You're So Real


You worship at the altar of destruction,
you pray for pain
And every time you get it
you’re so surprised again
You don’t know what it’s like
to be satisfied
You can’t turn out the light
you can’t be denied

Chorus

You’re so real, you’re so real
You’d make Napoleon kneel
You’re so real

Everyone else has gone home,
you just hang around
The hints they drop like atom bombs,
you, you don’t hear a sound
You push it to the edge
just to watch it fall
Night of the living dead,
you’re no fun at all

Chorus

You’re so real, you’re so real
You’d make a dead man feel
You’re so real

I’ve waited for the moment to be magic,
now I’m comin’ up for air
I did the deal, I gave it up
and you, you can’t even share
So tell me one more time
and make it sound sincere
Give me your best line
and one little tear

Chorus

You’re so real, you’re so real
You’d make Napoleon kneel
You’re so real
