Barbie Dolls and Mannequins

You paint another smile
Fool the world again
"It'll be alright if I just pretend."
But you know that it's a lie
The scars write your name across their face
Haunting you

Your friends believe the lies you tell
The smiles you fake
You're praying you'll believe them, too

But plastic smiles and mechanical laughs
Can't save you from the truth
Don't face the world alone
(You don't have to)
Don't fight the demons alone
(You don't have to)

Why do you envy
The mannequins in the shop window?
Plastic breaks and paint, it fades
God made you beautiful
Beauty isn't Hollywood
Beauty isn't a Barbie Doll
God made you beautiful

But the scars still write your name across their face
Haunting you
Your friends still believe the lies you tell
The smiles you fake
You still pray that you'll believe them, too

But plastic smiles and mechanical laughs
Can't save you from the truth
Don't face the world alone
(You don't have to)
Don't fight the demons alone
(You don't have to)

The world is full of mannequins and Barbie dolls
With breaking plastic
And fading paint
And manufactured beauty

God made you beautiful
(Can't you see that?)
God made you beautiful
(Why don't you see that?)

Sell your Barbie dolls
Break your mannequins
And let your beauty shine!
