not so pretty now lyrics – nine inch nails

you like to open it up real wide
then you let everyone come inside
there’s always something you’ve got to hide
so you lied and you lied and you lied
make sure you grab everything that you need
you got a hole that you’ve got to feed
keep trying to fill it all up with your greed
but it bleeds and it bleeds and it bleeds

well go take a little more
we’ll scr*pe you off the floor
we love you anyhow
but you’re not so pretty now
a great big superstar
is what you think you are
we love you anyhow
but you’re not so pretty now

n*body burns quite as bright
well godd*mn, maybe you’re right
there’s always battles left for you to fight
and you might, you might, you just might
but there is something i’ve got to say
there is a price you’re gonna pay
try as hard as you can to stay
you’re just fading and fading and fading the f*ck away

well go take a little more
we’ll scr*pe you off the floor
we love you anyhow
but you’re not so pretty now
a great big superstar
is what you think you are
we love you anyhow
but you’re not so pretty now

well go take a little more
we’ll scr*pe you off the floor
we love you anyhow
but you’re not so pretty now
a great big superstar
is what you think you are
we love you anyhow
but you’re not so pretty now
better turn the lights down low
the cracks begin to show
we all love you anyhow
but you’re not so pretty now
well soon you will be gone
and we will all move on
you never mattered anyhow
and you’re not so pretty now
