Body Broken
by: Casey

I sold my soul for this body broken
The weight of thinness will not let me breath

Confidence stemming from my body broken
I hold on to my friend who will not let me leave

Through a trial by fire I lead my body broken
Even though it's I who lit the match

To the limits I push this body broken
Never knowing who I'm trying to catch

And though I paid a price for this body broken
I'd trade it in a second for a smaller size

Numbers own the fate of my body broken
All I know of beauty is my body's lie

I know I'm trapped forever in this body broken
Death's my only escape from this disease

I've already destroyed my body broken
Desperation forces me to my knees

And no one knows the prayers that I have spoken
At this shrine of human waste

No one knows except my body broken
