[1 verse]
I got drive so I'll survive
In Hollywood where I will
Thrive.

I'll arrive;
I'll take a drive into the pool, into the hive.

I won't break
I'm what it takes,
I'll make my mark like an earthquake.

Raise the stakes
I'm wide awake be in your sight, 'til your head aches.

[Chorus]
Fascination,
Saturation
Stars are just like us.

Validation,
Exploitation
All cause a big fuss.

POP POP!
Goes the camera.
Fifteen minutes of fame.

POP POP!
Goes the camera.
Fifteen minutes right now.

POP POP POP POP POP!
Look at me, Look at me
In a magazine.

POP POP!
Goes the camera.
Fifteen minutes of fame.

[2 verse]

Cross promotion
Cross the ocean
I'll make bank off of their devotion.

Drink the potions
Cause commotions
Got them feeling strong emotions.

I'll inspire,
They'll admire,
Won't turn on me 'cause I got fire.

Fame expires,
I'll retire but I'll hold on down to the wire.

[Repeat chorus]

[Instrumental]

I've been told each flash
Steals your soul.

Every celebrity knows fame
Takes it's toll.

[Repeat chorus last time].
