"The Best Film He Ever Made" as written by Simon Allard, Nigel Pollard, Ian Gibson, Tony Mcguinness and Juliette Sainsbury....
Like an empty church when the lights go out
It was dark inside his complex ego
Almost God but not in heaven
Saddest man that lived in legend

I can see his films and I know his fate
How the perfect screenplay came to light
I've read about his degradation
Watched his past turn to cheap sensation

People we've learned to be
Losing ourselves inside
Damning eternally
Mostly immortal lies

When they dragged him out from the smashed-up car
There were crowds of hungry press around him
Slow to fade like flesh dissolving
Lift his life with the cameras rolling

People we've learned to be
Losing ourselves inside
Damning eternally

We might have seen a star that shined all day
If he was alive to shout his name
