    The song is meant to be mocking fame. The pace and general mood of the song is contemplative and worldly indicating that there's something below the surface. "Probably thought that my career be short and sweet. Wishin' I was in your shoes, I'd take them off and find a beach." Is the first clue that he feels empty being famous. Name in lights, lighters in the sky, different city every night are ways he tries to convince himself he's famous but he doesn't care about it. "Sex, drugs, and entertainment get so instantaneous...And pray death is quick and painless" is about getting distracted and caught up in fame is how you live with fame but it doesn't necessarily bring happiness. He says, "it's better to be rich and famous" but it's said in a way to try to convince himself when in reality he feels sad and alone. He even ends the song with "Kiss my motherfuckin' ass" in a serious tone. Indicating that this song was made in spite of being famous. That the cliche of being famous is true and sometimes, there are benefits of being alone and at peace.
