Put on your bad self
Get out your party dress
And fix up your makeup
Try to make a good impression

This is a new world
Were all the same here
Well, maybe not the same
But you know what I mean

I've got everything that you want
I've got everything and
Someday Ill be president
And I've got everything that you want
I've got everything
Except the single thing you really need

Separate love from addiction
Its not the same
I know I see desperation pulling my strings

Hey, eliza, now what do you want?
I play piano, and I sing like a hummingbird
And, oh, I forgot that
Hummingbirds don't sing
It doesn't matter really
You know what I mean

I've got everything that you want
I've got everything
And its a brand new world, eliza
I've go everything that you want
I've got everything
Except the single thing you really need

Set away blood and rejection
I know I see the generation staring back at me
Wasted away
Wasting my time
This picture you see
Is nothing like the one you wanted painted of me

Well, I deserve this
That's all right with me
(??) you should know (??)
It wouldnt be the first time
You know, its happened a couple of times before
Man, I don't even expect much anymore
But anyway
Its not as if I were waiting for you to come and make it all okay

Seperate between blood and rejection
I know I see visions of people running over me
Yeah, wasted away
Wasting my time
This picture you see
Is nothing like the one I wanted painted of me

Put on your bad self
Get out your party dress
And fix up your makeup
Try to make a good impression
