Is Conjob really such a hipster that his band's artwork would look like Gorillaz?

speaking of which,would it be blasphemous for me to rework a more modern version of the lyrics?

Remember when I said I was gonna update the song?

I started on it.

I actually did listen to the original while I did it,sang along and counted syllables to see what fit and what didn't.Tried to paint a certain picture and retain the same voice as delano's constantine

Some of it I didn't change out of resepect for the original creator and other things are references I know I don't get because I'm american.I reach out to my british allies,and thou shall strike the down if thine sin is too great :
Venus of the Hardsell (updated)


  Love, adventure death and glory [c'mon gais--not heartless enough to change the beginning and it's unnecessary to tamper]
   The short goodbye
   The whispered story
   One last glance at the chameleon dance
   And into the silver screen stare serene

   I ain't no mark for the Venus of the Hardsell

   (Say it)
   I ain't no mark for the Venus of the Hardsell

   Saints and sinners, new beginners
   We can buy new faces ,buy yourself thinner
   Prison cell bars and celebrity stars
   Sublimation hides the death of nations

   And it all thrives on the Venus of the Hardsell

   (Know it)
   It only thrives for the Venus of the Hardsell



   Empty graves and shallow heads
   Shallow smiles and they shot 'em dead [gun violence/war reference]
   With your cell phone on your head is gone   [this one's obvious]
   Sail out of sight of land
   Momma don't care care what happens to you
   This life has consumed her too  


  Don't listen out for all that's said

   Just worry when the hounds aren't fed ----------->again,this means something different to me as an american.Makes me think of the civil
   (Gotta)    rights movement(years ago)with dogs killing protesters.British reference please?
   Worry when the hounds aren't fed

   'Cos one mutt yaps and the pack starts baying
   Blood for the gods it's cheaper than praying
   Soldier-boys die but Superman still flies
   Violent days - it's a permanent craze

   It never pays to love the Venus of the Hardsell

   (Leave it)

   Don't fuck around with the Venus of the Hardsell

   There're new uniforms at the church bazaar
   Fanatics got the rising star
   Thin dark streets ring with marching men's feet------------>this is the main one...what reference is this,any ideas?I think I know but
   Past the billboard bride troops the national pride    I'm not gonna be culturally insensitive


   It's all supplied by the Venus of the Hardsell

   (Fuck it!)

   It's all supplied by the Venus of the Hardsell

  
   Nixon's names left on the moon
   Where Apollo's masons called the tune
   To cast their influence from above
   And damn all lunacy and love

   You know they made her the Venus of the Hardsell

   (Raped her)

   You know they made her the Venus of the Hardsell

   They're winning momma and it's getting dark
   D'you think there's time to build an ark?
   Tomorrow's a fiction, yesterday's a lie --->love this line so much
   I had a friend stuck his works in his eye

   Perhaps he'll die? I wonder why
   we don't cry for the Venus of the Hardsell
   Don't sigh for the Venus of the Hardsell
   Don't lie for the Venus of the Hardsell
   Don't die for the Venus of the Hardsell
-------------

I have version with the chords too---but obviously not posted
