Celebrity

I would like to go inside a celebrity,
To see what they see, feel what they feel,
To see the sweaty work,
To see the drunken party,
To see the pounding dance,
To see the masked people,

To see beautiful excitement bring me down the bloody carpet way,

To feel the starving pressure,
To feel the drugged stress,
To feel the stalking flashes,
To feel the designer wealth,
To feel the Grammy award pride,

To feel flaming confidence melt off me into a pool of tears,

To see the smiling life, feel the warming life,
To see the crying life, feel the burning life.
