And I'm sure you'd like to know why we're not Ill tell you ....
He loved her
And she's not here right now because of you
....Fame is a disease
We all got it We're all sharing needles with it If you're not careful
You will die before you die
I mean, look at us
Put the suicide note down
AND LOOK AT US
Half of these things I cant even pronounce
Did you notice "Xanax" reads the same forward and backward?
I thought it was funny
Apparently my apartment on Broome Street
Did not sweep enough under the rug
So now you see what you've done
Now you know how I got these scars
See, the camera keeps rolling
Like a wheel
Turning your insides
You can't have a normal life
Without a production team
With a search warrant for your bad day
How many tabloids do you think it took to ruin him, hmm?
How many gossip sites did it take?
How many lines of cocaine do you think we need to forget
That everyday we're getting farther and farther away
FROM EVERYTHING We love
Oh you thought he was acting?
Oh You think I'm not real
Oh I'm real
REEL TO REEL
And when you 're sick with fame like him
You need people like me to keep you laughing
So when the lady left with everything
I said "Why So Serious?"
Just take two Ambien
Those are good for the nightmares
Take one of these
Two of those
A whole fuckload of these
I kept the bathroom cabinets jokes coming
Because Painkillers can shove your mistakes off a balcony
And you can still smile about it
You think you know him
I was there
I was there to tell him that if were gonna go anywhere
We were gonna go out with a bang!
So WHY SO SERIOUS!?!
