"Warhol's Showbiz" as written by and Samuel Loeffler Peter Loeffler....
I am the lie that stood you up
All of the taste without the fuss
Let's say
Are we alive from dawn to dusk
Rip out a page from Andy's book
And say
I had a line I had to cross
Outside the box we had to look
And say
The benefits won't keep you in

When you're in
You'll never know what beauty is

Well that's showbiz
Take it on the chin
Take it on the chin

Another maze that's how this goes
Enjoy the chase cuz that's all we may know

Till you're in
If you're in
You'll never know what beauty is

Cuz that's showbiz
Take it on the chin

I'm not your mother

Cuz that's showbiz
Take it on the chin
[x2]

Cuz that's showbiz
That's showbiz [x4]

    General CommentI think this song is referring to Andy Warhol and his art in film. Not sure really what the point is , though it seems it's being told from an actress or actors perspective to the viewer for watching them.

    Let's say
    Are we alive from dawn to dusk
    Rip out a page from Andy's book
    And say
    I had a line I had to cross
    Outside the box we had to look
    And say
    The benefits won't keep you in
    When your in
    You'll never know what beauty is

    Another maze that's how this goes
    Enjoy the chase that's all we may know
    Til your in
    If your in
    You'll never know what beauty is

    In the first line before the" let's say" I'm not sure who is speaking it but it seems to be a front remark to get people in. Seems to also be who speaks the chorus line

    well that's showbiz
    Take it on the chin

    And

    I'm not your mother

    As to say, hey you wanted in ,you got it ,now take it where I say and don't cry to me about it.

    Not too sure about it, I've heard the song a couple times and all Its I can think of so far. Love chevelle new stuff. They still got Thier cryptic charm in lyrics.
