Lyrics:

V1:
Mirror mirror on the wall
Tunnel vision on the flaws
In the scale of things it’s unimportant
So no talking but it’s still an intrusive thought

Tried hard to correct it
But nothing was effective
No-one else seemed so obsessed with it, things were desperate
Until the voice crept in

I can help you, trust me, you’re ready

It seemed dangerous
But it said to have faith in it

The secret is to just be empty

Didn’t know if it was wise to listen
But what could it hurt to try?

P1:
And at first it was working
But then things were emerging
Cracked lips and Tired eyes
I’m hungry with no appetite

I’m shivering and shaking, and I tell myself it’s fine, but
You can’t fool your body, you can only fool your mind, yuh

Empty
I just need to be empty
Hide from anybody who’ll prevent me
Just fill up on water and shame
No, I’m not hungry, I just ate

I’ve developed a taste for this
Endure the neverending ache
Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
All that voice that makes me sick

C:
Inside it’s empty
Ana- I know it’s wrong
I’m looking but I can’t see myself

Inside it’s empty
Ana- I know it’s wrong
But it’s so hard to stop it alone

V2:
Been getting even worse
All the days begin to merge
Just a blurry haze and now it’s
Almost second nature to ignore the urges

Can’t trust my own nature
Every calorie a failure
Gotta push the intake down every day
‘Cause the voice comes back to say

You want to eat? Bite your tongue

Don’t want to stay an embarrassment
just have to stomach it

They don’t know what you want
A tug of war against common sense
don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped

P2:
But it’s so overwhelming
And I hope no-one can tell
‘Cause the numbers keep decreasing
This ordeal is becoming routine, check

Arms back neck thighs Suck it in and Pinch my sides
The scales are betraying me, the mirror is a lie, yeah

Numbers
It all comes down to numbers
I know it’s wrong but
Just because you know you’re colorblind
doesn’t mean you can see the colors

Fine, I admit I’m addicted
But the hunger feels good, how do I quit this
I know I could die, I’ve seen the statistics
But the voice is with me through thick and thin

Bridge:
I can reach out
To someone not like me
If you ask for help it doesn’t make you weak

I can reach out
ignore what the voice tells me
I can help my mind learn to trust my body

(dave is such a nice genuine guy i appreciate all he’s done to help me. thank you dave!)

      Just watched your channel good videos

    • Kingtony says:

      wat you posted the same commemt twice and you allready have 200 likes btw i love your channel

    • Xenobi says:

      Commenting this twice is blatant self-promotion. Don’t self promote, its a shit move especially due to what kind of video this is :/ I’m pretty sure the creators would prefer the comments to have positive feedback and people talking about the issue the video touches on, not a shit spam comment promoting someones channel.

    I feel very close to this song because I worry about my weight. Everyone I know says I’m beautiful and thin, I’m really not. I’ve overweight but I barely eat. I’m trying to do dance and I’m just getting bigger and I hate myself. My mom always comments how I get tight jeans. I do this because I’m very self conscious about my thighs so I wear tight jeans to tighten my legs and my mom just keeps commenting and the comments seem to be overflowing my mind, so it’s all I think about. I lie awake, breaking because I can’t pick up dance, or ride a bike without training wheels. I’m 13, live in the country and my dad is in a city so I can finally ride a bike. I feel worthless all the time because I’m not close to perfect, I pick at myself finding all the things that I see that’s wrong with me; I’m too big, my face looks weird, my introvertness kills me, because I can never talk to anyone, and when I do they ignore me. I think everyone hates me because they never talk to me. My favorite part of the year is having no school because I don’t have panic attacks every morning and feel like a loner all day. Mother’s Day comes around, I don’t talk to her. She jus breaks me down to pieces, and she’s my mother, I can’t ignore her opinions. If you have read this far, God bless you, and don’t have pity for me. Jaiden, thank you for being such a great inspiration and so calm and collected when it comes to these things, and you power through them. Thank you.
