DICTION

I have no way to show you how to get the things you want.
I failed myself each time I’ve tried so you will also be flying blind.

I wanna know how it feels on the green grass of Beverly Hills
Where the spotlight brightens my day and warms my night.

Will I have to make compromise and depend on some skillful reprise?
Is it my name or is it my blood that’s on the line?

Is it more than a show?
Does it follow me home?
What’s my name?
What’s my line?
I forget most the time when undefined.

So what would you call it?
Is there a better word for dignity?
And so what if they want it?
Value-traded popularity.
Lie flat on the table.
Now we will perform your autopsy.
And finally know what you’re made of,
Verses what we’ve created,
And defend disparity.

Well, I am finally here on the green grass of Beverly Hills.
Like I’ve imagined every day, all my life.
I want to live creatively free so I won’t dance to every beat.
Even though I do suppose I’m keeping time.

Is it cold when the chill of the crowds change their will?
When their words meet your ears and what they have to say may be true but you won’t hear? You won’t hear.

So what would you call it?
I need a little dose of decency?
And so what if they want it,
Value-traded popularity?
Lie flat on the table.
Now we will perform your autopsy.
And finally know what you’re made of,
Verses what you’ve created,
And defend disparity.
