Damned if I eat and I'm damned if I don't.
Society trys to shove a toothbrush down my throat.
All the bulimics stand around the toilet united.
'Kate Moss gets all the boys excited!'

Daddy Daddy do you love me? I'm thin
now don't you agree?
Daddy daddy won't you hold my hand?
I just wanna be loved by a man.

Why am I starving myself?
Just so I can be someone else.
Ten more pounds and I'll be lean. When I weigh 90 I'll be prom queen.

Daddy Daddy do you love me?
I'm thin now don't you agree?
Daddy daddy won't you hold my hand?
I just wanna be loved by a man.

Look at what you started, it's an anorexic nation.
You can not escape from an anorexic nation.

    General CommentWhoa..... hard-hitting.

    This girl feels ugly in a society of people with eating disorders and thinks that being skinnier will attract love from the opposite sex.

    "Damned if I eat and I'm damned if I don't." = magazines diss celebrities for not eating, then call them greedy pigs when they do, so they make their readers feel the same.

    I wanna hear this band now!
