She paints a pretty picture we can all adore
She's covered in razor lines and dynamite
You've shown me how to dissect your beating heart
And just how far these fake smiles can go
So glamorous (shattered like glass)
Fingers shoved to the back of your throat
For a little sex appeal, heaving
Don't forget to call the ambulance when your body hits the floor
So fucking perfect
Your execution will be televised
You threw it all away for a piece of the action
Vanity assassin
With cuts like a diamond and wrapped in plastic
The whole world is crushing on you
The whole world is watching you die
Enjoy living on top of the world
When you die knowing you lived your life on your knees
Die knowing you lived your life on your knees

    General Commentlet me just say that rem nev is my favorite band ever.

    i think this song is about eating disorders.trying so fucking hard to be perfect but in the end it doesnt really matter cuz everyone knows your still nothing.

    "Die knowing you lived your life on your knees"

    nothing materialistic matters in the end. ppl dont remember you for that. they remember you for what you did with your life, and this person was always living rock bottom.
