I would love to tell you it's easy
to get up in the morning, but I'm
not gonna lie to you anymore.

I would love to tell you all about my
huge successes, my over-fed bank
account, and all the pretty things
I see in the mirror every goddamn
day, but I'm not gonna lie to you
anymore.

I would love to have you
feel powerful gnawing lust for me,
to have you laugh at all my jokes,
to see you grovel at my feet, but
I'm not gonna lie to you anymore.

I would love to be whatever it is
you see in me, but I'm not gonna
lie to you anymore.
