Media Gold

Puts my back against a wall
Watching stars rise and fall
We give our lives for 'celebrity'
When ourselves is all we need

Media start building names
Just to shoot them down again
Create a sordid tale to tell
Give them something they can sell

Sell your dignity
Sell your soul
Sell your life for media gold

Had your time - Want yours now
It's really easy - here's how
Find some rules you can bend
If that fails then sell a friend

Count the cost of having fame
Lose your soul to be a name
Diana, Marilyn, Sidney too
They got them - next it's you?
