Sitting here on top of the world
Ive got everything I ever need form this world
Oh, tonight
I got it right
Just one time

Cruising down the Sunset Strip
And there is nothing thats not
Thats not within my grip
But tonight I can fly
I can fly, yeah

Look at me for the very last time
Ive climbed so high
Ive got no place left to climb
Man, I know no tomorrow

Oh, rock star, pop star
Everybody dies
All tomorrows parties
They have happened tonight
And I know that I wont see tomorrow

Sitting on the Hollywood sign
Watching the girls get off the bus
Watching the danger in their eyes
And they leave with broken hearts
Theyre shredded valentines

I came here from a dirty, dark street
There was no one there to protect me
To make the nightmares go away
It has to sparkle
It has to shine
So hollow

Look at me for the very last time
Ive climbed so high
Ive got no place left to climb
Man I know no tomorrow

Oh, rock star, pop star
Everybody dies
All tomorrows parties
They have happened tonight
And I know that I wont see tomorrow

Turn off all the porno please
Been drowning here for days
Bad food, bad sex
Bad TV, Internet
Take all these stupid pills away

Flying down the Boulevard
Im coming down so fast
Im coming down so hard
And the doctor said
I cant stop all those voices in your head

And I dont sleep I never dream
And to shut them up
Now I just keep screaming
I run away, its the last time
Its the last time

Look at me for the very last time
Ive climbed so high
Ive got no place left to climb
Now I know no tomorrow

Before the sparkle in my eyes turns to strychnine
While this beating heart is still a valentine
Im gonna ride this thing until the wheels fall off
'Coz girls like me
We always get what we want
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Diamond hard promises and million dollar pills
All the nights we wasted in the Hollywood hills
'Coz we know were too good for tomorrow
Yeah, yeah, yeah

Yesterdays girl or tomorrows hot teens
Were you jerking off to her or were you jerking off to me?
And I know that I wont know tomorrow

Yeah, you want my massive power
You want my throw-it-all-away
Im throwing them out
Its a wonder that you wait

Lawsuits, diamonds, guns 'n' rubies
Baby au revoir
You rock 'n' roll bitches
You can do what you want

You were made for me
And I was made for you
With the keys to the Bel-Air, the Chateau too
Your little sugar-coated world
It is rotten to the core
I didnt know you were born without a soul

Ive got voices screaming in my head
Are you jerking off in your bed?
Its not punk, its not cool
Its not even boring
And its not Eminem whos gonna save me

Its a real life they tried to steal my soul
I got pills when Im famous
I got pills when youre old
I got pills 'coz Im blonde
I got pills 'coz youre dead
I got pills 'coz I am the worst and best dressed

I got pills 'coz I feel more than 21
I got pills 'coz I know baby youre not the one
I got pills for my coochie 'coz baby Im sore
I got pills 'coz youre fat
I got pills 'coz Im bored

Cruising down the Sunset Strip
And there is nothing thats not
Thats not within my grip
Oh, tonight I got it right
Just one time
