lyrics

I stepped through those glass doors for the first time
Belly full of rum and tiny bits of accidental lime
Scanned the walls for signs of where to go
Covered my eyes around the lingerie, but for what reason I don't know

Found myself in a kind of normcore paradise
Sunglasses on mannequins and shorts you might describe as nice
Marvel t-shirts and all your other favourite brands
And all the things I ever needed sitting on one stand

And I'm sorry to all my hipster friends for entering this scene
But I really needed a new pair of jeans

Now I know that Primark has a history of using child labour
And believe me it's not an image I particularly want to savour
But Channel 4 have stopped making documentaries on the topic
So I'm using that as evidence that Primark must've stopped it

Still I'm a little uneasy about funding this corporation
Who literally used to have children working away in desperation
But I'm working for minimum wage and living in the city
So forgive me for wanting to only spend 8 quid on clothes that fit me

And I'm sorry to all those kids whose fingers bled sewing these seams
But I really needed a new pair of jeans

Yeah I'm sorry for caving and feeding the capitalist dream
But I really needed a new pair of jeans
