lyrics

This is the story of a little girl who found an enemy in herself,
she wanted to become what media calls beautiful,
but some forms of beauty don't support health.

Trapped in a jumble of delusions,
trapped by reality without any guard,
trapped in a jumble of delusions,
but let us go right back to the start.

Everything began with self-observation at the age of thirteen.
And thereupon followed addiction when she started to turn lean.

I didn't notice anything at first, but then it got above obvious,
i tried to talk to her but she refused to listen to me,
I said: "Girl, you're about to destroy yourself
as some forms of beauty don't support health."

She turned away from me and cried
she said she knew what was going on,
i put my arms around her and whispered:
"You will get through this, you‘re strong!
I am here for you and i will stay here as your guard
and i will always protect what's close to my heart.
You‘re close to my heart."

Everything began with self-observation at the age of thirteen.
And thereupon followed addiction when she started to turn lean.
The less she ate the more she formed hate towards her actual beauty.
And eventually she cried decreasingly when she defeated her demons,
the demons inside her,
the demons haunting her,
she defeated the demons,
defeated them permanently.
