"Pretty little dum dum" as written by Anastacia L. Newkirk, Glen Ballard and Kara Dioguardi....
Floating in a circle of illusion and deceit
Drifting far beneath the skin
The taste of bittersweet
Giving in to fantasies
Playing every card
It's so hard to brake away
From what he says you are

He calls you pretty little dumb dumb
He says he loves you but he lies
Oh no
He says that you're the one one
But that's eleven in his eyes

Whatever happens from one through ten
Don't be a victim of his past tense
Pretty little one one
Don't, don't, don't be a pretty little dumb dumb

Never ending silence
In an ever ending sleep
Walking through the darkness
Complicated melody
Praying for a change of heart
And looking for a sign
It's so hard to find the love you want
In broken times

He calls you pretty little dumb dumb
He says he loves you but he lies
He says that you're the one one
But that's eleven in his eyes

Whatever happens from one through tens
Don't be a victim of his past tense
Pretty little one one
Don't be a pretty little dumb dumb

Oh, it's so hard to be what you want to be
(And you wanted to be the one
But you know that you have to run)
Oh oh
Your life's incomplete
It's so bittersweet
(And you wanted to be the one
But you know that you have to run)
Oh it's so hard to be what you want to be
Baby, oh

He calls you pretty little dumb dumb
He says he loves yeah
He says that you're the one one
But that's eleven in his eyes
Oh yeah

Whatever happens from one through ten
Don't be a victim of his past tense
Oh, pretty girl
Don't be a pretty little dumb dumb
Oh, pretty dumb dumb

    General CommentI think this song's just about a girl goin out with a guy but he's playing her, but she can't see it.

    Sounds pretty cool.

    General CommentIt actually is about how magazines want you to be...at least that's what she said in the making of the album.
