"Paper Dolls" as written by and J. Black....
lately i've been spending a lot of time
thinkin about my mistakes
and if i could rewind
some of the choices that i've made
oh, cause i've done a few things
that i am not proud of
i wish i could say that i'm sorry
but i couldn't scream it loud enough

just like paper dolls
fully capable to burn
and underneath it all
hand in hand to wait your turn
then you'll feel the flame
when it melts away your wings
just like paper dolls

now there some people
that i used to call my friends
but now they have chosen to make it their business
turn others against me and try to convince them
to envision they're in any position to judge
it's ridiculous to see that you hate me so much
and write me off so easy like i never knew you
it's ok fake bitches, cause i can write too

just like paper dolls
fully capable to burn
and underneath it all
hand in hand to wait your turn
then you'll feel the flame
when it melts away your wings
just like paper dolls
we are cut the same

im paper, so are you
im happy, saw the real you
i've moved on, why can't you?
they'll burn you too

just like paper dolls
fully capable to burn
and underneath it all
hand in hand to wait your turn
then you'll feel the flame
when it melts away your wings
just like paper dolls
we are cut the same

    General CommentI love this song, it's my favorite of theirs. Surprisingly, it wasn't one of the bigger hits off 'Cheers', though. I think Ballyhoo sounds a lot like a combination between Pepper and Incubus.
