Walking down the street, it's everywhere you see
Looking right at you and staring right at me
You can't escape it because it's in your face
The stars are out, they're bright today
It's the latest craze, it sets your eyes ablaze
They're just hoping this ain't just a passing phase
Turn the cycle to a faster spin
Throw the has-beens out, bring a fresh face in
This is your only chance knock them dead
Show it if you got it
The world is watching you
Take it if you want it
What have you got to lose?
Raise your glass you made it
Everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing
So now you won the fight, there's no end in sight
Everyone's your friend, might as well take a bite
You've just made it while the others dream
But just make sure the cash register rings
They all know your name, it's such an easy game
If all goes well, you'll have your minute of fame
Suddenly people want to help you now
Plug it in, make sure you play it loud
This is your only chance knock them dead
Show it if you got it
The world is watching you
Take it if you want it
What have you got to lose?
Raise your glass you made it
Everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing
Show it if you got it
The world is watching you
Take it if you want it
What have you got to lose?
Raise your glass you made it
Everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing
Keep that spotlight on, breath it in
Because when it's over you will know your friends
Yeah, you enjoy yourself, appreciate the help
You'll need all the help you can get
Show it if you got it
The world is watching you
Take it if you want it
What have you got to lose?
Raise your glass you made it
Everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing
Show it if you got it
The world is watching you
Take it if you want it
What have you got to lose?
Raise your glass you made it
Everyone's waiting for the next big thing
The next big thing

    General CommentThis song is about trends and fame, and about how quickly it comes and goes and what happens when you attain it thus telling you how to know when it's over (friends, treatment).
