Pete Townshend – Stardom In Acton lyrics

Stardom in Acton that's all they got.
Stardom in Acton that's all they got.
Stardom in Acton that's all they got.

Just like the grub that wriggles to the top of the mass
I'm the first to get hooked
Just like the stub of that long cigarette full of hash
I'm the first to get booked.
But I'm capable
My loves inescapable
Conquering lethargy
I've got energy

Stardom-I want a hit
Want my tan, want my cash, want my innocence
Stardom-I want a script
Want my band, want my stash, want omnipotence

I'll go where the senescent soldier retires
And shiver in south California
Watching the storms and tangled wires
And rivers that meet on the corner
Like some prostitute
Handing round the loot
I am not ashamed
I will stake a claim

Stardom-born in a trunk
Got my home, got my car, got stability
Stardom-I'm Hollywood's son
All alone don't admire anonymity

I'm so angry that you turned me on
I didn't remain your friend for too long
I'm so angry that you turned me on
I didn't stay your friend for too long
I'm so angry that you let me see
My totally futile destiny
I'm so angry-you interrupted my dream
Now I know that the power rests in me.

Stardom-I want a hit
Want my tan, want my cash, want my innocence
Stardom-I want a script
Want my band, want my stash, want omnipotence

Stardom-born in a trunk
Got my home, got my car, got stability
Stardom-I'm Hollywood's son
All alone don't admire anonymity

Stardom in Acton that's all they got.
Stardom in Acton that's all they got.
Stardom in Acton that's all they got
Stardom in Acton that's all they got

    That's the neighborhood in London where Pete and John were from, right? I think it is a very personal song pete has to say to himself sometime. "so what ...what you doing lately? does it have any meaning, you know like the best of the sixties". This is pete to himself and those who cross that bridge, wordage that is trying to say star power ain't the end all. Yeah the who were from there, but that alone does nothing for anybody, at some level we alll have to reach for more and hopefully it is spiritually and community balanced.
