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 when 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 applauds
To the popular tricks you choose
And 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
You're not as pure as you were
Vanity hangs you by threads
And right now I wish some things were undone
It's as natural as it is fun
This is not the time
To give up yourself to anyone

You are not yourself here
You are someone dear
Aren't you terrific?
Aren't you terrific?
If you saw yourself here
You would be amazed dear
Are you terrific?
Finally terrific now
