lyrics

Death of the Rockstar
 
Fuck the industry, fuck labels and radio
The second you get original, they never wanna play you
They'll betray you, fake backing you then hate you
Amazing what they say when the smoke and mirrors engage you
Like an angel, come from heaven here to save you
You swear you've got you're problems solved 'till the bill comes in for payment
You're enslave then, they own every single angle
You're bound and gagged, you can't run back, the underground won't help you

It's the death of the rockstar
All over again
And assured as I write this
I don't give a shit
Fuck the t.v. and movies
And all that they've shown me
'Cause this sure ain't it
All the lives that they've sold
Skinny jean 12 year olds
I'm just so sick of it

Waltz your pace please the crowd
Waltz your pace face the crowd

Traded everything for nothing, sold my childhood for pennies
Gunning for this great reward but never getting any
And there's plenty, artists to pick from 'cause there's many
Deserving of your precious love, and the spending of your money

It's the death of the rockstar
All over again
And assured as I write this
I don't give a shit
Fuck the t.v. and movies
And all that they've shown me
'Cause this sure ain't it
It's the death of the rockstar
Over, no more, this is all that you get

Waltz your pace please the crowd
Waltz your pace face the crowd

Some things some fans don't care for
Some things some bands don't care for
Some thing some fans won't care for
Some thing some bands won't care for

It's the death of the rockstar
All over again
And assured as I write this
I don't give a shit
Fuck the t.v. and movies
And all that they've shown me
'Cause this sure ain't it
All the lies that they've told
There's no strippers, no blow
So fuck it, I quit
