Tonight I’ll laugh myself asleep again
To the same old swan songs I just keep hearing
And you strike every nerve with your pretensions.
Always the butt of the joke when no one’s laughing.

You wanted the role, now your playing the part
They’re dying to be just like you.
So sing us a song where we can’t sing along
And you’re the new sensation
New sensation

I’m better off with my two left feet
You’re no god damned messiah with the answers to everything.
I know that hell is other people
I know I’ll lose my mind
I need some inspiration
Inspiration

I’ve grown sick
Slick bullshit
Eat your heart out
This song’s about you

You wanted the role, now your playing the part
They’re dying to be just like you.
So sing us a song where we can’t sing along
And you’re the new sensation
New sensation


Who needs a spine anyway?
Without a backbone it’s just aesthetics.
Yeah, it's just aesthetics.
I cant take the noise anymore.
Pry up the floorboards and raise the dead.
It’s time to raise the dead.

You wanted the role, now your playing the part
They’re dying to be just like you.
So sing us a song where we can’t sing along
And you’re the new sensation
New sensation

    General CommentI think this song is about his girlfriend. Or him being chosen to be a boyfriend out of a few possibilities.

    You wanted the role
    Now you're playing the part
    We're dying to be just like you.

    Or maybe his friend is now something that the singer envies. Lots of choices for this one.
