how to: pretty

Listen to pretty music

And stay quiet all the same

Think all your pretty thoughts

Let them linger in the rain

Sitting on the bathroom floor

With your fingers on the lock

Let them ever slightly tremble

Till it clicks, all is forgot

Glance your over to the corner

Where you were the night before

Get up on your feet

Feel them scuffle on the floo

r You did this to yourself

Good going, it's punishment time

Being skinny is worth a million

Foods not even worth a dime

Now Put yourself into a mindset

Be absent of your pain

Sticking fingers down your throat

Watch failure swirl down the drain

You've done all you can do

Now you can only wait

Close your eyes, melt in the music

As your soul slips away with fate
