CHILD STAR
is there a photo of me on your wall in short short-shorts
or zipped down jeans?
do you look up at night and wish you were me, under the stage
under hot lights?

are you visceral viscous?
do you want to make love to my sweet visage,
and then pretend it's you, it's you
it was always you

CHILD FAN
i wrote you a letter to become a member of your fanclub
but all i got in the mail was return to sender

STAR
I'm still a big big star

FAN
No you're not

STAR
Yes I am

FAN
No you're not

STAR
Yes I am

FAN
No you're not.

STAR
You liked my latest film

FAN
No I didn't

STAR
Yes you did

FAN
No I didn't

STAR
Yes you did

FAN
No I didn't

FAN
I'm not a fan of yours anymore

STAR
Yes you are

FAN
No I'm not

STAR
Yes you are

FAN
No I'm not

STAR
Yes you are

FAN
But you broke my fragile heart

STAR
No I didn't

FAN
Yes you did

STAR
No I didn't

FAN
Yes you did

STAR
No I didn't

FAN
I hate you

STAR
I hate you too

FAN
I hate you

STAR
I hate you too

FAN: I hate you
STAR: I hate you
and repeat

    General CommentI love this song, but it's even better live, when Alden and Nick get into fisticuffs at the end of it.

    General CommentMaybe I'm reading too much into the song, but from the beginning until about the "I hate you" part the music is sort of..well, it kind of reminds me of a sort of funeral march. Then, at the "I hate you" part, the music perks up a bit, symbolizing how the star and the fan are really just kids- the music is very playful at that point, in contrast to the seriousness of the beginning.
