Perfect

Sometimes is never quite enough
If you're flawless, then you'll finally get love
Don't forget to stay in your place
Don't forget to keep that smile on your lying face

Be a good girl 
Try a little harder
You've got to measure up
And make them prouder

How long before I screw it up?
How many more nights will I stay up?
With everything skinny can do for you
The least you can do is keep quiet

Be a good girl
You've gotta try a little more
That simply wasn't good enough
Make them prouder

It will live through you, behind you
It will make you into something new
Maybe I'm the best, well that's a lie
Compared to him, compared to her

I'm doing this for my own good
I deserve it and I don't want to feel it
If you give up you'll blow everything
Don't show it, there's no point in crying

Be a good girl 
Push a little farther now
You're not pretty enough
To make them happy
They'll love me for who I am if I'm perfect
Then I'll go far

I keep good company 
But most days I'm still lonely 
I try to do my thing
I might go insane
With my mind unclear, without love here

Be a good damn girl
Go walk through fire
You know you can't erase your sin
I can't bare my own reflection
Mirrors crack and hearts collapse
I'm burning out but I keep moving on

I know something is bound to change
And guess who will be to blame
Why aren't you trying to hold me down?
I feel like I scream without a sound

Be a good girl
Everybody's got it together, why can't you?
Make me feel pretty
While the whole world screams "ugly" 

Stop bending me
I already feel like broken glass
No one else can see
The shattered fragments of me

Be a good girl
The pressure is on
It's inside of your head
You'll never win
Though the truth comes up again and again

Don't let them know who you really are
Am I me? Am I going to far?
They'll never know what's underneath until exposed
Shut your mouth and keep perfection close

Be a good fucking girl
Make grub an allergy
One calorie won't make you pretty
They need you to be perfect

I don't remember anymore
The happiness and love I seem to ignore
Everything inside my head won't leave me alone
And yet the fray can't ever be known

Be a good girl
Don't let them down
To be thin is to be loved
Be perfect, don't back down
