    Mirror mirror on the wall
    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
    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 what could it hurt to try?
    And at first it was working
    But then things were emerging
    Cracked lips and Tired eyes
    I’m hungry with no appetite
    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, yuh
    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 neverending ache
    Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
    All that voice that makes me sick
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    Been getting even worse
    All the days begin to merge
    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
    don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped
    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
    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
    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 learn to trust my body

    (dave is such a nice genuine guy i appreciate all he's done to help me. thank you dave!)

    Listen. Their are two things you’ll be relying on. One your body. Two your disorder. Feed one and kill the other. Make a wise choice.

    Hey Jaiden! I wanted to let you know that I was close to becoming anorexic but I was able to find the warning signs and the only reason I was is from watching both this video and the original video where you explained your situation. So I really hope you see this because I really want to say thank you for helping me reach out to people who care and help me save myself. I'm still struggling with it of course but I'm at least able to force myself to eat even when I'm telling myself not to. So thank you

    I'm only 10 and I started my own disorder and well I only did for a week until my mom started asking me why i didn't eat but she started my disorder because she abuses me time to time and so does her mother. If people think aim lying I really don't mind because people don't believe me either.

  • It's Stella Mother Frickers

    I literally can't imagine you singing something sad. Your channel is so uplifting and fun. But this... This just really brought down the happy, uplifting vibe from your channel and makes me sad. You always were someone that made me happy and I loved your videos. I'm sorry if you're going through anything related to this song or if you just generally have anorexia. I just found this very... Different.

    Say we take what had been torn apart-
    Say we mend any patchwork discord-
    Turning eyes to the trypo-puppeteer
    *i can't exhale anymore.*

    So, one two three,
    and we'll tie the tourniquet-
    Pull my skin and swallow ichor.

    Fire burns-
    and the rags are torn apart-
    like if you heard that song \_( ' ~ ' )_/

    This actually helped me because the talk to someone not like me part I realized with my disorder, I can talk to someone because my disorder is that I’m scared to swallow because I feel like I’ll choke but other people don’t choke like that and there’s nothing wrong with my throat it’s just in my head and I can talk saying like how can I swallow without this feeling but also without pressure thank you Jaiden so much
