lyrics

Well, it’s not a big deal, if you lost, you will win some, some day soon. And it’s not a big scene: if you didn’t make it, don’t make one. Well, it’s anyone’s guess if you’ll be famous, so just pretend you’ve had success and now you need reclusiveness.

The Catcher in the Rye dropped from the public eye years ago. Pretend you’re that guy. You just might be, for all I know. Because getting famous is hot, but being famous is not, and some chumps will take the lumps, but it’s lonely at the top.

Greta Garbo was well known. She wanted to be left alone. Kurt Cobain was all that was in. We don’t need to say what happened to him. You don’t need all that, you’re already where it’s at, that’s a fact. So just go back to your pad and keep up your act, because it’s anyone’s guess if you’ll be famous, so just pretend you’ve had success and now you need reclusiveness.
