I Look At her In That Paper Dress.
I Wonder Why She Won't Burn.
She's Just A Paper Doll, Thats All, Just A Paper Doll.
I Dress Her Up She Knocks Me down (2x)
They Try Her On For Size, she Fits Nice.
One Size Fits All (2x)
Now Her Soul Is Dead, Now Her Bodies Raw, You Can Numb Her Pain
Watch The Blood Run Down Her Face.
But Dont Take Notice.
Watch The Blood Run Down Her Arms.
Please Don't Take Notice.
I Know You Have Her Soul.
(and) I See It In Your Eyes.
She Knows You Have Her Soul.
(and) She Sees It In Your Eyes.
Now Her Soul Is Dead, Now Her Bodies Raw, WASH AWAY HER PAIN
She Wants You To Eat Her Pain.
She Wants You To Eat Her Remains (2x)

    General Comment:This song is about a girl who just lets everybody use her. And that she molds herself into whatever guys want her to be "one size fits all". And how she's being worn out and that everybody can see it "watch the blood run down her face, but don't take notice" and how "she wants you to eat her pain and remains" saying she wants to use her to get rid of her pain until she's nothing.

    General Comment:This song sounds like it's about suicide to me. "I wonder why she won't burn" could mean she's trying to hurt herself, but can't. She's just a paper doll...sounds like she's no one and no one notices her.

    General Comment:paperdoll was written by tanya about a friend of hers, i'm not 100% certain it was all truthful. perhaps parts of it were somewhat of a joke, between them i mean.

    General Comment:i think this song is about self hatred, and slef harm and wanting ppl to ignore wat is happening, but at the same time wanting help
    "watch the blood run down her arms plz dont take notice!"

    General Comment:I think this one's about what some people are like today. Lioke someone else said, some of the girls let everybody use them. This song seems sad, but almsot unforgiving. The person who wrote it obviously wants the girl to stop whatever it is she's doing, or she wants to understand how she can through that without getting hurt, or seeming to get hurt. 'I wonder why she won't burn'

    General Comment:This song is beautiful, the calm after the storm of Choke. It's about women being treated like objects. I wish I'd heard Tanya's version.
