For those of you who don't have the album here are the lyrics

Smashed Princess (written in 1992)

Flying high and drinking
To the goddess on the screen
You're such a damaged baby
You're the paparzi's dream
A front-page perfect princess
You hit the high life scene
When you apply your lipstick and mascara to a scream

Blame it on your heritage
You've done it times before
But a prejudice won't extinguish
The flames around your door
Someone lies beside you
Now you see that it is you
And you pray the these good ambulance men Know how to use the glue
And the stars
Are calling you home

And how you got to be broken
You just don't have a clue
One minute you were riding high
And then the world just flew
And all in slow slow motion
Then a sudden crash
When you lost it on a detour
The scene of your last smash

And the stars
Are calling you home
And the stars
Are calling you home
The stars are calling you
The stars

Infinitely Freaky
Have any other David J prophecies come true?
