ARTIST STATEMENT

when a girl feels so alone
what a tease to throw a bone
should've just stayed at home
when a girl feels so alone

why'd you think i'd put out your fire?
why'd you think i'd put out your fire?
don't you know i breathe in fire?
breathe out fire?

what if my own skin makes me crawl?
what if my own flesh is suburban sprawl?
what happened between us makes sense if i'm nothing
you're all if i am nothing at all

why'd you think i'd put out your fire?
why'd you think i'd put out your fire?
don't you know i breathe in fire?
breathe out fire?

you are always on my mind
you are always on my mind
you are always on my mind
you are always on my mind

they are dying outside
they are dying outside
and you lied

i am not beautiful
i am not beautiful
i am in bloom as the world goes underground
and i am not beautiful
and i am not magic yet
but i am in bloom at the end of the world
