The road I walk is paved in gold
To glorify my platinum soul
I'll buy my way to talk to God
So he can live with what I'm not

The selfish blood runs through my veins
I gave up everything for fame
I am the lie that you adore
I feed the rich and fuck the poor

I got, what you want
It's just, don't stop
I got, what you want
It's just, don't stop

This is entertainment
Lies are entertainment
You are down on your knees
Begging me for more

The road I walk is paved in gold
To glorify my platinum soul
I am the closest thing to God
So worship me and never stop

The wretched blood runs through my veins
I gave up everything for fame
I am the lie that you adore
Now feed the rich, fuck the poor

I got, what you want
It's just, don't stop
I got, what you want
It's just, don't stop.

This is entertainment
Lies are entertainment
You are down on your knees
Begging me for more

Dear future
I bought you
I own the rights

To let go
Destroy you
This is my life

Dear future
I bought you
I own the rights

To let go
Destroy you
This is my life... inside...

I've got, what you want
It's just, don't stop
I've got, what you want
It's just, don't stop.

This is entertainment
Lies are entertainment
You are down on your knees
Begging me for more
(Begging me for more)
Begging me for more

(I've got, what you want
It's just, don't stop)

    I think that this is about how corrupt our country is since the poor are always given more and the poor are being treated terribly. There are some people who like to be spoken as if a god, these people are 'famous' because of their terrible influences, remember Kanye recognized himself as the 'new' Jesus? Maybe that could be a new addition to the list of people who think they are better than everyone else. I don't mean to bad talk celebrities since some are really nice and cool but the majority that we know are jerks especially the ones in the music industry.

    This song describes today's "music" industry in a nutshell, look at these lines:

    "the road i walk is paved in gold, to glorify my platinum soul" ~> this talks about pop stars today and how money is all that is important to them. They'll do anything it takes for fame and money.

    "the selfish blood runs through my veins, i gave up everything for fame" ~> again, about music stars today. All they want is fame and they're willing to do anything for it, regardless of how cr@ppy their music is.

    "i am the lie that you adore" ~> basically the same as the other two, these "stars" are complete lies that corrupt the music industry, and our society.

    "i feed the rich and @#$% the poor" ~> what rellik3o3 said is completely right, the only attention given by the media is "fed" to the rich, and the poor are forgotten.

    "this is entertainment, lies are entertainment" ~> today's music industry and the media are both total lies, yet society still considers this "entertainment"

    "i am the closest thing to g-d, so worship me, and never stop" ~> the basic message the media sends us through music, tv, etc. Today. They consider themselves "g-ds" since everyone "worships" their so-called "talents" they have.

    ?

    Overall, really good song, perfectly describes how our society is influenced and songs like this should really get the point across on how messed up society is today.

    I think this is about the lies, cover-ups and fake perfection of Hollywood. The celebrities, at least, most of them, think they're better than everyone, and think they have everything, that they can control everything. "Feed teh rich, fuck the poor" is the line describing what they think of those that aren't as rich or famous as them.
