Rock Star

Original Artist: Ben Folds

If you want to be free, then I want you to be.
You're not mine anymore, you're public property.
You're a slave to these people who don't even know you.
You think they adore you;
They do,
Then they throw you away.

Give the people what they want.
You've got to give the people what they want.
Got to give the people what they want.

Rock star.

You can shine all alone, but you still need your friends,
to remind you that you're nothing unless you're plugged in.
'Cause baby, the truth is you need their approval,
They tell you you're cool. Hey, but look how you paid for it.

Give the people what they want.
You've got to give the people what they want.
Got to give the people what they want.

Rock star.
Rock star.
Rock star.

Oh, is that what you are?
There must be thousands of you.

So, your time is in crumbs now,
Your remain just dumped out.
You're full of it now,
All about when it runs out.

'Cause maybe you'll come back,
Yeah, maybe I'll be here.
You're already gone,
So just go 'cause they're waiting for you.

Yeah, you.

You've got to give the people what they want.
You've got to give the people what they want.

Oh, is that what you are?
