There was nowhere to go
So you tried to find your own way back
You heard her call you out
You might avert your eyes but you can't hide
From the sound, singing your name, in the crowd--and outside your door… every night

There was no light to guide you
That night she followed you back home
You fell in love with an image
But did you notice the scales under these clothes
Now every time you visit
Another part of you doesn’t want to float
‘Cause down there at the bottom
They don't worry about skin and bones

And that’s the lie we’re always told
Just take this down and let it go
You’re the only one that doesn't know
That’s the lie we’re always told

As pride dissolves, your mind recalls
A memory of a different life
This lie we’re fed is just a pill
That fills in the lines
Between yourself and how you want to feel
Closer to what you see on the surface, and what you need to carry you home
