"Self-Fulfilling Prophecy" as written by and Arvid Solvang Maria Mena....
Self hatred grows in me like cancer
I can?t locate its whereabouts but its feeding on its host
I expected him to have the answers
I thought I taught him how to love me
Now he fears me like a ghost

Self-fulfilling prophecy
You?re the only guaranteed loyalty
In this town
Full of violent mothers
Cheating fathers
Leaving lovers
I swear to you, I?ll never love again

This hunger grows inside me like a tumor
The dizziness just compliments
This failure of a girl
I?m settled now
The show of mine consumes me
But every pound I shed
Speaks volumes of my lack of self control

Self fulfilling prophecy
You?re the only one that dare speak truth about me
In this town of
Well intentioned mothers
Starving daughters
Worried lovers
I swear to you, I?ll never eat again

Self-fulfilling prophecy
You never fail to comfort me
In this town filled with
Violent mothers
Cheating fathers
Leaving lovers
Angry brothers
Starving daughters
Starving daughters
Worried lovers
I swear to you, I?ll never trust again.

    General CommentThe song in general is about having a very negative view on the world and because of that many negative things happen to you. It's like people who always think everyone is leaving them always attracting people who then really do leave.

    The "starving" parts obviously are about her anorexia.

    General Commentit`s about how you feel when you have anorexia and it is also about how her anorexia belongs to her parents divorce.
