Track Name: Star of the Movie
Do you have a minute to tell me a thing that is on your mind?
Do you have a minute to tell me a thing that you hope to find here?
But you don’t got time for me
Unless I got the hook-up to the keys to the city
To the big big city where the Star of the Movie is you

Oh now you've decided to talk, and you tell me about your art
Sounding like a robot that’s programed to sound like it’s really smart
And has profound opinions
What do you prove
By showing me how steadily your mouth can move?
In the big big city where the Star of the Movie is you, always you

Yeah it’s true
We’re all living that golden dream
But I swear to god it doesn’t have to mean
That every time you shake a hand, or break a smile
You're faking the style of the Star of the Movie

Could you for a second just turn off the sale and look me in the face
If you look for long enough you might remember I’m a member of the human race
And funny thing, so are you
Why don't we treat each other that way too?
In the big big city where the race never ends
The big big city where no one’s really friends
But we’re all in this together and we’re smiling for the camera
And the Star of the Movie
Is you
