lyrics

In the hotel lobbies, background parties, on the bandstand
is the voice of one who makes his living late at night
because our prophet’s not respected in his homeland
he will make his money singing covers on the mic
so won’t you sing that song that makes them people happy?
for the politician and the corporate businessman?
‘cause your message to the world is getting buried
you’re the voice of reason in the drunken dance
so Coverboy!

Chorus
Coverboy, cover take
no-one listens when you play
entertainer, you must make these people sing, sing, sing
Coverboy, you’ll go far
‘cause undercover at the bar
sleeper agent, you were made to be a star, star, star, star, star

You were made to be a star, star! (you were made to be a star)


So you must exorcise these demons on the dance floor
for the wayward bodies drinking Babylonian wine
for they know not all the words that they’ve been singing
are killing people all the freakin’ time
so Coverboy!

Chorus | Solos | Chorus
