I look around, round, look around and look it over,
I take it up- up, take it out and, take you nowhere,
Trading in who I've been for shiny celebrity skin
I like to push it and, push it until my luck is over.
It never stop stops, never stops, well you better,
Think it over prima donna you don't want to sever,
All the work to impress, charming girls out of their dresses,
And smiling pretty, well pretty will swallow you forever

Step one, step two, step three repeat
And I pray at the church, of asses in the seats,
And disappear behind the beat, yeah

When the mirrors and the lights
And the smoke clear I'd never guess
How we ever coulda got here.
You can say what you say
When the lights go down
So shake, shake, shake,
And shut your mouth

I wonder why, why, I wonder why, why I oughta,
Let you wreck, resurrect whatever you want to.
I can't depend, in the end you know
I thought you were my friend.
Just stop, just stop, just stop I think I got it.
Sorry you, sorry me, sorry every in between,
Sorry everybody he will never be somebody clean.
There's a piece of me they're throwing back at us,
And they will buy you and sell you for celebrity status

Step one, step two, step three repeat
And I pray at the church of asses in the seats
And disappear behind beat, yeahhhh

When the mirrors and the lights
And the smoke clear, I'd never guess
How we ever coulda got here.
You can say what you say
When the lights go down
So shake, shake, shake,
And shut your mouth

When the mirrors and the lights
And the smoke clear, I'd never guess
How we ever coulda got here.
You can say what you say
When the lights go down
So shake, shake, shake
And shut your mouth

(Look around round, look around round, look around)x5
I'm tryin' I'm tyrin' I'm tryin' (Look around round, look around round, look around)
I'm tryin' I'm tryin' I'm tryin' (Look around round, look around round, look around)
I'm tryin' I'm tyrin' I'm tryin' (Look around round, look around round, look around)
I'm tryin' I'm tryin' I'm tryin' (Look around round, look around round, look around)

When the mirrors and the lights
And the smoke clear I'd never guess
How we ever coulda got here.
You can say what you say
When the lights go down
So shake, shake, shake,
And shut your mouth

When the mirrors and the lights
And the smoke clear I'd never guess
How we ever coulda got here.
You can say what you say
When the lights go down
So shake, shake, shake,
And shut your mouth

I'm tryin' I'm tryin' I'm tryin'

    This song is saying how everyone looks to fit in. We all 'smile pretty' to fit the media's version of perfection and its saying that we let it take control. When the magazines, 'mirrors/ smoke', and all that jazz are taken out of our lives we see that the lives we have lead to look stick thin and "beautiful" so to speak isnt how we wanted to live at all. Its saying we dont need to look like the celbrities. We dont need to harm ourselves to fit someone elses decription of beauty. Its basically saying we should be who we are without the influence of others.

    The meaning to me is that u don't need all these fancy things like u don't need all those mirrors or trying to be someone you're not just be yourself

    I think the meaning behind 'celebrity status' is that people now adays will do absaloutly anything to become famous and keep their, 'celebrity status'.
