Obsessive Cosmetic Disorder

about

Even though hygiene and aesthetics are two completely different things, there's a very fine line between them in modern day life. When discussing objects and people, we still judge a lot of books by their cover. This aesthetic bias causes the bullying of people, spoiling of food and disposing of perfectly fine products in return for newer versions.
Also, this can work the other way around: not everything that appears beautiful on the outside is as beautiful on the inside.
Let's not get all grandma'ish on you by spoiling the fun and telling you that bacteria actually keep you alive. But it is about time this obsession with cosmetics passes its expiration date and gets spoiled.

lyrics

Spoiler alert! For a modern misconception
Ain't it absurd that we moved in this direction
Esthetics outweigh all concerns about our hygiene
While no-one ever checked this meme

Cosmetic obsession
What you see isn't what you get

Spoiler alert! For what nears its expiration
We might get hurt, we might risk eradication
But if we learn to understand that shape ain't content
Imagine how much waste we will prevent

All this applies to humans, to fruit, guitars, and homes; all beautified on the outside
It’s distracting us all, looks good, at peace, you think; yet battlefields on the inside
