Porcelain
Are you wasting away in your skin?
Are you missing the love of your kin?
Drifting and floating and fading away
Porcelain
Do you smell like a girl when you smile?
Can you bear not to share with your child?
Drifting and floating and fading away

Little lune
All day
Little lune

Porcelain
Do you carry the moon in your womb?
Someone said that you're fading too soon
Drifting and floating and fading away
Porcelain
Are you wasting away in your skin?
Are you missing the love of your kin?
Nodding and melting and fading away

Little lune
All day
Little lune

Little lune
All day
Little lune

    General CommentAlthough some think it's about a mother who already has a child, which is what influenced the song. It really is about a girl who is pregnant and struggling with Heroin abuse. "can you bare not to share with your child" ... Share life. "are you wasting away in your skin"..."someone said that you're fading too soon"... the wear of the body from the heroin.
    A beautiful woman who is addicted to herion and struggling to get clean.. someone who used to be so beautiful and now lost her family and herself and now a child who has had a chance at life... like a porcelain babydoll.
    But I do like that comment about maybe the woman already had a child and lost it.. or maybe had an abortion and cant forgive herself so she drift and fades and nods away on herion because she feels like she has nothing... I know someone just like that... my ex. so sad. it was our child and i made her have an abortion and now she may never be able to have kids due to endometriosis.. I cry thining about it and wish i wasnt such a selfish piece of shit... a child is truely a gift no matter what stage or part of life your in.. i hate abortions and if we wouldve had that baby... she wouldn't be using herion right now... a part of myself hates myself...but know that it's not my fault for her using ,but as much as I tell myself that i still feel responsible
