Terrific

Strange how things can change
How your consciousness can fade
Reason can’t compete
With the drug that shares your name

And there you are on cue where the light falls
Waving at strangers wearing your name out

You are not yourself here
You are someone else dear
Aren’t you terrific
Aren’t you terrific now

All the world applaud
To the popular tricks you choose
Who are they to stop
When your hands are clapping too

And you believe that it’s an achievement
Scratching them where they have no feeling

You are not yourself here
You are someone else dear
Aren’t you terrific
Aren’t you terrific now

It was you who spoke out when no-one heard oh yeah
You’re not as pure as you were vanity hangs you by threads
And right now I wish some things were undone
It is natural as it is fun
This is not the time to give up yourself to anyone

You are not yourself here
You are someone else dear
Aren’t you terrific
Aren’t you terrific

If you saw yourself here
You would be amazed dear
Aren’t you terrific
Finally terrific now
