You left your opening open wide
And you let everyone come inside
There's always something you've got to hide
So you lied, and you lied, and you lied

Make sure you grab everything that you need
You've got a hole that you've got to feed
You try to fill it all up with your greed
But it bleeds, and it bleeds, and it bleeds

Got take a little more
We'll scrape you off the floor
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

A great big superstar
Is what you think you are
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

Nobody burns quite as bright
Well goddamn, maybe you're right
There's always battles there for you to fight
And you might, you might, you just might

But there is something I gotta say
There is a price you know you pay
Try as hard as you can to stay
He's just fading, and fading, and fading the fuck away

Go take a little more
We'll scrape you off the floor
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

A great big superstar
Is what you think you are
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

Better turn the lights down low
The cracks begin to show
We love you anyhow
But you're not so pretty now

And soon you will be gone
And we will all have one
You never mattered anyhow
And you're not so pretty now
