    Lyrics:
    V1:
    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?
    P1:
    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
    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 neverending ache
    Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
    All that voice that makes me sick
    C:
    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
    V2:
    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
    P2:
    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
    Bridge:
    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!)

    So, awhile ago I found this game Gachaverce, and I subbed to this channel Caroline Hannah who also does Gachaverce videos.
    I was looking at my recommendations and I found this: Jaiden Animations empty gv (Gachaverce) mv. And it was from that channel Caroline Hannah.
    I just want to recommend it to you!

    She also is a fan of you Jaiden! Just gave her a shoutout for you! 🐦🐦🐦🐦🐦

    I'm torn on this. On one hand, I fully support the idea of making this. I think it's amazing that you turned such a dark period of your life into something productive, something that I feel might help people struggling with similar issues. Essentially, you've done something positive with something inherently negative.
    I do, however, just not like the song. I can't really fault the production too much, since it's well made, if a bit gimmicky at points. I just don't enjoy this type of electropop at all. Given the lyrical subject matter, it's miles ahead of much of the current music it emulates, and yet it still leaves me cold and unaffected musically.
    So, bottom line: very brave project, and ultimately a success for what it aims to be - just not my thing.

    This song is very emotional and I'm sure most people know that. Besides the 12,470 who disliked this song. Shame on them. But this song really hits me hard. My friend was going through the same thing and I didn't know for 3 months. He stopped after me and his other friends snapped him out of it. For anyone else out there that are dealing with the same thing, I beg you to tell someone close to you and talk to them about it. Not telling anyone won't get you anywhere. Just like Jaiden has said before, it only makes it worse and you need to stop before it gets serious. I hope everyone with the same problem will see that what their doing is making it worse and just beating themselves' up. Jaiden you've helped so many people and I want you to know that if you don't already. I hope you all are okay and make sure you help the people in need. Fantastic song you two.

    I know I'm late to this video ( sorry about that ) but I just recently got over my suicidal thoughts/actions and I have an eating disorder ( eating to little ) and I acted the same as you both. I cut myself away from the world and tried to hide it but everyone saw it except me. The main point of this comment is to say that we all have demons inside and they either consume is or we break free.
