Terminal Fame
Lyrics and music by Michael Louis

Verse 1:
Down in this low, I’m crawling
Searching for a barren place to hide
Curtains for my last act, are falling
Leaving me naked, and void of pride

Defeat and vanity,
Hand in hand
If only I could be once more,
In demand
If only I could be once more,
In demand

Musical Break

Verse 2:
Youth is a curse, when fading
Time is cruel on the face that lives for lights
Fame is, at its best, degrading
An exchange of banality, high on price

Years pass like winter days,
Fast and cold
Hollow from the inside-out
Bought and sold

This pain of aging is harrowing
My window of time is narrowing
I see my face a million times, in broken glass
I tell myself a million lies, at each impasse

This pain of aging is harrowing
I see my face a million times, in broken glass

Repeat Chorus
