We confess our darkest sins
to each other
Competing to see who wins
sisters from
another mother

Each silently envious
She sings Hallelujah in the chorus
Blind faith at its deadliest
The only prayer from her heart
is for us

She needs it too
We all do
As we paint pretty pictures through words false and true
No one ever sees the difference
But we do

Smile pretty, stand tall, stand short, talk nice
Use that sugar to hide the spice
But that's okay
because later in the day

We play cheap and dirty
Red smiles wink flirty
And confess our darkest sins
to the envious
prettier
sister
