cry baby cry
one of these nights you wait and see
one of these nights you're gonna realize
the way your pride comes at a cost
leaving you short on sympathy
where is the evidence you need to know
you're better off than the rest

    given attention more than touch
    over the time it's nothing much to show
    keeping it all together
    seems like forever
    one of these days you'll kiss and tell
    it's in the mirror, gonna spill it out
    whatever do you know, what do you, do you know?

a selfish obsession, a fake suicide
you can't see the truth for the dollars in your eyes
they're fading and that makes you
cry baby cry
but it ain't gonna kill you now

can you depend on your champagne
socialist friends to drop your name in their
four viper supernova rides
however great they claim to be
only betrays their insecurity--yeah
see how they fall from those highs

    afraid of dragons in the smoke
    gonna go rehab but that's a joke
    it's getting old don't tell them all we've heard it before
    you're welcome to celebrity
    doing the thing so famously
    must wear your reputation wrong, it must be such a bore

a selfish obsession, a fake suicide
you can't see the truth for the dollars in your eyes
they're fading and that makes you
cry baby cry
but it ain't gonna kill you now

cry baby cry
cry baby cry

a selfish obsession, a fake suicide
you can't see the truth for the dollars in your eyes
they're fading and that makes you
cry baby cry
but it ain't gonna kill you now

it does make you stronger, yeah

cry baby cry
cry baby cry
cry baby cry
cry baby cry
