I'm a virtual star
I'm a virtual star
Hey, everybody knows my name
But I’m not gettin too far

I'm a barrel of time
goin' over the falls
I'm the great big tidal wave
when the ice cap thaws

and lately It don’t matter too much
what’s the truth and what’s a lie
Time’s standin’ still,
so you make up your own mind

I'm so stuck in my head
that I'm out of my head
My mind is so alive
that I'm practically dead

I don’t know what I want
I don’t know what I need
And since I don’t seem to know shit
How’s a guy to succeed ?

One day you looked up to find
Time was knocking on your door
Was it too late to still want something more ?

I'm a virtual man
but I'm not virtually hard
Am I just that throbbing fool
in your virtual backyard ?

I'm so caught up in you
Am I that caught up in you
That I just care what time it is ?
Hey, but that’s what you do
That’s what you do

I know I’m way too obvious
But there’s some things you can’t hide
Time opened up and you took me for a ride

I know what I need
I have no clue what I want
but there ain’t no alarm clock set
That I’ll tell you upfront

I'm the virtual king
of this virtual thing
and I can’t even tell what’s real
and I’m not even looking

I'm a virtual star
Just me and my guitar
Time to go cruising down the road
in the virtual car
virtual car

I’m a virtual . .

Virtual Star
I like the situation described in your tune, and hear einstien's reference to NY - not only vocally, but cool melodic injections and lyrical observations. Cover illustration works very well for this listener too. Welcome.
