I told you baby, I’m a psychopath
You’ve never seen me smile, never seen me laugh
I speak in tongues, but I still make sense
To the sweet, and the savage, and the dispossessed

So I swore to them
"Yeah I’ll march with you down Pennsylvania Avenue”
It was like when Jesus said “come follow me”
Except that I’d be home watching on TV.

You said that you wanted someone pure, so beautiful, magnificent.
So I said if I build a wall, would you call me ‘Mr President?’

I'm such a whore for recognition
That I’ll incite you to sedition
Just Cos it turns me on
It just turns me on
When you call me ‘Mr President’

I said your future, comrades, it’s a fantasy,
So go on and bomb the past, and do it all for me
Was those Commies who gave you this disease

Because manipulation baby, it’s an art - I got down to a tee
A dollar store Descartes - “I shop therefore I am”
So yeah I’ll look the part, at the riot, candy on your arm

I'm such a whore for your attention
That I'd incite an insurrection.
Cos it turns me on
Yeah it turns me on
When you call me ‘Mr President’
Cos it turns me on
Yeah it turns me on
When you call me ‘Mr President’
You can make me great again
Don't say so say so long, don't say so long
"So long Mr President'

Don't ever stop
We'll never stop
You can can make me great again

That caught my lies back on VHS
Now I'm post factual and I'm overdressed
For my own funeral that I can't accept
Cos I know that you can't love someone to death
