THE LUXE OBSESSIONS

LACK OF FEAR IN THE EYES

so i think to myself…“now why you wanna go and put starz in their eyes…it’s the same old story, well they just didn’t realize…” – a dear favorite of mine…and Safia’s, Juan’s… i look at this and i see no fear in her eyes, she’s lost those starz they put in her eyes. everything is a continuous circulation blur. delirium feeds and through the day, you start to leak and bleed. sitting stunned, in complete disbelief. staring into that cloudy nothing. a progressive stance, finally a moment of chance, prolific preparation in the advance…time…time goes by so slowly, or rather so fast now. doesn’t it? don’t let them put starz in your eyes…let go of the pride, never deny, but always try and without a doubt – just enjoy the madness of the ride.

ummmm..have to say a special thanks to ‘Hef’ aka Juan…he put me onto this lovely track.

really really…take that minute to just read through the lyrics.

They’ll be making sure you stay amused
They’ll fill you up with drugs and booze
Maybe you’ll make the evening news

And when you’re tripping over your dreams
They’ll keep you down by any means
and by the end of the night you’ll be stifling your screams

Since you became a VIPerson
It’s like your problems have all worsened
Your paranoia casts aspersions
On the truths you know

And they’ll just put you in the spotlight
And hope that you’ll do alright
Or maybe not

Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
Why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
So why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
Starz in their eyes?

Remember they said you’d show them all
Emphasise the rise but not the fall
And now you’re playing a shopping mall

Your mum and dad they can’t believe
What you appear to have achieved
While the rest of these users are just laughing in their sleeves

Since you became a VIPerson
It’s like your problems have all worsened
Your paranoia casts aspersions
On the truths you know

And now the tabloids use your face
To document your fall from grace
And then they’ll tell you that that’s just the way it goes
That’s just the way it goes

Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
It’s the same old story well they just didn’t realise
And it’s a long way to come from the dog and duck karaoke machine
And Saturday night’s drunken dreams

Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
It’s the same old story well they just didn’t realise
And it’s a long way to come from your private bedroom dance routines
And Saturday night’s drunken dreams

Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
Why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
So why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
Starz in their eyes?

Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
It’s the same old story well they just didn’t realise
And it’s a long way to come from the dog and duck karaoke machine
And Saturday night’s drunken dreams


(When I grow up im going to be famous)

Behind the steel barrier and sequence and glitter
Five inch heels still knee deep in the litter
Each of them a bitter bullshitter,
Wrapped up in the cloak of fake glamour, getting lost in the camera
Well footprints are fools gold, diamonds crusts on their one off plimsolls
So little time for these one off arseholes
Rigour mortis Ken and Barbie dolls,
A pair of big shades and a push up bra,
It’s such a short gap between the gutter and stars,
That you’ve come a long way from the place that you started
So why’d you wanna go and get so down hearted

Welcome to the kingdom of the blagger
Uncutting you nose clean, coating you bladder
A whole lot happier a whole lot sadder,
Used to be satisfied but now you feel like Mick Jagger,

Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
It’s the same old story well they just didn’t realise
And it’s a long way to come from the dog and duck karaoke machine
And Saturday night’s drunken dreams

Now why do you wanna go and put starz in their eyes?
It’s the same old story well they just didn’t realise
And it’s a long way to come from your private bedroom dance routines
And Saturday night’s drunken dreams
