(Music) (Dave) Mirror mirror on the wall Yeah, tunnel vision on the flaws In the scale of things it’s unimportant So no talking, but it’s still an intrusive thought Tried hard to correct it, yeah But nothing was effective No-one else seemed so obsessed with it Things were desperate, until the voice crept in I can help you Trust me You’re ready It seemed dangerous But it said to have faith in it The secret is to just be empty Didn’t know if it was wise to listen, but (Dave) What could it hurt to try
(Jaiden) And at first it was working But then things were emerging Cracked lips and tired eyes I’m hungry with no appetite And I’m shivering and shaking And I tell myself it’s fine, but You can’t fool your body You can only fool your mind, yeah Empty I just need to be empty Hide from anybody who’ll prevent me Just fill up on water and shame No I’m not hungry, I just ate I’ve developed a taste for this Endure the never ending ache Convinced myself I’m in control And it’s not all that voice that makes me sick (J+D) Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong I’m looking but I can’t see myself Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong But it’s so hard to stop it alone (Dave) Been getting even worse All the days begin to merge, yeah Just a blurry haze and now it’s almost second nature to ignore the urges Can’t trust my own nature Every calorie a failure Gotta push the intake down every day ‘Cause the voice comes back to say You want to eat? Bite your tongue Don’t want to stay an embarrassment Just have to stomach it They don’t know What you want A tug of war against common sense (Dave) Don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped
(Jaiden) But it’s so overwhelming and I hope no one can tell ‘Cause the numbers keep decreasing This ordeal is becoming routine, check Arms, back, neck, thighs. Suck it in and pinch my sides The scales are betraying me, the mirror is a lie, yeah Numbers It all comes down to numbers I know it’s wrong but Just because you know you’re colorblind doesn’t mean you can see the colors Fine, I admit I’m addicted But the hunger feels good, how do I quit this I know I could die, I’ve seen the statistics But the voice is with me through thick and thin (J+D) Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong I’m looking but I can’t see myself Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong But it’s so hard to stop it alone. Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong I’m looking but I can’t see myself.. Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong But it’s so hard to stop it alone (Jaiden) I can reach out To someone not like me If you ask for help it doesn’t make you weak I can reach out To someone not like me (Jaiden) I can help my mind to learn to trust my body
(J+D) I can reach out To someone not like me If you ask for help it doesn’t make you weak I can reach out Ignore what the voice tells me I can help my mind to learn to trust my body (J+D) Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong I’m looking but I can’t see myself Inside it’s em-em-em-empty Ana- I know it’s wrong But it’s so hard to stop it alone Inside it’s em-em-em-empty (Dave) I can reach out, I can reach out Inside it’s em-em-em-empty (Jaiden) I can reach out, I can reach out
