i know the way inside my heart
but nothing seems to get that far
I’ve spent my life down on my back
It falls asleep, it pops and cracks
And when the sun comes up again
My body dries and shrivels
Then some nice man is over me
So I throw up and giggle

there was a time when i was blank and see-through
but never white as snow
just made of rippled glass
i thought that it was sealed, but now i know
in goes a tiny seed that splits open with rotten spice and sage
and then the numbness is consuming me
just like a sweeping plague

my soul is cheap, lay on top of me

I peel myself up off the floor
Say “I can’t do this anymore”
But then my soul has run away
So I lay down another day

    General CommentIn The "anorexia" "nervosa" CDs. There are stories of the pair of sisters Anorexia and Nervosa. There are also SIDE STORIES of a pair of sisters. One works in a childrens facility, the other in a strip club.

    If you've seen the pig video [nervosa] You may not understand it. The video goes with the side story in nervosa.

    Just buy the CDs and read the stories before you really criticize these works of showbread.
