[3]

I would not expect you felt alone in standing north

Better to rise above the clouds Then be a stranger in the crowd

All that you protected doesn’t matter anymore

Rather be stripped of all your pride

Than watch your dreams be cast aside


You are caught up in your gravity

Glorifying stardom

Singing your own praise


You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine

Standing on the sidelines

Watching through the looking glass


You are not content with being nameless and unknown

Trying to rise above the fray

Eager to give it all away


Some will not admit that 15 minutes have expired

Too much attention much too soon

Don’t see you walking on the moon


You are caught up in your gravity

Bathing in the spotlight

Imitating fame


You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine

Standing on the sidelines

Watching through the looking glass


You are caught up in your gravity

Glorifying madness

Singing your own praise


You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine

Standing on the sidelines

Watching through the looking glass


You live without shame

You’re digging up a gold mine

Standing on the sidelines

Watching through the looking glass
