Written about the tacky world of celebrity:

We don’t want your recognition
Keep that to yourself
We’re not a band without ambition
If I do say so myself

We don’t squeal and kiss the air
That’s not our scene
Not one drop of our self-worth
Depends on your acceptance of me

It’s a pantomime
None of it is real
The people are fakes
Awards are just deals
It’s a pantomime
The power is cash
Every life you lead is
An engineered
Car crash

Every move is calculated
It’s all just public relations
She shaved her head and he’s in rehab
Addicted to the good vibrations

It’s a pantomime
None of it is real
The people are fakes
Awards are just deals
It’s a pantomime
The power is cash
Every life you lead is
An engineered
Car crash

It won’t seem like the perfect scheme
Go back to bed and come up with another dream

Solo

Chorus then:

It’s a pantomime
None of it is real
The people are fakes
Awards are just deals
Publicity
Is the name of the game
It’s a high price to pay
For your riches and fame
