Molly's Song

Verse 1
Molly's such a pretty little thing
With her shining blue eyes
And the ballerina's body
She's just the perfect size

Molly's such a pretty little thing
And doesn't she just love being told so?
You applaud her will power for ordering salad only
But it really doesn't matter, coz it'll be thrown up again soon
Don't you know?

Onto your knees again
Sink to your knees again

Chorus 1
Oh, Molly, what a beautiful little girl
Caught up in such a big scary world
And they'll say "slim" to her face
And "skinny" behind her back
Because they don't mind joining in her act
The one where she tells herself that she's fat
And stands before the mirror, observing
The hollow shell she's in
She just wants to be thin

Verse 2
Molly's such a pretty tiny thing
With her glassy gray eyes
Seems she's cried all the pigment away
'Cause it hurts so bad to keep track of all the lies

Molly's such as pretty tiny thing
But don't you dare tell her so
Because she's convinced herself you're wrong
It's all wrong, and the mirror never lies
Didn't realise it was possible to sink this low

Onto your knees again
Sink to your knees again

Chorus 2
Oh, Molly, what a beautiful little girl
Caught up in such a big scary world
And they'll say "skinny" to her face
And "emaciated" behind her back
Because they don't mind joining in her act
The one where she tells herself that she's fat
And stands before the mirror, observing
The hollow shell she's in
The hollow shell that's way too big

Bridge
Onto your knees again
Sink to your knees again

She just keeps on falling
But it's not her fault the urge is so strong
And the scales keep on calling

Onto your knees again
Sink to your knees again

Chorus 3
Oh, Molly, what a beautiful little girl
Caught up in such a big scary world
And they'll say "emaciated" to her face
And "skeletal" behind her back
Because they don't mind joining in her act
The one where she tells herself that she's fat
And stands before the mirror, observing
The hollow shell she's in
The hollow shell that's way too big

Chorus 4
Oh, Molly was such a beautiful little girl
Caught up in such a big scary world
And they said "skeletal" to her face
And "bulimic" behind her back
Because they didn't want to join in her act
The one where she told herself that she was fat
And stood before the mirror, observing
The hollow shell she was trapped in
The evidence of all of her sins
She just wanted to be thin
