You had a chance to go around the world
But you had to be a silly bird
A revelation wouldn't matter much to you

Silly bird you bought a lousy dream
You took a number from the star machine
The star machine is spitting numbers all on you

You leave your family and some friends behind
It wasn't long until you lost your mind
The star machine is doing fine but how are you

You tell the world you had to fire the band
Your little world has gotten out of hand
The star machine will hand your ass right back to you

You say you want it you say you need it
You say it's everything you ever wanna be yeah
The star machine is coming down on you
And you and you and you

You say you want it, you say you need it
You say it's everything you ever wanna be yeah
The star machine is coming down on you on you yeah

Now it's getting hot in here
I'm doing everything you want me to
But nothing's ever good enough for you
You cycle ride right out of here

You say you want it you say you need it
You say it's everything you ever wanna be yeah
The star machine is coming down on you
And you and you and you

You told your story how you were treated
You couldn't handle it and now you feel defeated
Your star machine has taken all away from you yeah
