lyrics

broken girl
the one they taunted
into silence
into submission
gave them permission
to paint my reflection

but i defied their definition
couldn’t fit me in their equation
of division and separation
fixation on my imperfection

thought i broke free
but it still haunts me
when I see
their distorted mirror
staring back at me

it’s my reflection
my imperfection
poisoned my perception
of my reflection

silently emaciated
self-hatred never satiated
media, society manipulated
this sacred temple— violated
wasn’t vanity
was my sanity leaving me
with a shell of who i was supposed to be
and she withered into bones that bleed

thought i broke free
but it still haunts me
when I see
their distorted mirror
staring back at me

it’s my reflection
my imperfection
poisoned my perception
of my reflection
