Growing Pains

Taking time for transformations
Baby fat and Carolina blue eyes
Swallow the shedding skin
I’ll eat up the metamorphosis
Internalize what I’ve been

She keeps applying make up in a paste
Pale face kohl eyes blood lips
She’s going out tonight
Turning into woman’s other purpose
Mother, lover, crone, whore

Patent leather shoes shine
Up her dress and she’s looking like innocence
She looks like a dime store child star
She won’t get far before they strap her down
Shoot her up with war and persecution

Prejudice ate the baby
Wolf stole the girl
Lady’s not a lady
Girls play double dutch
And they’ll all learn to fuck
