Not So Pretty Now Lyrics

by Nine Inch Nails

You like to open it up real wide
Then you let everyone come inside
There's always something you've gotta 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 gotta 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 scrape 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

Nobody burns quite as bright
Well goddamn, 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 gotta 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 fuck away

Well, go take a little more, we'll scrape 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 scrape 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
