Like a New Idol {Like A Rolling Stone}

Once upon a time you felt so primed
To sing out those lines and their rhymes, didn't you?
Erika'd say, "Don't be afraid, if the writer's laid
"Then you can always play any role"
You used to dream about
Winning fame by the seiyuu route
Now you don't sing so loud
Now it don't seem so proud
When you're having to ask roommates for your next meal
How does it feel
How does it feel
To be so extolled
With your future controlled
Like a new idol?

You've landed a breakout role, alright, Miss Skinny
But you'll see you're winning those dumb fanboys
Now you'll learn that they've never had any sense of class
And now you find out that they're gonna stalk you out
You said you'd never meant to burn
Any customer's lap, but your stomach turns
With what your agent thought he learned
And you're teased by that jerk of a director
While about his budget he has squealed
How does it feel
How does it feel
To have upskirts stole
To do just what your told
With your future controlled
Like a new idol?

You should've turned around when you were downtown in a rail-station run-down
And that guy came down and gave a card to you
You never understood that it ain't no good
You shouldn't 'cuse whiny Piro when he's nice to you
You used to ride on the subway with a railcard that
You got from someone named after an anime cat
Ain't it hard when you discover that
He's really no pervert rat
After you've screwed up everything to anneal
How does it feel
How does it feel
To have upskirts stole
To do just what your told
With your future controlled
Like a new idol?

Empress of the gameworlds - and all the dumbass fanboys
They're drinkin', thinkin' that you've got it made
Winning all kinds of trophies, gold, and games
But you're losing your youth and fame, you'd better look around
You used to be so adored
By crossplayers in skirts and the fickle fanboy hordes
Go to them now, they lost you, with you they're bored
Now you got nothing - you got nothing to hoard
You're invisible now, you got no lover for the years
How does it feel
How does it feel
To have been so rolled
With all your friendships stole
With your future controlled
Like an old idol?
