Story

Story behind the song:

I honestly have no idea where the inspiration for this song came from.  It's a fictional story of a fallen celebrity who was once an A-list star who suffered a tragic event that sent him into a downward spiral.  A low-life paparazzi journalist tracks him down to do a humiliating "where are they now" story and the song is him talking to the journalist.  No matter how much money A-list celebrities earn, it would still suck to have a camera in your face and a microphone at your mouth when you're in a really bad place in your life.  No, this isn't about Charlie Sheen!  I think he's well-earned the publicity he's gotten.  :)  It's one of my more hard-rocking tunes so feel free to bang your head if you have good health insurance.  :)

Lyrics

I did not want to

be found like this I

cannot explain

why I am this way I

am what I am

what would you do

if the world you knew

broke in pieces

would you have the strength I

could not find

just leave me be

just let me live

without the world

without the hurt

without the truth

without you

just leave me be

in my solitude

now that you have

what you came for you

can show the world

what they’re dying to see

let the parasites feed

what I am now

is at peace with

what I’ve become

can you leave it alone

I am fine on my own

(chorus)
