Lyrics:

   So you finally got what you wanted
   You've achieved your aim by making me walk in line
   And when you just can't get any higher
   You use your senses to suss out this week's climber
   And the small fame that you've acquired
   Has brought you into cult status but to me you're still a collector

   There's tarts and whores but you're much more
   You're a different kind 'cause you want their minds
   And you just don't care 'cause you've got no pride
   It's just a face on your pillowcase
   That thrills you

   And you started looking much older
   And your fashion sense is second rate like your perfume
   But to you in your own little dream world
   You're still the Queen of the butterfly collectors

   As you carry on 'cause it's all you know
   You can't light a fire, you can't cook or sew
   You get from day to day by filling your head
   But surely you must know the appeal between your legs
   Has worn off

   And I don't care about morals
   'Cause the world's insane and we're all to blame anyway
   And I don't feel any sorrow
   Towards the Kings and Queens of the butterfly collectors

   There's tarts and whores but you're much more
   You're a different kind 'cause you want their minds
   And you just don't care 'cause you've got no pride
   It's just a face on your pillowcase
   That thrills you
   
   As you carry on 'cause it's all you know
   You can't light a fire, you can't cook or sew
   You get from day to day by filling your head
   But surely you must know the appeal between your legs
   Has worn off

   And I don't feel any sorrow
   Towards the Kings and Queens of the butterfly collectors
