Imperfection she's been told
The positives are undersold
A gain of envy, loss of health
Preparing to consume herself

She does not see the pulsing veins
She does not feel her own restraint
Before the eyes her beauty is wasting away
Reflections placed
She's dressed in decay

You see the struggle flood the skin
From promises to paper thin
She turns a blind eye, will of stone
From stunning smile to flesh and bone

She does not see the pulsing veins
She does not feel her own restraint
Before the eyes her beauty is wasting away
Reflections placed
She's dressed in decay

She does not see the pulsing veins
She does not feel her own restraint
Before the eyes her beauty is wasting away
Reflections placed
She's dressed in decay

    General CommentI think HCCougars is right about this song. At first I thaught it was just about a girl who is really depressed but now its easy to see that its about an eating disorder.

    "Imperfections shes been told, the posotives are undersold" - Someone has told her there is something wrong with her body, like she needs to lose weight.
    "A gain of envy, loss of health" - She wants to be skinnier, like someone else so, she develops an eating disorder.
