lyrics

Dysmorphia, MN

This organ sings above her bones,
Dancing its own dance
It dances taught smooth and elegant
The blood beneath it asks, “what’s it like to be so free?”

I want that skin all of it
(Not the way you think)
I want her curves and the shape she’s in.
(And everything between)
She wants the next best thing.
Yeah, she wants a magazine.
A little less of everything.
Like a little tiny waist.

She hides behind the hair that’s draped around her frame.
With fingertips to teeth, she smiles in disdain.
She’s force fed a confidence to calm that fragile, frantic brain.
She looks up and asks the sky, “What’s it like?”

I am just like her, wrapped up in the rigor of sexuality
(I am just like her, dressed up in distraction.
Fucking just to fuck. Fucking just because we can)

And I too hate my skin.
I hate the surface of most everything.
But most of all my skin.

I want that skin all of it
(Not the way you think)
I want her curves and the shape she’s in.
(And everything between)
She wants the next best thing.
Yeah, she wants a magazine.
A little less of everything.
Like a little tiny waist.
