Pretty in Peroxide

pulling peroxide hair out in clumps
looking at you with my dye drop eyes
you asked me what i was like
before i added fake color to my life
i said i was bored
of getting blisters from wanting everything i touched
so i started taking the things i liked
they opened my purse and call me courtney love
the pill bottles speak for themselves
possession is 9/10ths of the law
so i guess i own you all
and having isnt knowing
jokes on me
thinking i was so much smarter
for cheating
the gamers system
im just a little girl in a strip club
talking the judges into giving her first prize
up against the big time
but i gave them all a run for their money
my mouth
isnt so funny when it tells you
what you always feared to be true
doesnt matter what kind of dress up im playing
words brutalize with bludgeoning batons
break break break
your stupid soul
