  • They'll be making sure you stay amused
    They'll fill you up with drugs and booze
    Maybe you'll make the evenin' news

    And when you're trippin' over your dreams
    They'll keep you down by any means
    By the end of the night you'll be
    Stiflin' your screams

    Since you became a V.I. Person
    It's like your problems have all worsened
    Your paranoia casts aspersions
    On the truths you know

    And they'll just put you in a spotlight
    And hope that you'll do alright
    Or maybe not

    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    Why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    So why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    Starz in their eyes

    Remember they said you'd show them all
    Emphasize the rise but not the fall
    And now you're playin' a shoppin' mall

    Your mum and dad, they can't believe
    What you appear to have achieved
    While the rest of these users are just laughin' in their sleeves

    Since you became a V.I. Person
    It's like your problems have all worsened
    Your paranoia casts aspersions
    On the truths you know

    And now the tabloids use your face
    To document your fall from grace
    And then they'll tell you that
    That's just the way it goes
    That's just the way it goes

    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    It's the same old story
    Well, they just didn't realize

    And it's a long way to come
    From the dog and duck karaoke machine
    And Saturday night's drunken dreams

    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    It's the same old story
    Well, they just didn't realize

    And it's a long way to come
    From your private bedroom dance routines
    And Saturday night's drunken dreams

    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    Why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    So why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    Starz in their eyes

    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    It's the same old story
    Well, they just didn't realize

    And it's a long way to come
    From the dog and duck karaoke machine
    And Saturday night's drunken dreams

    When I grow up I'm goin' to be famous

    Behind the steel barrier, sequence and glitter
    Five inch heels still knee deep in the litter
    Each of them a bitter bullshitter
    Wrapped up in the cloak of fake glamor
    Gettin' lost in the camera

    Well, footprints are fool's gold
    And diamonds crust their glitz on their one off plimsolls
    So little time for these one off arseholes
    Rigor mortis Ken and Barbie dolls

    A pair of big shades and a push up bra
    It's such a short gap between the gutter and stars
    But you've come a long way from the place that you started
    So why'd you wanna go and get so down hearted

    Welcome to the kingdom of the blagger
    Uncuttin' your nose, clean coat in your bladder
    A whole lot happier, a whole lot sadder
    Used to be satisfied, now you feel like Mick Jagger

    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    It's the same old story
    Well, they just didn't realize

    And it's a long way to come
    From the dog and duck karaoke machine
    And Saturday night's drunken dreams

    Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
    It's the same old story
    Well, they just didn't realize

    And it's a long way to come
    From your private bedroom dance routines
    And Saturday night's drunken dreams Writer/s: Jack Christopher Allsopp
