Fading Into ObscuritySo many stories I can tell.
I had the world under a spell.
Does this even ring a bell?
I wonder because
Don't you know who I was?
Interest in me dissipated
All my methods antiquated
I've been cast away
Lost and friendless today
I made a name for myself when one could do such a thing
A reputation that's held together by string
So I chose to cherish those who think there's some purity
To fading into obscurity.
What works on paper has the tendency to ride on vapor
Sometimes what's not to love but then other times what's to like?
I'm unable to tell if I know who I am
A modest success, a shill or a sham?
I'm not afraid of what I've made of but my trajectory
Has me fading into obscurity
You kids will have to fend for yourselves
Because your mother's gone and as for the elves
Who used to do all the work around here
Well they're not gonna do it anymore
You kids can kiss your mother goodbye
And I'll give you 20 minutes to cry
She used to do all the work around here
But she's not gonna do it anymore
And you're getting too old to be cared for...
and for that matter
This caked is baked, but I much preferred the batter
Perhaps in part because it had so much potential
To be delicious and still be influential
If the evidence that I've provided explains what I mean
But it's too late now cause I can't see or be seen
And I know you'd only shrug through my tears
So I'm not going to shed them anymore
Out of favour with the flavour of the week's where I'll be
And fading into obscurity
An outsider but in good company
I'm fading into obscurity
