Second Best

Second Best

Barenaked Ladies

Everything's a lie
We're all gonna die
Before we say goodbye
Let's attack

I admit it's bleak
But I give it a week
Until our friends the meek
Give it back

Is it true?
Well it's true enough I guess
Join the chorus of the second best
Second best
Second best

What's left of you that's real?
A mutated ideal
With limited appeal, I suggest
If winning is an art
Then it's drawn us apart
When you erased your heart and beat your chest

Is it you?
Well it's you enough I guess
You're an angel in a see-through dress
Is it true?
Yes it's true enough I guess
Sometimes it's better to be second best
Second best
Second best

Perhaps it's just as well
That I still look like hell
At least the world can tell us apart

Is it true?
Yes it's true enough I guess
Come join the chorus of the unimpressed
Is it true?
Yes it's true enough I guess
Sometimes it's better to be second best
Second best
Second best
