As my freshly painted skin
Falls over my lovely bones
With nothing between the two
I keep craving to be thin
In this shelter I call my own
Far, far away from you

This is my reason to live
A reason just for me
That no one needs to know
There's no more that I can give
Than the beauty that you see
And the fragility that I show

My body could easily fall
And break into little shards
When the wind blows outside
I'm like a porcelain doll
With inside a broken heart
That I will gladly try to hide

I'd rather live my life
Hanging by a thin thread
And die from a hunger for beauty
Than having to use my knife
To cut away all that fat
Out of my broken body

As my freshly painted skin
Falls over my lovely bones
With nothing between the two
I'll be happy from within
And shine like I've never shone
In my world without you
