Is this the ultimate narcissistic song?

Easy come, easy go, that’s just how you live, oh
Take, take, take it all, but you never give
Should have known you was trouble from the first kiss
Had your eyes wide open
Why were they open? (Ooh)


Gave you all I had and you tossed it in the trash
You tossed it in the trash, you did

To give me all your love is all I ever ask
‘Cause what you don’t understand is
I’d catch a grenade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
Throw my hand on a blade for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
I’d jump in front of a train for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)
You know I’d do anything for ya (yeah, yeah, yeah)

Oh, oh, I would go through all this pain
Take a bullet straight through my brain

Yes, I would die for ya, baby
But you won’t do the same

No, no, no, no

Black, black, black and blue
Beat me ’til I’m numb…


(By which I mean: is this a narcissist moaning that his victim isn’t more grateful for his abuse and flinging nonsensical criticisms in her direction? Turns my stomach, this song.)
