lyrics

Have you heard the story of Narcissus?
Have you heard the story of Narcissus?
He died alone, never having loved anyone but his own reflection

His mother visited a prophet
She asked him how her son was like to go
He told her not to worry unless
He ever came to know himself

The son was coveted around the place
A golden boy, a beauty queen's wet dream
He rather liked the attention he got
If only to hear them scream his name

He died alone, never having loved anyone but his own reflection

The first time that I saw him
I couldn't look away
I wasted my youth holding out
For a pretty boy not that way inclined

The last time that I saw him
He was naked by the pool
He didn't dare disturb the water
For fear his lover would take him for a fool, a fool, a fool
