lyrics

LUC:
Back home, the girls all called me angel
but I am human-born - Best
in class and always faithful
To Number 1 I'm sworn

It's all a routine, being first in every subject since my teens
Family tradition, for this soon-to-be rockstar physician

Oh it's a tragic burden yes
To be so much better than the rest
The spotlight's weighing on my chest
A poet genius alpha mess

I may not be a doctor yet
But every legend has a prequel
Starting school at PMS
Will show the world I have no equal

Back home, defeat was not an option
my mother would have cried
- and taken gin with dextromethorphan
'cause average is a crime

For someone like me, so beyond the curse of merely ordinary
hate or concur it, I had no choice but to be, well, perfect

Oh it's a tragic burden yes
To be defined by my success
My psychoanalyst attests
I've always needed to impress

I may not altogether get
That friendship means I have to share things
Who needs friends, though; don't forget
I'll show the world I'm past comparing

Make no mistake I'm after glory
And the wealth, obligatory
Xenodoc, and future jet-set
Running now to be the class rep

Every year at PMS
The rep is chosen by a test
So watch them learn I'm next to none
When grades come back and I am number --- what?

DIANA:
Oh it's a tragic burden yes
To be so much better than the rest
The spotlight's weighing on my chest
A poet genius alpha mess

I may not be a doctor yet
But every legend has a prequel
Starting school at PMS
Will show the world I have no equal

LUC: Number two?
