Lyrics:

Get a load of the princess with the jaded smile,
Always walking the miracle mile to the curse of the purse.
Exhausts all the colours of her chameleon range
'Til she's no way left to change and no new role to rehearse.
Carries loose convictions; they're her passport and coin,
Accessories that speak of where she's been to or is going.

You have seen it all.
Rome could fall.
It wouldn't cast a pall on you.
Yes you have seen it all.
Even the siren's call would fail to enthrall you.

Her only true religion is affected ennui,
Cultivated apathy, so checkered her record.
Says she travels faster cuz she's lost her dead weight.
What that is, though, is up for debate and she's got the last word.
The luxury of discontent and disconnect,
Calendars of empty days are all she collects.

You have seen it all.
Rome could fall.
It wouldn't cast a pall on you.
Yes you have seen it all.
Even the siren's call would fail to enthrall you.

Yes there are miracles residing in the mundane but you'll never change.
You know there's miracles residing in the mundane
If you're open to the pleasure and pain.

Affected disaffection is the mask that you wear
Until you really don't care. It's the numb you become.

You have seen it all.
Rome could fall.
It wouldn't cast a pall on you.
Yes you have seen it all.
Even the siren's call would fail to enthrall you.

You have seen it all.
Rome could fall.
It wouldn't cast a pall on you.
Yes you have seen it all.
Even the siren's call would fail to enthrall you.
