A humorous but serious music video statement on the Idol phenomenon. Idle Idol by John Mingolla


He's just seventeen and still in a dream
Smart and naive, sweet as ice cream
Sings in a bar where he is the star
Five minutes you know won't go very far

Oh sing us a song we'll tell you it's wrong
And cast you aside, who cares about your pride
Sing us a song you know it's all wrong
Who cares about your pride

To the city he goes with only his clothes
A fight to the death using only his breath
The judges will choose, he thinks he won't lose
Naked he stands in front of the fans

Oh sing us a song we'll tell you it's wrong
And cast you aside, who cares about your pride
Sing us a song you know it's all wrong
Who cares about your pride

They've broken his heart, is that very smart?
Shattered his dream as sweet as ice cream
No future they said, you're as good as dead
Go back to your village and cry on your bed

Oh sing us a song we'll tell you it's wrong
And cast you aside, who cares about your pride
Sing us a song you know it's all wrong
Who cares about your pride

Manipulation, humiliation money and greed
Throw them a bone and watch them bleed
Allas, they say it's the capital way
The artist is killed he's merely the prey
Starry Starry night, Vincent was right
The idol machine is winning the fight

Oh sing us a song we'll tell you it's wrong
And cast you aside, who cares about your pride
Sing us a song you know it's all wrong
Who cares about your pride
Manipulation, humiliation money and greed
Throw them a bone and watch them bleed
