lyrics

take a photograph
take no artistic license
just the white lights
the surgical steel
the forensic evidence

take a long, hard look
take it all in slowly
do you know me?
do you know me?

the camera's trained to lie
what beauty lies in this beholder's eye
princess, plastic and pathetic
photosynthetic

take an acid bath
your fingertips immersed
watch the image return to life
reborn and rehearsed

missing all that's perfect
and unseen
a portrait of the artist
the monster and his dream

the camera's trained to lie
what beauty lies in this beholder's eye
princess, plastic and pathetic
photosynthetic

you said, "my life is envied,
also empty, and absolutely
nothing in between."

what has he done to make you happy?
what has he done lately for you baby?
what has he done to make you happy?
replace him easily with me
