Once I saw the galaxies in your Jack and Coke eyes,
And the sacrificial temple where your monster always dies.
Once I wrote a gospel out of every word you say,
And now you're on the front page of the USA Today.
Cutting to the front of the line I find my mind
Is no place to raise a family.
And I was looking all over for you, baby.
You were always right in front of me.
And tonight I'm declaring your love to be a waste of time and money.

Once I raised alpacas with your pet Komodo dragon,
While I was eating cardboard in my father's station wagon.
Once I sold everything I owned to buy you a diamond ring,
And now you're over at CNN sitting down with Larry King.
After 5 bottles of wine my friends opine that I should consider therapy,
But they've clearly never been with you, baby,
They don't know about the things that you've told me,
And tonight I am declaring my life is a joke no longer funny.

All publicity is good publicity
When you sell your conscience in this city
Achieving high elasticity
Shock resistant with electricity

    Lyric Correctionfixing the words:

    Once I saw the galaxies in your Jack and Coke eyes
    And the sacrificial temple where your monster always dies
    Once I wrote a gospel out of every word you say
    And now you're on the front page of the USA Today

    Cutting to the front of the line I find my mind
    Is no place to raise a family
    And I was looking all over for you baby
    You were always right in front of me
    And tonight I'm declaring your love
    To be a waste of time and money

    Once you raised alpacas with your pet komodo dragon
    While I was eating cardboard in my father's station wagon
    Once I sold everything I owned to buy you a diamond ring
    And now you're over at CNN sitting down with Larry King

    After five bottles of wine my friends opine
    That I should consider therapy
    But they've clearly never been with you baby
    They don't know about the things that you've done to me
    And tonight I declare that my life
    Is a joke no longer funny

    All publicity is good publicity
    When you sell your conscience in this city
    Thick skins mean high elasticity
    Shock resistant with electricity

    All publicity is good publicity (All comes back to where we started)
    When you sell your conscience in this city (Opposites but never parted)
    Thick skins mean high elasticity (Flowers for the brokenhearted)
    Shock resistant with electricity (Take us back to where we started)

    All publicity is good publicity (Opposites we never parted)
    When you sell your conscience in this city (Take this back to where we started)
