Red lips, pink cheeks
Trying to be what you shouldn't be

Clothes too tight, shoes too tall
Wow, I don't understand this at all

Black surrounds those big brown eyes
Yes, the ones you've always despised

You try to cover up these features
Try to please these rotten creatures

They don't want you to be
The great you that you can be
Can't you see?

So let the true you shine through
That's all you've ever had to do
