She sleeps with a knife in her bed To keep the monsters away
They scrape red lines on her skin That will fade some day
She knows she's the monstrous one And accepts their praise
They say "stay with us, Where you're unique and afraid."
I know duct tape can't fix me But I pretend that they can't see it
I once said I don't get angry I just turn it in on myself and bleed it
There's comfort in staying the same I want to know I can take the pain
I've felt like this for too long And I'm giving up dreams just to prove I'm strong
