lyrics

My body’s a place
I’ve kept captive my whole life
Except for a few moments
Except for a few nights
And maybe sometimes
In my anorexic prime
I was driven by the freedom
In controlling my body my life

My body’s a place
No one lives in here but me
From time to time invaders
It’s never safe or empty
And mostly I desert it
As I have much bigger plans
Hope was here first

Before despair even began

I’ve never felt this empty before
Like somebody drained by body
With three thousand open sores
All that was left was my heart and my soul
But it wasn’t enough to make me feel whole

My body’s a place
Those who touch it are tourists
With greedy eyes they gaze my size
For an unwelcome visit
Burn my body when I leave it
It was never really mine
A tale of two cities

The best and the worst of times

I’ve never felt this empty before
Like somebody drained by body
With three thousand open sores
And all that was left was my heart and my soul
But it wasn’t enough to make me feel whole
