Drop Dead Famous! Lyrics

A lifetime under limelight in the gaze of the public eye

Face a standing ovation at the hands of all mankind
A household name, without a friend in the world
Raised on a lonesome pedestal with a front row view of the stars
It’s a day in the life of a man without a face
They’ll build you up to knock you down again

Live the dream your name in lights
Until the final curtain call
Those frenzied days and depraved nights
The bigger you are the harder you fall

For fifteen minutes of fame
They’ll build you up to knock you down again

A lifetime under limelight in the gaze of the public eye
Suffer ritual humiliation at the hands of those you despise

Live the dream your name in lights
Until the final curtain call
Those frenzied days and depraved nights
The bigger you are the harder you fall

It’s a shame that all good things must come to an end
When we realize that we can no longer pretend
That everything is all right, when nothing’s ever been right
Just empty space and wasted dreams and nothing’s ever as it seems

How would you feel if you woke up on morning and you’d never felt so out of place?
How would you feel if you looked in the mirror and didn’t recognize your own face?
Nothing’s ever as it seems. Nothing’s as it seems.
Though the show must go on and the heartache it brings
Resonates in the sound when the fat lady sings

Live the dream your name in lights
Until the final curtain call
Those frenzied days and depraved nights
The bigger you are the harder you fall
