Lyrics

    You like to open it up real wide
    Then 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 got a hole that you've got to feed
    Keep trying to fill it all up with your greed
    But it bleeds and it bleeds and it bleeds
    
    Well 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
    
    Nobody burns quite as bright
    Well goddamn, maybe you're right
    There's always battles left for you to fight
    And you might, you might, you just might
    But there is something I've got to say
    There is a price you're gonna pay
    Try as hard as you can to stay
    You're just fading and fading and fading the fuck away
    
    Well 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
    
    Well 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 all love you anyhow
    But you're not so pretty now
    Well soon you will be gone
    And we will all move on
    You never mattered anyhow
    And you're not so pretty now
