We are innocent for everything that's wrong
You make statements with your words in every song
And you can act for every camera
But you know that's not the answer
When you only give if someone seems to look

And we keep falling for the words you have to say
Never questioning your million dollar days
And they can put you on every magazine
To show off your celebrity
But have you really ever made a change?

'Cause we are working
And we are fighting
While you are living
In the lighting

So maybe this is how you've always been
Always searching for a way to grad attention
You can pose for every picture
And drink up every mixture
As you're paid to show your face in busy places

But we are working
And we are fighting
And we are searching
Without the lighting

And I know I'm not that perfect
But at least I know what love is
And if I could I'd give a hand to every man
'Cause I'm lucky just to be here
That's the way I see it clear
But you complain
'Cause you're so vain

But we are working
And we are fighting
While you are living
In the lighting

We are working (we are working)
And we are fighting (we are fighting)
While you are living (you are living)
In the lighting (in the lie in the lie in the lighting)

So we will cheer you all the way across the field
And we will listen to your music just to feel
And we will see you at the movies
While the money keeps you moving
But your celebrity has never made a change
