Track Name: To Be A Famous One
To Be A Famous One
Track Name: Famous On The Inside (Famous On The Outside)
When We Feel Famous On The Inside
Then We Get Famous On The Outside
When We Get Famous On The Inside
Then We Get Famous On The Outside

Rollin round in tinseltown
Got surround sound bangin and the bass pounds low
Didn't know if I'd make it
But I'm famous now I'm not going home

I ain't braggin but you know the scene's about to pop
Now you got me started know that imma never stop
See me when you walk in, drop in, rockin, locked in
Getting paper like I'm fetty wap

Fame Came
My Way (When We Feel Famous On The Inside)
Today
I Pray (Then We Get Famous On The Outside)
This World
Will Here (When We Feel Famous On The Inside)
The Words
I say (Then We Get Famous On The Outside)

Call me up when you're feeling down
And you don't think that you're gonna get that gold
Just fake it till you make it
Was the best advice that I was ever told

I remember the november when I had enough
Thought that I would never make it should I give it up?
But I kept on believing, dreaming
Now the fame is knocking down my door

Fame Came
My Way (When We Feel Famous On The Inside)
Today
I Pray (Then We Get Famous On The Outside)
This World
Will Here (When We Feel Famous On The Inside)
The Words
I say (Then We Get Famous On The Outside)

Taking off at the speed of sound
You'll be gone with the wind if you go too slow
All you gotta do is feel it
And the fame inside you will begin to grow

And you don't know if you deserve it
But you gotta snatch it up anyway (I would never leave LA I love it)
Yeah you betta go believe it seize it
Do not wait for it another day

He's my best friend
On the west end
All the gold men
Wanna be him

All the old gods
And the new gods
Are the gold gods
In the basin

I dont need them
To remind me
Why I'm famous
Cuz I know it

And when I feel
That it is real
You know I will
Never blow it

I don't sit back
I don't take naps
I don't waste tracks
I don't fake rap

I don't go all ham on the mic
Till the lights turn bright
And I might
Make fat stacks

I don't wanna wait till my judgement day
T'hear em' say that I did OK no way
I don't wanna wait till the gold gets cold and the Oscar's sold to a crass hack

Fame Came
My Way (When We Feel Famous On The Inside)
Today
I Pray (Then We Get Famous On The Outside)
This World
Will Here (When We Feel Famous On The Inside)
The Words
I say (Then We Get Famous On The Outside)

Look Into the Fame

Track Name: Every Angeleno Knows
When you're sittin there in traffic you can feel it
And when you step into the ocean you can heal it
It's what every Angeleno knows
What every Angeleno knows

And when you're sittin in the movies you can see it
And when you're starrin in that movie you can be it
It's what every Angeleno knows
What every Angeleno knows

Angeleno (every angeleno knows) x2

And every angeleno knows
A little fame is gonna come tonight
And every angeleno knows
A little fame is gonna set things right

And when you're listening to music you can hear
Driving down the boulevard you're getting near it
It's what every angeleno knows
What every angeleno knows

When you're sittin there in traffic you can feel it
And when you step into the ocean you can heal it
It's what every Angeleno knows
What every Angeleno knows

And every angeleno knows
A little fame is gonna come tonight
And every angeleno knows
A little fame is gonna set things right

Oh Angeleno
Oh Angeleno don't you know
Track Name: Contacts
I know this after party isn’t so bumpin
I only thought to go
Because of all the legs that I could be humpin
But none of them did show

I’m sorry if it isn’t what you expected
But this is how it works
I thought I’d schmooze but now I’m standing corrected
So we should ditch these jerks

I already went to say goodbye
I already went to say goodbye to them
I already went to say goodbye (goodnight)
I already went to say goodbye to them
And let em know…
That you and me are about to go
I let em know
We're free

Now it’s just you and me like we always wanted
And the night’s so young
Let’s go home and leave the streets to be haunted
By the un-famous ones

But wait a minute who is that on the corner
In the director’s chair
With a copy of Hollywood Reporter
And the thin grey hair

Wait right here
It’s Spielberg

Hello Steven
I’m your biggest fan

And I’d love to work with you sometime
Here’s my headshot just drop me a line
Any day now my IMDB page will be online

I’ve worked in film and on tv
Been in seven web series
Just graduated UCB
And I need this now

I already went to say hello
I already went to say hello to him
I already went to say hello (hey yo)
I already went to say hello to him
And let him know…
That I just finished up with a show
I let him know
I'm free

I want to thank you Mr. Spielberg (Spielberg)

Track Name: Spielberg's Eyes
Spielberg's Eyes

On every plain old desert road
There's a friend that you can get to know
Just amblin' under clear blue skies
When you see the world through Spielberg's eyes

C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes
C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes

Going for a swim at night
Feels like you're surrounded by great whites
You can feel the jaws around your thigh
When you see the world through Spielberg's eyes

C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes
C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes

Dolly Zoom Boogie Dolly Zoom Boogie
Spielberg Swing Spielberg Swing

Dolly Zoom Boogie Dolly Zoom Boogie
Spielberg Swing Spielberg Swing

Spielberg's Eyes

You go out walking in the park
Feel like a raider raiding the lost ark
You can punch all of those Nazi spies
When you see the world through Spielberg's eyes

C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes
C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes

And when you're feeling all alone
And you're house doesn't feel like a home
And when you're eyes are filled with tears
That's when ET says I'll be right here

C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes
C'mon now, C'mon now
See the world through Spielberg's eyes

Track Name: Do You Remember?
Do you remember that night in LA
When everyone famous came over to say
We're glad that you joined us and we hope you stay
We know you'll be famous like us one day

Do you remember that house in the hills
Where all of the stars came over to chill
They lifted you up and said that they were thrilled
To see you get famous yes we know you will

Cause everybody knows
That you're great
You'll be famous like Spielberg
Just like Spielberg

Do you remember having drinks by the pool
Chatting with Clooney barely keeping your cool
Then you and Scorsese had a pool noodle duel
Everyone laughed when you got totally schooled

Remember playing piano with Sting
And all the celebrities gathered to sing
They sang of the wonders that fame can bring
They sang of an age when Hollywood was king

They sang everybody knows
That you're great
You'll be famous like Spielberg
Just like Spielberg

Remember (Dreams of Spielberg)
Remember (Sometimes come to you)
Remember (Please remember)

Your dreams shining bright like the lights
Like the headlights (Here he comes)
Here he comes (In his Prius)
Mr. Spielberg is on his way

Do you remember at a quarter to three
It was just you Al Pacino and Flea
You took a limousine down to the sea
With your head out the moonroof so carefree

Remember when morning was near
You sat on the sand at Santa Monica Pier
Do you remember letting go of your fears
You knew you'd be famous within a year

Cause everybody knows
That you're great
You'll be famous like Spielberg
Just like Spielberg

Remember (Dreams of Spielberg)
Remember (Sometimes come to you)
Remember (Please remember)

Your dreams shining bright like the lights
Like the headlights (Here he comes)
Here he comes (In his Prius)
Mr. Spielberg is on his way

Do you remember that night in LA
Do you remember that night in LA
(And when you saw Spielberg walk through the door)
Do you remember that night in LA
(That's when you knew that you'd be famous for sure)
Do you remember that night in LA

Track Name: El Nino's Wake
I know that surfing on fame
Might sound lazy
And if you should jump in those waves
It will not faze me
But I can’t surf forever
One day that wave will crash to shore

If you don’t believe what I say
Just come and see
El Nino has kicked up a storm
And it has caught me
Fame can’t last forever
But I will shred it while I can

Surfing
Is one of my favorite things to do
Yeah riding on fame and
Glory until my time is through
While the stormy sea’s churning
I know that my balance will be true
I can see the world curving
Before I wipeout beneath the blue

I know you’re jealous of me
But soon my day in the sun
Will wash away with the tide
And then will anyone
In the world remember
The day the big one knocked me down

Who knows how long you can see my
IMDB Page
Up online after a war
In some apocalyptic age
Fame can’t last forever
When Wikipedia is gone

Surfing
Is one of my favorite things to do
Yeah riding on fame and
Glory until my time is through
While the stormy sea’s churning
I know that my balance will be true
I can see the world curving
Before I wipeout beneath the blue
Track Name: Buddha Head
Another bad audition
You're lying in your bed
Your Buddha head
Says you must stay positive
Oh thank you Buddha head

I have a glass
I rub a brass one
Just for good luck
And there's a stone one
Where it's overgrown
One sits in my yard

A negative vibration
Interrupts your meditation
Buddha head removes every thought of failure

You keep him on your shelf now
You dust him every day
Your Buddha head go on and light some incense for him
Thank you Buddha head

I have a glass
I rub a brass one
Just for good luck
And there's a stone one
Where it's overgrown
One sits in my yard

Buddha Head 4x
Track Name: Prayer For Intermission
He makes the movies that I love
He makes the movies we all know
He's given fame such a new name
So I want to let my love show
(Spielberg)

4x
Track Name: If I Could Do It Again
If I could do it again
This is what I'd be
I would be a famous one
And everyone would see
I would be on the tv

If I could do it again
This is what I'd be
I would be a famous one
And everyone would see
I would be a famous one
I would be in a movie

I would be a famous one
I would be a famous one

If I could do it again
This is what I'd be
I would be a famous one
Then everyone would see
I would be a famous one
I would be on the tv

This is what I'd be
This is what I'd be
Track Name: Famous Nightingale
When day becomes Hollywood night
The famous nightingale takes flight
And sings the song of hope and love
Bellowed from above, scattering the doves

Her nest lies hidden by the Y
Behind the sacred Holy sign
She sings the song of Angelyne
A tune so divine it briefly stops time

Behind the veil of pale moonlight
She stays awake to make things right
For every dreaming child of man
Who came for the fame in Hollywoodland

She fills the actor's eyes with tears
She quells the writer's deepest fears
She stirs the bard to sing his song
And pass the baton of fame on and on

Fame descends upon her wings
Breath the air
After she sings

When night becomes Hollywood day
The famous nightingale can't stay
Though she returns behind the sign
Her magic has spread from Virgil to Vine
Track Name: Oscar's Promise

Track Name: My Dog's Gonna Be Famous
Baby my dog's gonna be famous
He can sit and stay if you ask him

Baby my dog's gonna be well known
He can jump on my command

He's leaving on a train

How famous a dog be

Baby my dog's gonna be high class
He wears clothes just like a man

Track Name: My Only Dream
Goodbye Petunia
So glad I knew ya
Before the fame came
And took you away

Farewell Fiona
Nice to have known ya
Before the papers all
Put out your name

So long Alia
Can't wait to see ya
The day you take your first
Step on the stage

Goodbye Amanda
Off to the land of
Fame and Glory
That lies there in wait

All I wish they'd see
Is the face of me
On the silver screen
That's my only dream

Goodbye Eliza
I don't despise ya
Even though I sure
Wish I was there

Farewell Marguerite
Sure that you will meet
Lots of fellas
All handsome and clean

All I wish they'd see
Is the face of me
On the silver screen
That's my only dream

Hello ammonia
So glad I own ya
It might be time to just
Just time to put this to rest

But if you hear me
And you make movies
There is just one thing that'd
Make me persist

Cuz all I wish they'd see
Is the face of me
On the silver screen
That's my only dream
Track Name: IMDB Page
Won't let me get a drink at Musso's
Can't see the dummies up at Toussauds
They tell me no wherever I go

Cuz in LA you don't mean nothin if you ain't got an
IDMB page

They kicked my out of the Pacific
So I tried to take a walk in Griffith
Park ranger said that it's off limits

Cuz in LA you don't mean nothin if you ain't got an
IDMB page

No filmography
No as-seen-on-tv
No user activity
And no mean comments about me

Went to the house of intuition
To get a read on my condition
The psychic said that something's missing

Cuz in LA you don't mean nothin if you ain't got an
IDMB page (3x)
Track Name: Bel Air Pool
Baby are you a model
Baby are you an actor
Baby are you a singer

You know I gotta know
You know I gotta know

In the Bel Air Pool
In the Bel Air Pool
We could look so cool
In the Bel Air Pool
In the Bel Air Pool
In the Bel Air Pool
We could look so cool
In the Bel Air Pool

Baby are you a writer
Baby are you a comic
Baby are you a rocker

You know I gotta know
You know I gotta know

In the hotel pool
In the hotel pool
We could look so cool
In the hotel pool
In the hotel pool
In the hotel pool
We could look so cool
In the hotel pool

And if you don't have an agent babe I'm here
Tell me what I can do
And if you don't have a manager don't fear
I will be there for you

In the motel pool
In the motel pool
We could look so cool
In the motel pool
In the motel pool
In the motel pool
We could look so cool
In the motel pool
Track Name: In The Director's Chair
When the day's complete
That's when I take my seat
At the director's chair
No one there to tell me no

When it's quiet on the set
The only chance I get
In the director's chair
No one there to say it's wrong

Now I'm alone
With a vision of my own
In the director's chair
No one there to tell me no

Now I close my eyes
See the actor's in my mind
In the director's chair
No one there to say it's wrong

Take 1
Take 2
Now fade to black
Take 3
Take 4
And that's a wrap
And everyone on set claps

And when I go to sleep
I'll be filming all my dreams
In the director's chair
No one there to tell me no

And when I've gone away
I hope you'll take my place
In the director's chair
No one there to say it's wrong
No on
Track Name: Angeleno Saga Pt. 1
Long long ago
Some famous men
In famous ships
Set sail for this land

Glory to God
And the Spanish crown
Fame was what they found
They didn't know that famous one
Lived here already as they'd always done
Famous to themselves and their famous Gods
Famous was the ground

Fame is history rolling by
A famous place, a famous date
We're all history when we die
A famous face
Famous too late

Traveled the ones across this land
Planting seeds
With axes in their hands
Soon they'd be called Californian
Track Name: Angeleno Saga Pt. 2
Hollywoodland said the sign
In my time I've seen
Fame come and go
Tell me where does it go

Through a film projector lense
The light flickers and it bends
Tell me where does it go
Why do you we think that things won't change
When they always do
I don't know

Why do we think our fame will last when it isn't true
I don't know

All of this will turn to dust
Every oscar will start to rust
Tell me where does it, where does it go
Track Name: Something More Than Fame
Oscar in the ocean
Falling, Sinking
Towards something more than fame
Someone more than fame

I'm drowning in a sea of indecision
I'm hoping all this fame won't cloud my vision

And when I look deep in my heart
I'm hoping my life will be long
I'm hoping that my love will be strong
I'm hoping that my heart will stay young
I'm hoping that our lives will be fun
I hope I'm not alone in the end
I hope that I'm surrounded by friends
I'm hoping that when all is revealed
I'm hoping that I'll say what I feel
I'm hoping that the love that I gave
Means more than the money I've saved
I'm hoping that I die unknown
Famous to my children alone (2x)
