............. LYRICS: There’s no victims here Only volunteers You signed up for the show In spite of what you know We all understand You’re here to build a brand You’re on the road to be a wreck for all to see You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth Lying at the end of a wasted youth You’re hoping that you’ll win We’re all tuning in To the feedback loop I saw you on the soup The good times that you had Are looking really bad Trade dignity for fame That’s how to play the game You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth Lying at the end of a wasted youth After your season airs The sequel is despair Cause there’s no room for you To be on season two Your hot streak’s running cold At 26 years old Go watch your DVR To find out who you are You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth Lying at the end of a wasted youth You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth Lying at the end of a wasted youth You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth Lying at the end of a wasted youth

ABOUT:

This song is about a cast member from a reality show I worked on. This dude would talk really fast whenever someone called him out on his bad behavior and it just made him look really guilty and defensive. He did horrible things and then portrayed himself as the victim but he wasn’t fooling anyone.

~ Ben

LYRICS:

There’s no victims here
Only volunteers
You signed up for the show
In spite of what you know
We all understand
You’re here to build a brand
You’re on the road to be a wreck for all to see

You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth
Lying at the end of a wasted youth

You’re hoping that you’ll win
We’re all tuning in
To the feedback loop
I saw you on the soup
The good times that you had
Are looking really bad
Trade dignity for fame
That’s how to play the game

You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth
Lying at the end of a wasted youth

After your season airs
The sequel is despair
Cause there’s no room for you
To be on season two
Your hot streak’s running cold
At 26 years old
Go watch your DVR
To find out who you are

You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth
Lying at the end of a wasted youth

You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth
Lying at the end of a wasted youth

You can’t talk fast enough to outrun the truth
Lying at the end of a wasted youth
