The More We Possess, The Less Own Of Ourselves (Brett Anderson)

Baby thought she really needed that sofa Baby thought she really wanted that dress Baby thought she really had to have two cars Baby thought she really had to say yes But the more she possessed, The more she'd slide into debt And the more she possessed The less she owned of herself Baby thought she really needed that hairstyle Baby thought she really had to say yes Baby really needed acres of carpets Thought she'd be happy if she had larger breasts Everybody said you can't live without them Everybody said you have to say yes So Baby spent her everything on this lifestyle But it's a lifestyle that doesn't exist And the more she possessed The more she'd slide into debt And the more she possessed The less she owned of herself Yes, the more we possess The more we are in debt And the more we possess The less we own of ourselves
