"Bodies" as written by and Katy Steele....
Oh follow me here
Oh follow me there
It's my kinda place
It's my kinda place

I've given up on everyone it seems
(ooooh)
Do I take hold and take our memories
(ooooh)

Bodies on the outside baby
Bodies on the inside baby

Is it something I said
Is it something I said
There's a lock in my heart
There's a line down my eye

I see the bodies lined up and I sleep
(ooooh)
I have survivors true have I
(woah)

I'm sick of feeling this way
My body's ok
You only give what you can
To my emotions

Bodies on the outside baby
Bodies on the inside baby
Bodies on the outside baby
Bodies on the inside baby

Calling out
Calling out for you
Calling out
I'm calling out for you

Bodies on the outside baby
Bodies on the inside baby
Bodies on the outside baby
Bodies on the inside baby

(woah)
I'm sick of feeling this way
My body's ok
You only give what you can
To my emotions

I'm sick of feeling this way
My body's ok
You only give what you can
To my emotions

I'm sick of feeling this way
My body's ok
(i'm free to love, I'm free to love on the inside)
You only give what you can
To my emotions
(i'm free to love, I'm free to love on the outside)

I'm sick of feeling this way
My body's ok
(i'm free to love, I'm free to love on the inside)
You only give what you can
To my emotions
(i'm free to love, I'm free to love on the outside)

    General Commentkaty is a serial killer

    isnt it obvious!
    "i see the bodies lined up endlessly"
    she hacks them to death with her trademark red stilletto's
    and i think littlebirdy is right with "feel love on the inside"

    this song is my ringtone... and i cant tell the difference between the ringtone and tha real song, its all those synths!

    General CommentI love this song, it's very catchy but the lyrics are dark and you don't expect that.

    I think it's about an eating disorder. Ï'm sick of feeling this way, my body's okay". Then in 'Don't'you've got lines line "don't try to feed me, you and you and you"ending on "fade me in the background". Katy is looking less gaunt than she did a few years back which is fantastic - she looks gorgeous now days

    General Commenti agree with pinky bee - when i first heard this song, i was like 'ooh, its catchy~' and then i really looked into the lyrics, and what i deciphered myself that it was about anorexia/eating disorders.

    I know a few people who suffer from eating disorders - one of them died from it, too. I know that the general psychology behind them is that they are convinced they need to perfect their body, when in truth they are 'unperfecting' it. Er, does that make sense?

    The way she repeats certain parts a few times over, suggests to me the nagginess people with eating disorders (though not just them, obviously) can have. They lock people out, but at the same time are dependant on others' thoughts.

    "There's a lock in my heart
    There's a line down my eye"

    Her heart is locked on this particular goal, and the second verse refers to the contradicting ideals people with the said disorder have.

    In truth, i'm too lazy to explain it. But thats just my thoughts.

    General CommentIm pretty sure its not about a eating disorder. Perhaps pleasing a crowd? Perhaps being a performer even though you're feeling crappy? Its a cool song either way :D
