she's a song unsung
she's the wild orchid in your ugly swamp
she's a song unsung
and only the white walls of her mind know what that song sounds like.

the pills, the pills
and Dr.'s promises just ain't doing the trick
cause the arm's of nothing she falls asleep in
can still bring the razor to the wrist

the tv screens, the magazines
scream at you like the dogs of hell
advertising and advising you to be
anyone but your-beautiful-self

prince charming never brought you flowers,
just a loveless lifetime all alone
no roses for you, just unknocked doors
and the deafening silence of your phone.

so block your ears, close your eyes,
remember that you're a golden soul fallen from the boring, heartless, hollywood herd of lies that they call:

b e a u t i f u l.

with no shoulder, no hand, no body, no man, no door, no heart to let you:

t h e s u n c a n t a k e t o o l o n g t o e n d t h e e n d l e s s n i g h t

i hear you, i feel you, i bleed with you
when our hearts begin to scream:

t h i s l i f e c a n f e e l t o o l o n g.

but at night you're dancing through the pain
even when you're the only one.
no rose, no sky as full of beauty as the girl who dies
but rises with every morning's sun,
alone.

she dances alone
alone - so beautiful
alone - her own romance:
alone - Lady Lazarus' Life - Sustaining Dance.

    Song Meaningthis song means more than most of you think, its not meant to be sad and cry because your life is like this, this song is about being yourself no matter what society say, and most people never show their true beauty because they are so scared of what society will say about them and sometimes it just takes one good person to change all of that. dont care what everybody else calls beautiful becuase you yourself will always be beautiful

    Stay true and love yourself no matter what
