lyrics

"Bitch must be crazy"
They say when they think that they made you
And now get to break a piece off
Invite you to lunch at their salon
To try pastel child size dresses on

One laced like a straightjacket
Couldn't fit over my breasts
Wool skirt like an earthworm casing wouldn't zip up around my hips

I didn’t say a word
Swore not to complain
Held my arms Christlike
while they made the best 
of my silhouette

My complicated silhouette
My complicated silhouette
I got a complicated silhouette


CHORUS
My m-my my my my my
M-my my my my mind
don’t come in sample size

“Bitch must be crazy"
He said i was pretty and thought it was his turn to break a piece off
Gave him a kiss
Told him i felt nervous
When I said “no thank you” he refused to stop

Big nose, butterface
Pray for skin so thick nothing penetrates

I didn’t move an inch
Swore i’d never say a thing
Shut my eyes, imagining i was floating away
from my silhouette
I got a
Complicated silhouette
Complicated silhouette
I got a
complicated silhouette
do you want what’s left?

CHORUS
My m-my my my my my
M-my my my my mind
Don’t come in sample size
No it don’t come in sample size

My summer goal was to go
From a 6 to a 4 til 2 was too big
All i wanted was to be a 10
Diet-coke, gluten free 
Salad bar, skip the lunch
Calorie count, binge 
That’s when the shame hits me
 

“Bitch must be crazy"
I said to the mirror
I spent my last dollar defending myself
Ran myself ragged with something so jagged
The knife the world sharpened I turned on myself

Full cups, full hips
Where’d i leave my confidence?
Disregard my intention
Life’s a show without intermission

Too curt, too quick
Well shit,
Have at me
You want what’s left?
Better up and hurry for my

Complicated silhouette
complicated silhouette
I got a
complicated silhouette
I got a
complicated silhouette
Do you want what’s left?

My m-my my my my my
M-my my my my mind
Don’t come in sample size
No it don’t come in sample size
No it don’t!

My summer goal was to go
From a 6 to a 4 til 2 was too big
All I wanted was to be a 10
Diet-coke, gluten free 
Salad bar, skip the lunch
Calorie count, binge 
That’s when the shame hits me

Maybe then I’d love me
Maybe then I’d love me
Maybe then I would love me
