Lyrics

Madeline packed her bags for Sunset City
For a life that looked so pretty
In all the Craigslist ads she scoped
She drove out west with dreams to be a star
To see her name on the boulevard
The paparazzi causing strokes

But Madison leeched around through the crowded streets
Holding cardboard with cans at her feet
A name change she tried to hide

“Two Jacksons and a ten” is what she'd say
Selling love to the creeps who could pay
The failed auditions broke her pride

Different address
Different name
Same old sadness
Same old shame

No more letters sent from home
No more friends to call when feeling down
And feeling so alone

Angela met Miguel and they eloped
She got a spot on a daytime soap
Her big break for all to see
She forced the tears and tried to play the scene
Faking accents on Spanish TV
Trading love for time on screen

Jessica stroked her way to softcore pornos
And she wondered what all the fuss was
When she came home Christmas Day
A look of hatred beamed from Daddy's eyes
The little girl that he baptized
Is just a pretty pair of thighs

Different address
Different name
Same old sadness
Same old shame


No more letters sent from home
No more friends to call when feeling down
And feeling so alone


Jennifer grew attached to coke and Beam
Nursing bottles to blow off the steam
It kept the voices from her head

Eviction letters piled in her apartment
And when she woke up on the carpet
Spilled wine had stained it red

Different address
Different name
Same old sadness
Same old shame

No more letters sent from home
No more friends to call when feeling down
And feeling so alone
