Before a thousand grasping hands
In a glaring light she stands
Trying hard to meet demands
Everybody’s girl
Defenseless more and more each time
Desecration is their crime
Vandalizing every rhyme
Everybody’s pet
Becoming someone else outside
Hoping to protect and hide
What they smile at, then deride
Everybody’s fool
Awaiting still some unknown sign
When she’ll use her chance to shine
How should she her life define?
“No one’s woman yet.”

    General CommentI think it's about a girl who tries to please other's by pretending to be someone she's not. She tries acting normal, but really, she's lonely and doesn't understand much about herself, so she makes herself into what others want of her.
    (I hope that made sense)
