Verses
Days since I last pissed, cheeks sunken and despaired
So gorgeous, sunk to six stone, lose my only remaining home
See my third rib appear, a week later all my flesh disappear
Stretching taut cling film on bone, I'm getting better


Bridge
Am                                Dm
Karen says I've reached my target weight
                                    G
Kate and Emma and Kristen know it's fake
                                   C
Problem is diet's not a big enough word
              B                      Em
I wanna be so skinny that I rot from view

Chorus:
D#      D   Cm                D        D#          D        Cm  D
I-I, I, I-I wanna walk in the snow and not leave a footprint

I-I, I, I-I wanna walk in the snow and not soil its purity

Intro riff x3 with distorted licks in Gminor

Verses
Stomach collapsed at five, lift up my skirt, my sex is gone
Naked and lovely and five stone two, may I bud and never flower
My vision's getting blurred but I can see my ribs and I feel fine
My hands are trembling stalks and I can feel my breasts are sinking


Bridge:
Mother tries to choke me with roast beef
And sits savouring her sole ryvitta
'That's the way your built' my father said
But I can change, my cocoon shedding


Chorus:

Outro:
C#, Cmaj7, Cmaj7, Fmaj7, G (pick the chords, letting open B ring)

Cmaj7
Kate and Kristen and Kit-Kat,
Fmaj7             G
All things I like looking at
Cmaj
Too weak to fuss, too weak to die,
Fmaj7              G       Asus2 Am Asus2 Am
Choice is skeletal in everybody's life

       I choose my choice, I starve to frenzy,

E|-12b13r12~~~-|
B|-------------|
G|-------------|

Hunger soon passes and sickness soon tires
Legs bend, stockinged, I am Twiggy
And I don't mind the horror that surrounds me

                               E|-------------|
                               B|-12b13r12~~~-|
                               G|-------------|


Self-worth scatters, self-esteem's a bore,
I long since moved to a higher plateau
This discipline's so rare so please applaud
Just look at the fat scum who pamper me so

Yeh four stone seven, an epilogue of youth
            Such beautiful dignity in self-abuse

E|-15-13-12---------------------------|
B|----------13~~----------------------|
G|-------------------------12b14r12~--|

I've finally come to understand life

D|-------12(slowly bend)14---------|

Through staring blankly at my navel

D|-14---14--15--17--15--14-12-14b15r14b15r14~~--|

End on Am
