United States of America, Planet Earth's anus
Where you can be famous for being famous
Where you can be maimed & remain nameless
Cops paint your plasma on pavement wavin the stainless
Their aim is not stellar, hell is unholstered
Shootin up your Chevy, blackholes in your supernova
When the shootin's over, 20 blue suits on hand
They on the stand doing the Nuetron Dance
Public defender shines light on a dead client
A badge turned a coward white dwarf to red giant
Bodies flying, Cirque du Soleil
Mistook a Milky Way for a weapon at the Circle K
Blood spatter patterns look like a constellation
But for a grieving mother...what's the consolation?
Secret indictment might give the answer
Her sons a shooting star, caught it all on a body camera

Twinkle Twinkle Little Star
Sparkle like a lit cigar in the dark - we glow.
Drawn to this - the flicker - moths, bitches, mosquitos -
When you on, anonymous starfuckers get you off - people turned to peepholes.
Seek glory to be whole, We broke, needy to blow to eat
So then we deepthroat media mogul egos
For the meaty roles, vegan hoes kill for the part, play it,
All while niggas stargaze in starvation
Start praying - But we kicked god for a kickstarter
Wishing upon a star? Then it’s prolly Miss Carter
Chicks starry-eyed for small fry pricks with a big start up
Then they be startled when they their star-crossed lover lost bucks and they get starched when they’re starstruck/
When the stars align, the land of stars and stripes becomes the land of hearts & likes,
But every starlet’s hotness dulls and Tony Stark rusts
When your all-star rating devolves to one
Your star on the walk of fame dissolves to stardust - the question for all us is...

Is it shadiness behind shades?
Admirers mired inside a gaze
Clear nights trapped inside of days
Taken to the sky to be eyed in every space
Shining in steady pace, Cast light to heavy face
Be all that glitters, cause gold is sold in the mirror
An unfortunate fortune that can't be read any clearer
A wish on descent is spent
As followers turned astrologers define your alignments
Did it force his course North or was it forces colliding?
The enterprise is flying on the trek that you're guiding
Enterprises are rising on the checks your providing
And as your glow grows ever closer to supernova
Before that light reaches the iris your life is over
That brief span with many moons shoulder to shoulder
The constellations prize a fall from high sober

Way up high
Apple of my eye
We all sit and marvel as you dazzle in the sky
Never been shy
The fire that never dies
And we love it
The public can't touch it, but some try to rise
It's dangerous flying with wax feathers
so to cop a space shuttle or better we stack cheddar
I might pawn a piece of the whole for some goals
The globe is a rotisserie cooking up slow
But I know that most of us are suffering heatstroke
Chasing mirages, mansions and speedboats
big booty bitches!
Yessir I need those
I want a shine that'll stretch from west to the east coast
The fame
The quest to be a household name
Shti is really messing with my brain, man
I got a little bit of money and it's burning in my pocket
'bout to empty out the bank and build a rocket


If you raise your glasses high
you might see across the sky
