There they are sitting in the glow of celebrity
They match their hairstyles and fashion to those they wannabe
Crave the lifestyles of the ones they copy
Till out of the limelight and then time for dropsy

In the 70's tried to be Lennon
Only made myself a proper lemon
Do they use celebrity as a way of life
A forceful escapism from daily strife

Heroes for today but gone in a flash tomorrow
The cost is high fashion, then borrow, borrow, borrow
Gotta keep up with the cosseted lifestyle
Stark white houses and fake tans
Today's youth are tomorrow's people
Is the future safe in their hands?

Basking in the glow of autumn
Communing with the thoughts of forest
I cast my mind to look at covers
Celebrity or me who's is the life caressed

In the 70's tried to be Lennon
Only made myself a proper lemon
Do they use celebrity as a way of life
A forceful escapism from daily strife

This disposable age of virtual reality
Taxes the soul and saps vitality
The fair of face and shallow virtue
Draw sighs of despair and wanton curfew

Will sense prevail with order restored
Or do we go down the destructive road
In sorrow we see the lure of fortune
In hope we trust society retunes

In the 70's tried to be Lennon
Only made myself a proper lemon
Do they use celebrity as a way of life
A forceful escapism from daily strife
