Imitation Of Life
 
Mother always told, "go put on some clothes.
you look like miss desperate."
Mother was a dolt. How could she not know?
Life is desperate.

You've seen nature's screenplay, "born to be the buffet."
Hungers the great desperate.
This happens everyday:routine the replace.
Life's wild and desperate.

It's all made up. You are made up.
Can't break our bond inside this song.
Now, disappear, disappear.
There's no proof you were ever here.

Excuse my exuberance, excessive to you.
'd like to forget life's desperate.
You pretend you don't care 'til you don't care.
Oh, how desperate.

When I love, my love's so potent.
He will be the one that's pregnant.
I'll live so hard I'll die oozing every disease.
I'll be shrill, lie-cheat-kill,voice so loud,
Hip pushed out. Gonna die, please save my
Goddamn life is desperate.

It's all made up. You are made up.
You're my best friend 'til this song ends.
Then disappear. You disappear.
There's no proof you were ever here.

It's all made up. We are made up.
It's up to you. Quick! Make a move.
Then, disappear. I'll disappear.
There's no proof I was ever here.

I don't have to remain "sarah jane".
I can choose my own name, no "sarah jane".
I can choose my own name.
