Million Dollar Man is Track 10 on the Born to Die album. The song was written by Grant and Chris Braide. One demo version has surfaced online. Live performances can also be heard. ...
You said I was the most exotic flower
Holding me tight in our final hour

I don't know how you convince them and get them, but
I don't know what you do, it's unbelievable
And I don't know how you get over, get over
Someone as dangerous, tainted and flawed as you

One for the money, and two for the show
I love you honey, I'm ready, I'm ready to go
How did you get that way, I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant
And look like a million dollar man
So why is my heart broke?

You got the world but baby at what price
Something so strange, hard to define

It isn't that hard boy to like you or love you
I'd follow you down down down You're unbelievable
If you're going crazy just grab me and take me
I'd follow you down down down, anywhere anywhere

One for the money, two for the show
I love you honey, I'm ready, I'm ready to go
How did you get that way, I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant
And look like a million dollar man
So why is my heart broke?

One for the money, two for the show
I love you honey, I'm ready, I'm ready to go
How did you get that way, I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant
And look like a million dollar man
So why is my heart broke

I don't know
You're screwed up and brilliant
And look like a million dollar man
So why is my heart broke?

    Song MeaningThis song is about her bad boy. It's a song of admiration for his life, career, art, and skill. He has a power over people, her specifically, that she can't understand. She knows he's bad and wrong, yet she's absolutely captivated. I thinks he definitely knows she needs to escape, but again can't. Then, she uses one of the most clever puns she has ever used: "You look like a million dollar man, so why is my heart broke?" At first I was like, "Ugh, Lana, your grammar is awful!" but then I realized it is intentional. Meaning, all the money in the world can't buy happiness; she still feels empty and meaningless. I love that! The same idea is in the second verse: "You got the whole world, but, baby, at what price?" She will follow him anywhere, regardless of what it costs her.
