Started life just sound of the inside,
Dreamed of breaking in from the outside,
Broke free from the chains of society,
Bought your ticket in the social lottery,

Sold your soul for a place in the spotlight,
But the darkness always dims the sunlight,
Brightest colors shined on the surface,
Sacrificed yourself to serve their purpose.

Your colors
Ran deeper then,
Then they pushed the needle in,
And bled your colors out.

Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar

Stars shine within the faded photographs,
Weak attempts within the feeble paragraphs,
Flashbulbs drowning out the moonlight,
Images that transcend black & white,
For a time, you outshined everone,
We all turned to see what you'd become,
The Brightest Flame that burned with such intensity,
Now flickering out, oh so tragically,

Your colors
Ran deeper then,
Then they pushed the needle in,
And bled your colors out.

Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar.
Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar

And they took you in,
And they used you up.

The Grande Illusion took your soul,
And what you didn't give
Well, you know they stole.
Broken, battered, strung out and shattered,
They took you in,
how they took you in...

Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar
Pack your bags,
(Headed out to Hollywood)
Cut your ties,
(Leave behind your neighborhood)
Change your name,
Forget who you are,
Stick with me kid,
You're gonna be a superstar
