From the “Pop Lie” single.

D
So he rode across the country in a squad of limousines
D
So he gallops through the pages of a thousand magazines
  
Here’s the gui
A
tar in his hand; here are the women by his side
  
the fresh-fucked 
D
friend, the bus bumped badly
giving head through that long ride
  
and here’s the 
A
monster in his hair, all the 
C
young girls knew was there,
  
and they 
A
loved him fiercely for it, Million
D
aire.
  
The 
D
scene it opens somberly
  
D
black and burnt out scar across a whole entire country
  
and here 
D
comes the child star
  
his 
A
striding eyes on fire through a broken blazing field
  
he’s close to 
D
tears, eyes all sincere with all the influence he wields
  
He is en
A
treating us, his cheeks all flushed, the 
C
dead wind in his hair
  
well we 
A
appreciate your efforts, Million
D
aire.
  
Oh, Million
G
aire! clap your hands, give a stunned and silent 
D
stare
  
Oh, Million
Bm
aire! strike a chord, smack a tom I just don’t 
A
care
D
Bring a polished gong for the master now he’s plastered,
  
now he’s 
A
on the runway in his robe, having circled half the globe
  
For priests and politicians seeking 
C
wisdom he might share.
  
They’re all locked 
A
safely up inside that
  
Million
G
aire! say a toast with glasses raised into the 
D
air
  
Oh, Million
Bm
aire… he’s much happier than you and he’s a million times as 
A
rare
  
There’s a 
D
glint up in the small eyes of the mouth upon the screen
  
between some t
D
eeth a speech repeated from the liquid crystal stream
  
in strides a 
A
smiling long-time rival, in a drab gray cotton smock
  
he’s heard it 
D
all before, he says, it’s all just lies, it’s all just talk.
  
Just this one 
A
time I will believe him, but I know it’s a choice,
  
and I’m 
D
aware, but just don’t care. I sign my name I raise my voice,
  
and 
A
fall disabling all alarmed; over
C
whelmed by all his charms,
  
into the 
A
warm arms of another million
D
aire.
