius and there's crazy,
And this new business model has left them feeling sad,
We don't know how they live and we don't care how they function,
Give me your heart on a plate,
And give it to me now.

Thus follows the art famine
Thus follows.

Just like the doctor has bills so does the painter and musician,
Those pricks in film making even deserve financial recognition,
This is the world we've made,
Where we all have to get paid,
You want to gorge yourself,
Well you're living in the golden age.

Thus follows the art famine
Thus follows.

These aren't the kind of people that you'd trust with a new car,
Yet we rely on them, we call them friends, they make us laugh,
Meanwhile we're starving them and we're giving them the fingers,
They're killing themselves, they're giving up,
How long before there's no one left?

Thus follows the art famine
Thus follows the art famine
Thus follows the art famine
Thus follows.
