Self hatred grows in me like cancer
I can’t locate its whereabouts but it's feasting on its host
I expected him to have the answers
I thought I taught him how to love me, now he fears me like a ghost

Self-fulfilling prophecy
You’re the only guaranteed loyalty in this town
Full of violent mothers, cheating fathers, leaving lovers
I swear to you, I’ll never love again

This hunger grows inside me like a tumour
The dizziness just compliments this failure of a girl
I’m settled now, the shell of mine consumes me
But every pound I shed speaks volumes of my lack of self control

Self-fulfilling prophecy
You’re the only one that dare speak truth about me in this town
With well intentioned mothers, starving daughters, worried lovers
I swear to you, I’ll never eat again

Self-fulfilling prophecy
You never fail to comfort me in this town
Filled with violent mothers, cheating fathers, leaving lovers
Angry brothers, starving daughters, starving daughters, worried lovers
I swear to you, I’ll never trust again

    General CommentThe song in general is about having a very negative view on the world and because of that many negative things happen to you. It's like people who always think everyone is leaving them always attracting people who then really do leave.

    The "starving" parts obviously are about her anorexia.

    General Commentit`s about how you feel when you have anorexia and it is also about how her anorexia belongs to her parents divorce.
