I got drive so I'll survive in Hollywood where I will thrive
I'll arrive I'll take a dive into the pool into the hive
I won't break I'm what it takes I'll make my mark like an earthquake
Raise the stakes I'm wide awake be in your sight 'til your head aches

Fascination, saturation
Stars are just like us
Validation, exploitation
All cause a big fuss

Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes of fame
Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes right now
Pop pop pop pop pop
Look at me, look at me in a magazine
Pop pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes of fame

Cross promotion, cross the ocean, I'll make bank off their devotion
Drink the potions cause commotions got them feeling strong emotions
I'll inspire they'll admire, won't turn on me cause I got fire
Fame expires, I'll retire but I'll hold on down to the wire

Fascination, saturation
Stars are just like us
Validation, exploitation
All cause a big fuss

Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes of fame
Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes right now
Pop pop pop pop pop
Look at me, look at me in a magazine
Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes of fame

I've been told each flash steals your soul
Every celebrity knows
Fame takes it's toll

Fascination, saturation
Stars are just like us
Validation, exploitation
All cause a big fuss

Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes of fame
Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes right now
Pop pop pop pop pop
Look at me, look at me in a magazine
Pop, pop goes the camera
Fifteen minutes of fame

    General CommentThis is pretty self-explanatory; basically Fall Out Boy's "America's Suitehearts" with different lyrics and a techno beat. I LOVE his older stuff. It reminds me of 3OH!3's "Don't Trust Me" and The White Tie Affair.
