Interesting and sophisticated
Refusing to be celebrated
It's a monumental big screen kiss
It's so deep it's meaningless
One day you'll just up and quit
And that'll be it
Just then the stripper stopped in a coughing fit
She said sorry i can't go on with this

yeah that's awful close
but that's not why
i'm so hard done by

It was true cinema à clef
You should see it before there's nothing left
In an epic too small to be tragic
You'll have to wait a minute
Cause it's an instamatic

yeah that's awful close
but that's not why
i'm so hard done by

Just then the room became more dimly lit
As the emcee carried on with it
And now that i got you all strangely compelled
I'm afraid that Candy's not feeling well

close, but that's not why
i'm so hard done by

    First, he is trying to guess why the stripper strips, which she finds funny and has a coughing fit so hard she has to stop the dance. Next, she guesses why dude is in the strip club (a epic too small to be tragi to me means a short-lived, meaningless marriage). In the end, the dance is complete.
