Radio stations playing what you want to hear
When it went gold, and then went platinum
With girls screaming in your ear
I snapped a photo of
Lunch meat on the tour bus
(Lunch meat on the tour bus)
And sold it factory direct

I gave the invitations to the crowd around
They were all screaming for your blood and common adoration
Drugs will numb the situation
And you can go back home to mom and dad

Strippers, fancy cars, tattoos overly indulged
The smoke machines
Turned on ten will cause the fire marshall to show up
But who could stop the rock when it had just begun to rule
Surely not me as I was only in a happy pool

I gave the invitations to the crowd around
They were all screaming for your blood and common adoration
Drugs will numb the situation
And you can go back home to mom and dad

    General Commentwhy has no one commented this? I love it! So much! and it's wrong.

    'Surely not me as I was only a happy boy'. I think. Am I wrong?

    General Commentthis is about how ridiculous a band is. idk what band, but hey.

    it seems to be about how they gain in popularity, they lose touch with reality, because there are "girls screaming in your ear" and "all screaming for your blood and common adoration", but then he'll just take drugs and "go back to mom and dad".

    pretty obvious, about the strippers, fancy cars, tattoos overly indulged.

    then there's the incident with the smoke machines, it seems to epitomise the band, where they try and get the smoke machines going but they turn it up too high, causing the fire marshall to turn up, thus ruining the mood of the show (stop the rock when it had just begun to rule). it reflects their failure.
