Lyrics
He's a victim of his own time
In his "vinage suit" and tie
he's a casuality dressed to the teeth
In the latest genocide
the new seasons come and go
at the dog and pony show
gonna sit and beg and fetch the names
and follow the dress codes
What's in a name...hey!

She's a scented magazine
looking sharp and living clean
living well and dressed to kill
but she looks like hell to me

So when you're dancing through you wardrobe
do the anorex - a go - go
cloaked with style
for pedophiles as the credit card explodes

you auctioned off your life
for the "most" expensive price
going once...
going twice...
now it's gone

(youth crew)

you auctioned off your life
for the "most" expensive price
going once...
going twice...
now it's gone

what's in a name...hey!
what's in a name...hey!
what's in a name?
Song Meaning
This song discusses the pathetic fashion-related tendencies of our society. The narrator mocks people who hypnotically buy the latest fashions and participate in the latest trends, only for the sake of "fitting in." Also, in the line "So when you're dancing through your wardrobe/Do the anorrex-a-go-go," it is implied that people are being brainwashed into thinking that they must be skinny. The people who design and market our clothes are setting the standard for how people should look, which is absolutely wrong.
