John Lydon – Open Up lyrics

Open up. Now open up.
You lied. You faked. You cheated.
You changed the stakes.
Magnet toss that pie in the sky.
Unrehearsed. Let the bubbles burst.
All in all. A three-ring circus.
Of unity with parody. Tragedy or comedy.
Probably publicity.
Open up. Make room for me.
Now open up. Make room for me.
Lose myself inside your schemes.
Go for the money, honey.
Not the screen.
Be a movie star. Blah, blah, blah.
Go the whole hog.
Be bigger than god.
Burn, hollywood, burn.
Taking down tinsel town.
Burn hollywood, burn.
Burn down into the ground.
Burn, hollywood, burn.
Burn, hollywood, burn.
Take down tinsel town.
Burn down to the ground.
Down into the ground.
