Obeying the Body's Want


The bones they scream in volumes that grow

I hear them begging to show

They want to press pass the barriers

They want me to learn “no”

It scares me as much as it thrills me

To take it all in and see

A better side of what I thought impossible

All I really had to do was believe

Now I feel it all slimming down

I can feel the emptiness in this gown

I’m falling deeper in the fabrics

I let myself fall, let myself drown

I learn to feed off the pain

No room for anything to gain

If I dance will you whisper you love me?

Is it all really so insane?
