Lyrics

I’m the center of everything

I’m surprised you’ve not seen it before:


When I suck the air out of every room


And leave you suffocating on the floor


When you meet me
I seem charming
Cause I can pretend to care

But the changes

Are alarming
When you need me to be there.

Cause I’m a narcissist

A narcissist

At least I’m not a sociopath
Em/A7/D/D
Just a narcissist

A narcissist

Why can’t you live with that?

Why can’t you live with that?



I was reared by exceptional parents
Who saw my innate great worth
They said my superior genes would bring me
A heavenly life on Earth.

I’m supposed to be rich and famous
And have all the breaks I can get
I can’t help it if you lesser beings
Waste time being compassionate.

Cause I’m a narcissist

A narcissist

At least I’m not a sociopath

Just a narcissist

A narcissist

Why can’t you live with that?
Why can’t you live with that?

When I run for elected office
You should vote for yours truly
I can charm the socks off voters
Who look for themselves in me.

We drop our friends like hot tamales
And betray them in their darkest hour
Cause folks who’re needy or sad or boring
Don’t have much political power.

Yeah we’re narcissists
We’re narcissists
Also we’re sociopaths.
But we’re narcissists
We’re narcissists
Why can’t you live with that?
(Sounds like it’s your problem)
Why can’t you live with that?
(Toughen up!)
Why can’t you live with that?
(Ya snowflake!)
Why the hell can’t you live with that?
