You need protection
From the physical art of conversation
Though the fist is mightier than the lip
It adds the aggravation

I got the password, I got persuasion
A proposition for invasion of your privacy
Give yourself away and find the fake in me

You'll never be a man
No matter how many
Foreign bodies you can take
You'll never be a man

When you're half a woman and you're half awake
With a face full of tears and a chemical shake
Given half a chance, that I can take

Are you so superior, are you in such pain
Are you made out of porcelain?
When they made you they broke the cast
Don't wanna be first, I just wanna last, oh, oh

You strike a profile
On the low side of my imagination
My eyes climbed down
To find the point of possible saturation

I got the password, I got persuasion
A proposition for invasion of your privacy
Give yourself away and find the fake in me

You'll never be a man
No matter how many
Foreign bodies you can take
You'll never be a man

When you're half a woman and you're half awake
Under the table and a chemical shake
Given half a chance, that I can take

Are you so superior, are you in such pain
Are you made out of porcelain?
When they made you they broke the cast
Don't wanna be first, I just wanna last

Are you so superior, are you in such pain
Are you made out of porcelain?
When they made you they broke the cast
Don't wanna be first, I just wanna last

Are you so superior, are you in such pain
Are you made out of porcelain?
When they made you they broke the cast
Don't wanna be first, I just wanna last, oh, oh
