    15 Minutes Aflame

    Sometime in our life
    we’re supposed to get
    15 minutes of fame
    but there’s no guarantee
    cause it’s on the same paper
    with our 40 acres and the mule
    and it looks like that 15 minutes
    is being downsized to 5
    1 minute on extra
    another on satelite radio
    34 seconds on the national news
    including 4 reruns on CNN
    throw in a paragraph in usa today
    a 1 sentence mention in 400 blogs
    and maybe a few hits on google
    that’s it, you’re done
    kicked to the curb, yesterday’s news
    move on down the road
    “didn’t you use to be somebody?”
    in this godless madness
    your legacy can end up being
    mindless booberism
    and you could wind up
    with your hair on fire.

    Wow..look at the level they reduced us too,
    gotta round up our posse, round up our crew.
    15 minutes is just a drop in the hat,
    there's no way in h*ll we gonn settle for that!

    I got a real story to tell the "USA Today"
    to see and read what "Them" freaks have to say.
    How they eat their own kind, dead or alive,
    and they should be the ones reduced to 5.

    We'll turn the tides and set their hair on fire,
    that should be...our greatest desire.

    We're Kings & Queens ...but this they do know
    It takes more than 15 minutes, on their lousy @ss show!
    From here on out...we rolling first class...
    and use our one "Mule" ..to kick their @ss:wink:
