Leslie hates
When her parents say she is pretty
They are narcissists
It is all thanks to Maybelline
But I comfort her
Tell her I have it worse
I'm going crazy
I having coughing fits
Think I don't exist
They say I'm lazy
'Cause the screaming and the yelling's just as easy now I'm older
And I hate to push away but it's hard not to now I know more
And the audience is waiting but I'd rather fade to black
'Cause these fluorescent lights just make me sick
So I'm sorry for the person that I was
'Cause I hate it when you sigh and just give up on me
So I won't apologize for what I lost
'Cause I'm thinking now that I am better off
Leslie says
She will run away
To Chicago

She will ride a train
Take on an ethnic name
Live in the ghetto
But I calm her down
Ask her to stick around
She has to save me
'Cause I never sleep
Have weird dreams when I sleep
I need some therapy
'Cause my dreams are more disturbing when I'm in bed before morning
And I would write them down except for then I can't ignore them
And I'm sorry if you missed me but I had to go away
My room is a much safer place these days
So I'm sorry if I'm hard to recognize
So I'll cover up the shadows round my eyes
But I know you'd love me even if I changed
So just promise that you'll miss me
Leslie's gone away
Leslie says
She is happy now
On most days
