He's got a perfect face
Turn away before you go
and turn me on
I cannot look away
I'm stunned
it's that Je ne sais quoi
uh huh

He talks to me in my sleep
Does he write my songs for me?
Should I try to play just like him?
Kick it out, could you show me your riffs?

You always measure me by him
Don't get me wrong
I'm not opposed to something big

I'm so sick of tests
Go ahead and flunk my ass
YOu don't own the siituation, honey
You don't own the stage
We're here to join the conversation
and we're here to raise the stakes
Now do you hear that sound
as the Model breaks
Take the Stage?

Let the image of hime fade away
Go back and tear the pictures from the page
It's time for a new rock n' roll age
History will have to find a different face
and if you're ready for me
I just might be what you're looking fo

    General Commentabout the comparisons of women vs men in the rock n roll area. the Male Model is every male rock and roll god that's appeared in past history (Elvis, Johnny Cash, John Lennon, Jimi Hendrix, Kurt Cobain).

    She's saying that she could very well be the next model, with the lines:
    "Now do you hear that sound
    as the Model breaks
    Take the Stage?"

    The line "could you show me your riffs?" is a parody of the degrading "show us your tits" catcall often associated with women on stage.
