 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Last night the skies turned purple and

 Past lives in light tunnels
          A chord diagramF minorFm
 Light tunnels
 Verse:
                    A chord diagramBbmBbm
 In the back of a town car, staring at myself in a tux
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Maneuvering through the people out front
              A chord diagramGbGb
 Police barricade, orange cones and we're stuck
  A chord diagramGbGb
 Twenty minutes late and my manager blowing me up

 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Security guard in the garage at the entrance
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 We roll down the window and show him our credentials
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Terrell flash the pass and he lets us continue
  A chord diagramGbGb
 Metal detectors, phone losing reception

 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I should be grateful this my nine to five
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I walk into the green room, alright, alright
            A chord diagramGbGb
 I get on YouTube tryna learn how to tie on my tie
  A chord diagramGbGb
 Fuck it, I'll wear the bolo tonight, night, night

             A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I probably shouldn't have done the drugs I've done
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 A chord diagramA majorA couple of days ago, detox son
              A chord diagramGbGb
 I forgot my belt at the hotel
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Fuck, now my team all scrambling to help, this sucks

                      A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I need something to cope, ain't nothing to cope
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I eat a banana and I drink a cup of Throat Coat
                   A chord diagramGbGb
 I wish I had the homies with me here but nope
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Most of the artists that I know don't get invited to this show

          A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Because success to them determines our value
       A chord diagramGbGb
 The make-up, the power, hairspray, perfume, makeup and powder
   A chord diagramGbGb
 The ratings come down to who's popular now in the song in the hour
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Knock at the door, I let them in, hair and makeup now, red carpet in ten
       A chord diagramGbGb
 She covers up my freckles, concealer on my chin
 A chord diagramGbGb
 I look orange but she swears it looks natural with my skin

       A chord diagramBbmBbm
 The show is starting, they take me to my seat
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Walk in the arena, feel the ego of elites
           A chord diagramAbAb
 Like the whole industry is staring at me
  A chord diagramAbAb
 A chord diagramA majorA row away from Taylor, two away from Jay and Bey

 CHORUS:
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Last night the skies turned purple and
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Past lives in light tunnels
         A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Light tunnels
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 So that's who we are
                  A chord diagramAbAb
 Just like the stars
 A chord diagramAbAb
 Shine your light on
 A chord diagramAbAb                   A chord diagramDbDb
 Shine your light on


 Verse:
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Curtain opens up, host walks out
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 We stand in unison and applaud real loud
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I watch the other people that have been around for a while
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Just excited I got invited, feeling cool in the crowd

           A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Thinking such and such is bold, look at such and such's gold
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Damn, such and such in real life, looks really fuckin' old
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Such and such is fine, she's with such and such, oh
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I'm here but I'm barely even watching the show

       A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Cause tonight we toast to our accomplishments
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Insecurity dressed up as confidence
 A chord diagramBbmBbm         A chord diagramAbAb
 I said tonight we toast to our accomplishments
 A chord diagramAbAb
 Insecurity dressed up as confidence

      A chord diagramBbmBbm
 An award is given out, commercial, reset the scene
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 They keep saying, "Coming up soon is the Biebs"
           A chord diagramGbGb
 Watch celebrities take selfies with celebrities
 A chord diagramEbmEbm
 It feels so make believe

 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 They want the gossip, they want the drama
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 They want Britney Spears to make out with Madonna
             A chord diagramGbGb                                              A chord diagramEbmEbm
 They want Kanye to rant and to go on longer, cause that equates to more dollars

                      A chord diagramBbmBbm
 They want talking topics, they want trending topics
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 They want outfits to be outlandish, they want sideways glances
  A chord diagramGbGb
 Beef and problems, they want nipple slips
            A chord diagramEbmEbm
 Cause they live for clicks, this is economics

          A chord diagramBbmBbm
 So we Botox our skin and we smile for the camera
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Might as well get a new nose while we're at it
  A chord diagramGbGb
 This is America, insecurity's our fabric
  A chord diagramEbmEbm
 And we wear it and we renamed it fashion

     A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I look to my right, there's a cameraman snapping
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Picture after picture after sister after sister
         A chord diagramGbGb
 Of the line of Kardashians, mind so distracted
     A chord diagramAbAb
 Realized there's an ovation and everyone's clapping

 Chorus:
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Last night the skies turned purple and
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Past lives in light tunnels
         A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Light tunnels
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 So that's who we are
                  A chord diagramAbAb
 Just like the stars
 A chord diagramAbAb
 Shine your light on
 A chord diagramAbAb
 Shine your light on

 Verse:
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 It's just weird when the camera's on you
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Gotta remember to still clap if I lose
 A chord diagramGbGb
 I see myself up on the screen
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Split into five different artists on TV

                A chord diagramBbmBbm
 And just look normal, don't get turned into a meme
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Relax, breathe
            A chord diagramGbGb
 (And the award goes to: Macklemore and Ryan Lewis)
  A chord diagramGbGb
 Me

    A chord diagramBbmBbm
 There's a stranger holding my award
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I give her an awkward hug she says "It's yours"
  A chord diagramGbGb
 Think I'm supposed to kiss her on the cheek
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Man, I should have prepared an acceptance speech

       A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Do I talk first? Is it Ryan? Is it me?
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Fuck it, I'll take the lead, grab the mic, say my piece
       A chord diagramAbAb
 Do I look at camera one? Do I look at camera three?

   A chord diagramDbDb
 I promise, I'm honored, I'd like to thank God, my momma and father
                A chord diagramAbAb
 I'd like to thank Tricia, the mother of my daughter
 A chord diagramAbAb
 I couldn't have done it without you all in my corner
                  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Especially the fans, been here since the beginning
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Supported the music, allowed us to be independent
          A chord diagramAbAb
 And I know, I shouldn't be long-winded
  A chord diagramAbAb
 Wait, hold up, don't play the music, let me finish

 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 This feels so narcissistic, dressed as a celebration to conceal it's a business
 A chord diagramAbAb
 Me, me, me, my, my image, my, my songs, my self interest
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 One big reality show that is scripted
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 And I can keep trying or get off the competition
 A chord diagramAbAb
 I'd rather run out of my fifteen minutes
 A chord diagramAbAb
 Than have life past me by and I forget to live it

 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 But that doesn't mean retirement
  A chord diagramBbmBbm
 But I don't like who I am in this environment
 A chord diagramAbAb
 I forgot what this art's for
  A chord diagramAbAb
 I didn't get through Freshman year to drop out as a Sophomore

 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Here I am in this arena, yeah, I'm scared
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 I got the people's attention, don't wanna lose it here
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Thinking about my career, miserable here
 A chord diagramGbGb
 But wanna make sure I'm invited next year

         A chord diagramBbmBbm
 To the same damn party, celebrities and aisles
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Same blank stares, same fake smiles
  A chord diagramAbAb
 Same big budget production
 A chord diagramAbAb
 I know now who I am when the lights go out and it falls down

          A chord diagramDbDb
 And the curtain closes, nobody notices
  A chord diagramDbDb
 Wanted to throw up the Roc, wanted to be Hova
   A chord diagramGbGb
 Wanted to be Wayne with the accent from the 'Nolia
   A chord diagramGbGb
 Thought I'd feel better when the award show was over

 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 But I guess I showed up late
 A chord diagramBbmBbm
 Almost got cut off when they closed the gate
         A chord diagramAbAb
 Just in time, what will I say?
 A chord diagramAbAb
 Time to explain this unruly mess I've made

 A chord diagramGbGb
 I guess I showed up late
 A chord diagramGbGb
 Almost got cut off when they closed the gate
           A chord diagramAbAb
 Just in time, what will I say?
 A chord diagramAbAb                                     A chord diagramBbmBbm A chord diagramAbAb
 Time to explain this unruly mess I've made
