Make it stay in Vegas

Eyes up, rise up
someday you’ll be famous
but not like this, not like this
make it stay in Vegas

when did it start, this downward slide
this freefall into dark oblivion
where people are nothing but nameless faces
numbers
spots on the ground
targets
where what you want is paramount
and you
you
you
you matter, only
you matter

Eyes up, rise up
someday you’ll be famous
but not like this, not like this
make it stay in Vegas
I don’t know the answer, who does
really…a tangled mess of hopes
dreams
causes
conditions
and all on tracks leading
away from
love and reality
an ever speeding demon of disvalue
and it’s our fault
all
our
fault

Eyes up, rise up
someday you’ll be famous
but not like this, not like this
make it stay in Vegas

And I don’t agree with you, you with her
them, us, all just speaking
past each other
all just hoping it’s a fad
a short time
a minute of horror we
wake up from
but how many
minutes
until the next shell is
ejected
the next life
rejected. The next
asshole
elected

Eyes up, rise up
someday you’ll be famous
but not like this, not like this
make it stay in Vegas

Eyes up, rise up
someday you’ll be famous
but not like this, not like this
make it stay in Vegas

So tired, deluged, can I just make it all
go away…
and that
is
the
problem
