Anorexia

Beauty is skin deep
(Exactly how much skin is left?)

To lose, to lose
(You have all but weight to gain)

Loss of food is loss of weight is gain of respect
(It's a matter of simple equations)

Bones reveal delicious crevices
(Body can now fit into crevices that size)

Curves gone; no dimensions
(Beauty is another dimension)

Will power is getting stronger
(When will you gain the power of satisfaction?)
