intro: Bm C#m  [2x]

[Verse 1]

Bm
Where a little girl once stood
         C#m
Now sits an empty base

Cold and shiny

Hard and tiny
F#     Em     D     F#
Difficult to wash away
       G
oh, monsters get creative every day.

Bm
And nothing can prepare you for the day they run away
      C#m
Your fine tutelage is no longer needed

So you’ve sealed your fate
      Bm
One minute, she's your best friend

Then you watch her take your place
   C#m
I guess that taught them all the same
                   F#     A
You clever little charlatans
   D                G
Ambition gleams in overdrive
    A
And I can't take it

[Chorus]

B
What goes up must come on down

Get your feet back on the ground
  G
Narcissus in a red dress

You're like all the rest, Miss
B
Blinded by your own reflection

Let the lights direct you now
    G
Narcissus in a red dress
                             Bm
You're like all the rest, I know.
   C#m
I know.

[Verse 2]

Behave and like the Virgin Queen
You're just as damaged underneath
You know, No matter how good your impersonation of me ever grows,
Deep down you know your insides never change
But people love it, vapid and shamesless, simply lacking taste
They fall for the spell of Lady Macbeth
Her calculated grace
But I can see the hunger of compulsion in your face

High school skinny fades away
And you're just left with Polaroids
capturing your fifteen minutes
Ain't it great?

[Chorus repeated]

Bm
Vanity on parade
                       C#
Vacant, frantic, and strange

Fraught with heartache and desperation
Bm
Guess I loved you in vain,
                         C#
Consider this song your wake

Lost your head to the elevation

F#        Em                D              F#
All the king's horses and all the king's men
G                   A
Couldn't bring you back again

[Chorus repeated]
