I'm all lost...

Lost in the Supermarket--The Clash
I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in her for that special offer
A guaranteed personality


I wasn't born so much as I fell out
Nobody seemed to notice me
We had a hedge back home in the suburbs
Over which I never could see

I heard the people who lived on the ceiling
Scream and fight most scarily
Hearing that noise was my first ever feeling
That's how it's been all around me

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in her for that special offer
A guaranteed personality

I'm all tuned in, I see all the programmes
I save coupons from packets of tea
I've got my giant hit discoteque album
I empty a bottle and I feel a bit free

The kids in the halls and the pipes in the walls
Make me noises for company
Long distance callers make long distance calls
And the silence makes me lonely

I'm all lost in the supermarket
I can no longer shop happily
I came in her for that special offer
A guaranteed personality

And it's not here
It disappeared
I'm all lost




and in the present-day spirit of punk in the most fashionable sense:

Keep in mind that these Christian Louboutin for Rodarte heels, spiky as they may be, in essence go against everything that punk (originally an anti-fashion movement) once stood for, but hey, that doesn't take away from the fact that they're pretty freaking sweet.
