Lyrics

 * An inspirational tirade against me
 * How to explain my life
 * Girls to the left of me
 * Boys to the right of me
 * Neither husband nor wife
 * Though the days are filled with pain
 * There is no one who'll explain why I'm
 * Coming under
 * Friendly fire
 * Shot in the fatal cause of rock and roll
 * But there's no one
 * Really no one
 * To say why I endure under force majeure
 * Slander without shame or tact
 * I, who studied make-up, mime and Buddha
 * Who taught two generations to react
 * About me, the critics lied
 * I ignored them and survived
 * In spite of coming under
 * Friendly fire
 * Shot in the fatal cause of rock and roll
 * But there's nothing 
 * Really nothing
 * To deny
 * When I look back
 * My eyes are filled with tears
 * Danger to mascara
 * Applause to my peers
 * When fame sustained me 
 * And arenas acclaimed me
 * I floated through life on a cloud
 * Of love and insanity 
 * And pagan profanity
 * Before a worshipping crowd
 * Now my status is ill-defined
 * As an icon, I'm inclined
 * To be coming under 
 * Friendly fire
 * Shot in the fatal cause of rock and roll
 * And whatever 
 * Dull or clever
 * Points they've scored
 * I have never
 * Oh no, never
 * Been ignored
