where did it begin?

god she's gotten so thin

she grows pale

beware of this tragic tale

she fears rejection

yet its there everytime she looks to her reflection

she cries when she thinks of her fate

but she cant escape these empty plates

they mock her

they know she's unsure

not with these voices

not when they are her only choices


god shes so sick

now you all see through her tricks

im afraid its to late

she cant escape her empty plate

its not even about the weight

there she lays

she was betrayed

by that mind

and now she's to lost to find

i watch her fade

she loses yet another shade

i miss her smile

its been gone for a while

but that girl you hate in the mirror

that girl filled with fear

darling that girl you see

sweetheart i fear that girl is me

and i fear soon ill be free

if you know what i mean
