Syntax: Fame Game transcribed lyrics

Syntax - Mike Tournier and Jan BurtonHere’s an initial attempt at a transcription for Fame Game, as presented in pre-album format on the Syntax MySpace.

There’s a few dodgy moments, particularly in verse two. If you have any improvements, feel free to add them in the comments or drop me an email!

White delight is a line for many
Credit cards and rolled up money
That innocence is taken from me
I don’t mind though it won’t kill me
Reservoirs of stars a plenty
Singing songs their voices empty
Realise life’s back too long
Reemphasise that inner turmoil

Come undone I’m so delirious
My cover’s blown is this serious fame game?
Come on man I’m not mysterious
Understand this is the serious fame game
Like a knighted child of in-home destiny
Please don’t try to help or rescue me
I stand up proud and make no sound
I’m up and down and I’m almost drowned

Sinners within us
Absolute beginners
The image of who or what to deliver
Obssessed with an image
In the public eye
Suggested by carnage when wondering why
You know cigarettes and alco-tonic
Give them more
They know you want it
Give them reasons
To deceive
Change the seasons
They don’t need

Come undone I’m so delirious
My cover’s blown is this serious fame game?
Come on man I’m not mysterious
Understand this is the serious fame game
Like a knighted child of in-home destiny
Please don’t try to help or rescue me
I stand up proud and make no sound
I’m up and down and I’m almost drowned

Like a knighted child of in-home destiny
Please don’t try to help or rescue me
I stand up proud and make no sound
I’m up and down and I’m almost drowned
