"Anorexic Beauty" as written by and Russell Senior Candida Doyle....
Sitting alone on a cold bar stool,
Your cold, hard eyes make me feel a fool.
Pastel-white features,
High cheek-bones,
Scarlet-blooded lips and deathly tones.

The girl of my nightmares,
Sultry and corpse-like.
The girl
Of my
Nightmares.

Brittle fingers,
And thin cigarettes,
So hard to tell apart,
She hasn't spoken yet.
You put your hand on mine,
Death white on brown,
Those whirlpool eyes;
Well, I begin to drown.

The girl of my nightmares,
Erotic and skull-faced.
The girl
Of my
Nightmares.

Anorexic beauty,
Feather-weight perfection,
Anorexic beauty,
Underweight
Goddess.

Sitting alone on
A cold bar stool, your
So hard to tell apart,
She hasn't spoken yet.
Pastel-white features,
High cheek-bones,
Scarlet-blooded lips and deathly tones.

The girl of my nightmares,
Sultry and corpse-like.
The girl
Of my
Nightmares.

Anorexic beauty,
Feather-weight perfection,
Anorexic beauty,
Underweight
Goddess.

    General Commentemilystarnes...you know you don't want to be the girl in that song...she's a nightmare. Who would want to be the girl that the pulp sings a dark (really cool) song about...she's the object for a song...no one's true affection

    General CommentI think this song kind of mocks anorexia... how girls think that it's good to be thin, and how they starve themselves to be gorgeous, but really, how she's a nightmare because she's so thin and brittle.

    General CommentI also think the song relates to how being so self-involved and insecure can make someone hideous.
