I don't know what the answer is
But I know that I can't just sit and watch this
Beauty cannot be sold to you
The ideal they force on you doesn't exist
What they're trying to sell to you cannot be sold
You are beautiful but you're still flesh and bone
Are you too fat, too thin, too short, too tall?
Sad, unsatisfied, and always getting old?
It's everywhere and it's stealing your power
Getting into your head while you take another shower
