Fame lost its appeal for me when I went into a public restroom
and an autograph seeker handed me a pen and paper under the stall door.
And now the tabloids use your faceJust the way it goes...
To document your fall from grace
And they tell you that that's just the way it goes...
—Just Jack, Starz in their eyes
What of fame?And never again, are you alone..//
Everyone knows your face, the world screams your name
Living on a lighted stageTo keep oneself intact
Approaches the unreal
For those who think and feel
In touch with some reality
Beyond the gilded cage
Cast in this unlikely role
Ill-equipped to act
With insufficient tact
One must put up barriers
"I asked to be successful. I never asked to be famous."
