[w/Rhy.Fig.1]
   Packaged like a rebel or a hero

   Target mass appeal

   to make an audience feel
                  [w/Rhy.Fig.2]
   He really needs it

[alternate Rhy.Figs. 3&4]
   Package the illusion of persona

   Careful to conceal
[Rhy.Fig.4 twice]
   the fact that she's only too real

   she's got to screen it


   [w/Rhy.Fig.5]
   Hit you in a soft place
   a melody so sweet
   a strong and simple beat
   that you can dance to


[Rhy.Fig.6 twice, then Rhy.Fig.7, repeated]
Watch his every move
   SUPERCONDUCTOR
Orchestrate illusions
   SUPERCONDUCTOR
Watch his every move
   SUPERCONDUCTOR
Hoping you'll believe
Designing to deceive
That's entertainment

[w/Rhy.Fig.8 into next verse]

[sim.]
He can put a target on the market
bask in your applause
reality withdraws
no he believes it

the role becomes the actor
she's addicted to applause
the stage a world because
she never leaves it

[sim.]
hit you in a soft place
with sentimental ease
they know the fantasies
that you romance to

[sim.]
Watch her every move
SUPERCONDUCTOR
She can manipulate reactions
SUPERCONDUCTOR
Watch her every move
SUPERCONDUCTOR
Pin the donkeys on her tail
Fantasy for sale
That's entertainment...

[Rhy.Fig.9]
(Guitar tacet)

[Rhy.Fig.10]
[Rhy.Fig.5]
Hit you in a soft place

with sentimental ease
they know the fantasies
that you romance to

[Rhy.Fig.6 twice, then Rhy.Fig.7, repeated]
WATCH his every move
   SUPERCONDUCTOR
Orchestrate illusions
   SUPERCONDUCTOR
Watch his every move
   SUPERCONDUCTOR
Hoping you'll believe
Designing to deceive

[Rhy.Fig.12 twice, then Rhy.Fig.13, repeated,
                         with synth playing Rhy.Fig.11]
Watch her every move

She can manipulate reactions
SUPERCONDUCTOR

SUPERCONDUCTOR
Pin the donkeys on her tail
Fantasy for sale
That's entertainment...

[Rhy.Fig.14 twice, then Rhy.Fig.15, repeated,
                         with synth playing Rhy.Fig.16]
Watch his every move

Hoping you'll believe
Designing to deceive
