Your popularity contest veiled as a revolution
wallow in misery, suffer your celebrity
hold your status above me
hold it high above me
wallow in your misery, suffer your celebrity
you hold a special place in my heart with handshakes and smiling faces...
...and all your actions, they have a reason
premeditated compliments
your life - contorted, contrived - and you play the part so well
in their lives I've seen compromise but I will not compromise
your game, your rules, you win
I am their slave
I'm just a pawn in their game
Labels make the best the best targets
persecution is its own reward so still you carry your cross for all to see
why live without an audience?
in their lives I've seen compromise but I will not compromise
complacent slave!
