Fading Away

Throw it up, get it out
While inside you scream and shout
Take the weight off, see your ribs
When your parents ask, just tell them fibs
Look in the mirror, disgusted with yourself
Secretly in the store put food back on the shelf
They offer you chocolate, you politely decline
You cannot indulge, that's stepping out of line
The girls at school don't call you fat anymore
They look at you with remorse as you're collapsed on the floor
Maybe it wasn't worth it, all the pain you went through
Those girls didn't realise how much those words hurt you
