She cries herself to sleep every night -- scared that a man will never hold her tight -- she's worried he'll run when he sees her up close -- she thinks airbrushed perfection is what men want most -- she subscribes to all the magazines and studies the TV to be like those beauty queens -- her friends tell her she's a beautiful girl -- but all she ever see is the mirror of the world -- be what the pictures tell you to be - see what the screen wants you to see -- don't ever let yourself be free -- don't ever let yourself be free -- reflecting on reflections -- too subject to suggestion -- reflecting on reflections -- it's the simple fear of rejection -- his walls are papered with magazine covers -- he dreams of these girls and no others -- nobody else will be good enough for him -- he needs a woman that is tall, beautiful and slim -- his heroes' videos got ladies like that so he figures it's a symbol of status and he wants to roll like these cats -- don't care about normal girls cause they're inferior -- all he cares about is that plastic exterior -- put down all the magazines -- forget what you see on the screen -- you don't have to play that roll -- the price of perfection isn't worth it's toll
