about

From the EP 'Hey! Murder', released November 2012

lyrics

Staring into
The vacuum of rejection
A starry eyed perfection
Glazes over you
A dead reflection
To animate, drag under
What gazes back at you
Will soon be torn asunder

What he wants you to be
It’s not what you think he sees
The plastic sheen of your shrink-wrapped dream
A self-fulfilling prophecy

Chorus:
Mona on the brink
Her frozen face of poison sinks
Breathlessly she counts the spoils
Of a life of fleeting fashionista
Butchered, sewn in
Dyed to please you

The latest phase
Her pupils dilate
Cross the page
Titillated by the promise made
It’s the final change
One last tailor to the frame
The operation guaranteed
To dot the ‘I’s and cross the ‘t’s

A living fantasy
What everyone wants her to be
A doe-eyed, wasp-waist blonde curled cupcake
Obediently perched on a well-dressed plate

Outro:
As she lies in tears
A stranger’s footsteps fill her ears
And all the beauty choices blur and fade
The magic lines dictate
An augmentation second rate
The instruments of torture greet the plate
Soft balls of silver tone
To swell and poison, leak and clone
The mouthpiece sliced, removed, neatly resewn

He sees what she’s become, the horror strikes his blood stone cold
He longs for who she was so long ago
He pines for her, her eyes, her mind, her imperfect life,
Her desire to be kind, her fragile humanity
For her, for Mona, for she
For Mona….
