Based on the character of Billy from the film Ladies and Gentlemen the Fabulous Stains.


I saw you try to write about it by and by
I saw you take notes
And in between of all the little margin lines
I saw the big joke
And every day you keep on lookin' at me with the same ol' blank expression on your face
And anyway you wanna get around it I can always tell
always tell
always tell
when you play

Camera speed
Sound check
Lights up

Keep on rollin'
keep on rollin'
for me
Keep on runnin'
Keep on runnin'
the scene

The cameraman is always such a flatterer
He knows your best side
and framing you in adolescent canvases
so you'll never die
And every day you keep up the rehearsing
looking in the mirror for little hints
Your friends are such a needy bunch of clingers-on
sing the song
read the blog
Someday you'll be just like them
