Addicted to the spotlight

It’s a dream so vain, and shallow as a birdbath,

Don’t give a fuck, cause I refuse to be ignored.

If I fade into the background, it’s of my own accord,

Regardless of how you feel, you won’t forget about me.

 

Addicted to the spotlight, and the constant camera flashes,

Plastered all over social media, you’ll never escape my presence.

Mastered the art of the networking, was birthed by the internet,

I’m the spark that you need, bringing energy to a dead society.

 

If that’s narcissistic to you, then diagnose me with NPD,

Stealing the room like a master thief, this shit is easy to me.

Getting into your head is so easy, my smile leaves you paralytic,

Got your heart palpitating irregularly like you’ve got arrhythmia.

 

I visualize my name up in lights, droves of people screaming for me,

Having so much money, that I’m running out of places to store it.

If you’re looking for humility, you should check another aisle,

Big imagination, always dreaming, but this will become my reality.
