Lyrics

In the venetian lounge, everyone's your best friend
But despite the good time, you will dine and dash
So by the way we all know you don't want us here no more
You're spending time you have leached at the attention store

“Who needs high school?
It gets in the way of my success”
You say that firmly
But descend into trailer trash
when your rich dad ain't there no more
To fund the illusion of your Hollywood score

You invite the whole town to show you're the best
But after the show you will screw the rest
So I don't think you know a thing about us anymore
You're now sipping the shots, 2,000 miles from home

“Who needs high school?
It gets in the way of my success”
You say that firmly
But descend into trailer trash
when your rich dad ain't there no more
To fund the illusion of your Hollywood score

I see through your ways
You are like a pest
I see through the haze
You are like the rest

I see through your ways
You are like a pest
I see through the haze
You are like the rest

You left us behind
For a path based on luck
You left us behind
For a path based on luck

“Who needs high school?
It gets in the way of my success”
You say that firmly
But descend into trailer trash
when your rich dad ain't there no more
To fund the illusion of your Hollywood score


About Venetian Lounge

Venetian Lounge presents the consequences of yearning to be the center of attention. The person in this song pretends to be friends with a bunch of people so she can have a large crowd show up at her flashy celebration. After the celebration, she never shows gratitude to the people who supported her. A few years later, she moves to Hollywood expecting to automatically become famous, but in reality she is just riding around with daddy’s money. This is a ticking time bomb for her, she can only rely on her father for so long and people from her town are too turned off by her. This song reminds us that attention needs to be earned honestly and through hard work.
