The Lyrics

I'm back, I guess. This is what happens to child actors and supporting actors once their shows die. I wrote it in 3 minutes so it sucks....
I saw an actor on the street
he was begging for change, lookin' for somethin' to eat
he seemed so sad with his eyes so low
since the network decided to cancel his show

I saw this lady and she was cryin'
she said it's hard when what you love is dyin'
I saw this child actor who is now 15 years old
he was working at McDonalds
how the world can be so cold

there's something coming around
as wicked as NBC
as wicked as a network could be

I knew this girl who's not alive anymore
she was all haggard she was only twenty-four
she said she was once on top of it all
till her ratings dropped off and it caused her downfall
I saw this other little girl on a show
she's on top of the world now, but she doesn't know
the ramifications of being in showbiz
in ten years nobody will know who she is

I always end up back on the road
lookin' down at the people, all alone
I try to meet them when I can
and I hope I don't become like that man
