Come, come skinny
Come, come
Come bring a trend
And come nearly naked
Come hungry
Come shaking
Come faking
The perfect friend
Now that’s a face
A face meant for breeding
Keep wasting
No feeling
Cause the next one
Always be watching

So shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
I’m going out of style
So shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
I’m going out of style

Come, come,
Come fit in
Now I fit in
Yeah, I fit in the right size
Standard like white guys
And French fries
I’m back designs
I’m back from black
My nose bleeds like a hangnail
I’m desperate like a bake sale
That’s going stale

So shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
I’m going out of style
So shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
While I’m still in style

What can you compromise besides everything?
We’re bleeding forward
Remembering
So skinny
So pretty
So hard to be
Just shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot, shoot me

So shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
Oh shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
Oh shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
I’m going out of style
I’m going out of style

Come, come skinny
Come, come
Come skinny

So shoot me, shoot me
Shoot me in the smile
I’m going out of style

Come, come skinny
Come, come
Come skinny

Work with me baby
Skinny smile

Come, come skinny
Come, come
Come skinny

    General CommentThere's a mistake in the lyrics, after "going out like a bake sale" he says "I'm going stale"...yeah.

    LOVE this song.

    General Commentthis one's really catchy. my take is how going into "the business" if it's music or movies, eveyone expects something from u to be skinny and up w/ the trends, beautiful and half anorexic. the matches are just picking on the "standard" which is sweet.

    General Commentdon't know why, but everytime i hear this song i think of paris hilton. i agree with nubus, it's deffinetly about trends and the media "raping" us daily by forcing us with images of what's accepted and beautiful.
