Who's so phoney and always surrounded?
Stop you're screaming, no one can hear
All the scars on your skin, post no bills

Who you were
Was so beautiful
Remember who... who you where

Hide from the mirror, the cracks and the memories
Hide from your family, they won't know you now
For all the holes in our soul host no thrills

Who you were
Was so beautiful
Memories who... who you where

    Its about a child that was brought up by a screen, neglected by their family. This child has the pressure of looking good like the women you normally see on t.v henceforth the line 'all the scars on your skin post no bills' from where the child has cut themselves. This song is trying to say how you just need to be yourself, its beautiful.

    i think its about how a person can change from a nice thoughtful person, to a person who doesn't care. It shows how people have memories of the nicer version and that they used to really like them, but now they miss them. its a lovely song :)

    beautiful feeling about how the people is sad, and they don´t find a way.
    beautiful expression about the bad things in our growing minds, like Baudelaire´s "Fleurs du mal".
