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
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
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
