15 min of fame can turn to 15 min of shame
15 min of lame if your not careful man
I agree with Jay Z no maybes or might be's
Fame is the worst drug known to man
Geeked on the spotlight even if it's not right
Loving the limelight they can't resist
The addiction of fame's intoxicating the brain
Leaving the masses as has beens mad and pissed

Got no love from Mommy and Dad you never knew
Just 14 when you ran away and got your 1st tattoo
Now you think if you could just become a famous
Superstar
That the pain you feel would go away and you could hide
From who you are

I never bought it
I don't believe it
You've lost your mind
You best retrieve it
Start the clock... Tick Tock
Hurry up... Tick Tock
Ride that painted pony
Let the spinnin' wheel burn

What the hell have we become
Desensitized and growing up numb
You'd do anything for them to know your name
Now you've sold your soul for your 15 minutes of fame

Those who achieve it just can't believe it
They look to extend that 1-5 high
And without notice they finally notice
Their 15 min has said goodbye

Drained and strained from emotional pain
Snatching years off your life that you'll never reclaim
It wooed you and screwed you
Exploited and used you
Now it doesn't look as good as it once used to

17 with a baby, selling drugs to make the rent
And the echoes of what might have been are still
Ringing in your head
Now you think if you could just become a famous
Superstar
That the pain you feel would go away and you could hide
From who you are

Drowning and clowning and wondering why
Your limit wasn't close to the sky
Can't release the fame so you're living a lie
Can't except the truth your time has passed you by
So you deny and rely on what once was
Back when you had a buzz
No more autographs no more groupie love
Your 15 minutes gone now you're just a scrub

21 and all alone because the State they took your baby
So you packed up and moved to Hollywood on the chance
That just maybe
Now you think if you could just become a famous
Superstar
That the pain you feel would go away and you could hide
From who you are
