Former Child Actor
 (Words and Music by Corey Feldman &  Rick Springfield)


Iíve been boxed in, locked out, shut down
I want so much more

You canít see me, you canít free me
I am just your whore

I watch the faces turn away
The work I do is all in vain
I look around for someone to blame, blame

I couldíve been great, couldíve been a contender
But now I canít do shit Ďcause Iím a former child actor
My message is strength and that should be a factor
But no one gives a crap Ďcause Iím a former child actor
The war I will rage is like a nuclear reactor
But the headlines still reads heís just a former child actor
And even though that donít mean shit to you 
I still gotta sleep with me

Teenage heartthrob, life-long worst job
Donít believe the hype

Donít speak, play ball, dress nice, stay small
I am not the type

The boulevard of broken dreams was the address given to me
Iíve packed my bags long to be free, free

The label is set, shouldíve put a tag there
On my birth certificate it reads former child actor
I hear you loud and clear, you better get a gag dead
No one wants to hear a word from former child actors
No one likes spite and I donít mean to be bitter
But what did you expect Iím just a former child actor
And even though that donít mean shit to you 
I still gotta drink your pee

I couldíve been great, couldíve been a contender
But now I canít do shit Ďcause Iím a former child actor
My message is strength and that should be a factor
But no one gives a crap Ďcause Iím a former child actor
The war I will rage is like a nuclear reactor
But the headlines still reads heís just a former child actor

The label is set, shouldíve put a tag there
On my birth certificate it reads former child actor
I hear you loud and clear, you better get a gag dead
No one wants to hear a word from former child actors
No one likes spite and I donít mean to be bitter
But what did you expect Iím just a former child actor
And even though that donít mean shit to you
