born in the wrong body an noone knows

born in the wrong body he waits
born in the wrong body he ties his shoes before he goes to work
born in the wrong body he straightens his tie after his lunch break
born in the wrong body he's felt this way sense second grade
oh...

born in the wrong body he stalls
born in the wrong body he races to change before they open the door
born in the wrong body he screams out inside his own throat
born in the wrong body he's wearing women's underwear under that trench coat

it feels good
and that's alright
but things that i take for granted
he wish he's for in the middle deep, dark night
in the spring flowers turn their leaves

when we're born doctors seperate our tummies from our mothers,
and from that point on, it's not the same

born in the wrong body he swerves
born in the wrong body he bleeds the blood of the man he never was
born in the wrong body he seems exposed he never came to be
born in the wrong body he dies

wishing he were more like me
and in the fall
the kids come back to school
appropriatly dressed if it gets too cold
the girls are pretty in their pink, and the boys in blue

born in the wrong body and there's nothing left for him to do

the grocery list reads milk and eggs
paper towels and longer legs
broader hips and softer lips and
smooth, smooth, smooth, and smoother skin

the grocery list reads truth untold
high heels and hair of marigold
margerine and estrogen and
smooth, smooth, smooth, and smoother skin

one loaf of bread,
and don't forget the lightbulbs
these things i wish i was made of
milk and eggs and paper towels and pop-tarts

born in the wrong body he sighs
born in the wrong body he longs for slender shoulders and hairless thighs
born in the wrong body he settles as he hesitates for the life he chose
born in the wrong body and noone knows

Born in the wrong body,
I bleed the blood of the person I never was.
Born in the wrong body,
I’m trying to peel this false identity that represents me.
Born in the wrong body,
I scream from the inside.
Born in the wrong body,
I want to look in the mirror and find out it was just a bad dream.

Hates life, hates you, hates the way she looks naked.

She wasn't born anorexic, but nowadays she suffers,
Staring at these half-naked stars on magazine covers.
Feeling pressured by the public.
She only weighs 90 pounds but still sucks in her stomach.
On the inside she's dieing, lying to herself, thinking:
- 5 more pounds won't jeopardize my health.
One day she might just collapse, she can't avoid it.
Too many sleepless nights spent bent over a toilet.
Spewing vomit, like she was an alcoholic.
Praying to a God she never believed in to stop it.
Hasn't eaten in weeks, drinks water by the heaps.
Now she looks like the skeleton she sees in her closet.
So close to death she can taste it, body looks wasted.
Hates life, hates you, hates the way she looks naked.
Now she's feeling drowsy, lousy,
Thinking maybe this world's better off without me

I'm so sorry for all that I've done,
I'm so sorry for what I've become.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for wasting your time,
I can't hold you back 'cause I'm losing my mind.
I'm so sorry for all that I've done,
I'm so sorry for what I've become.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for wasting your time,
I can't hold you back 'cause I'm losing my mind.

She's staring at her belly, she's so scared to touch it,
Imagining the feeling when it kicks inside her stomach.
Too late for safe sex, should have used a latex.
She can't afford a baby on minimum wage paychecks.
Her waistline climbs by inches,
'Cause she traded in the morning workouts for morning sickness.
Feeling nauseous, sleeps on her back cause she's cautious.
Give life or take life, that's her only options.
Only if she had a magic wand, she'd go back to that night
And put her clothes back on.
But she can't change time, or what's growing inside.
How could she love something that's barely alive?
Her body's aching, shaking, from sweaty palms, and cold sweat.
Mentally exhausting like phone sex.
No regrets, life or death, it's high stakes.
'Cause right or wrong, it's only her choice to make.

I'm so sorry for all that I've done,
I'm so sorry for what I've become.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for wasting your time,
I can't hold you back 'cause I'm losing my mind.
I'm so sorry for all that I've done,
I'm so sorry for what I've become.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for wasting your time,
I can't hold you back 'cause I'm losing my mind.

[Side]
- Help!
[Girl:] You smell like perfume. That's NOT mine.
[Guy:] Your head's going fucking crazy, Your head is going crazy.
Gotta get outta here and look after myself.
[Girl:] What? What's so wrong with me that you can't love me?
[Guy:] Look-
[Girl:] What is wrong with me? I do everything for you.
I, I, I make myself look good, I go to the gym.
I, I eat like a fucking rabbit.
I don't, I don't know what else to do.
Tell me.
[Guy:] Baby, you don't understand because-
[Girl:] What it is I have to do to make you love me.

I'm so sorry for all that I've done,
I'm so sorry for what I've become.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for wasting your time,
I can't hold you back 'cause I'm losing my mind.
I'm so sorry for all that I've done,
I'm so sorry for what I've become.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for wasting your time,
I can't hold you back 'cause I'm losing my mind.
I'm so sorry for all that I've done,
I'm so sorry for what I've become.
I'm so sorry, so sorry for wasting your time,
I can't hold you back 'cause I'm losing my mind.
