lyrics

She tells you of her foremost complaint
Just sit and listen, you're her brand-new saint
How she can't have me and why you are a friend
The nightmare shadow in her head just won't mend
A foil you cannot duplicate, a man
A man you will never be
You stand before her but all she sees is me.

You're real and so you're boring
You're real and so you're fat
You're real and so you feel things
You're real and who wants that?
You're real and so you love her
You're real that's where I sat
You're real and so you feel things
You're real and who wants that?

I am all she wanted, I am all she saw:
Mephisto and Godzilla all naked on the floor

I'm in the past, but I am all important
I sipped her brandy blood and make you impotent
I had a way of tossing back my hair
You do it too, but she will never care
I'd tell her to forget me
But I am not around
I am legend now
And you are on the ground.

You're gone because you wanted
You're gone 'cause you held back
You're gone because you told her
You're gone in favor of a ghost, yeah
You're gone and I and sorry
You're gone it's tit for tat
You're gone 'cause I was too cool
I apologize for that

I am all she wanted, I am all she saw:
Mephisto and Godzilla all naked on the floor
