    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Tunnel vision on the flaws
    In the scale of things it’s unimportant
    So no talking but it’s still an intrusive thought

    Tried hard to correct it
    But nothing was effective
    No-one else seemed so obsessed with it, things were desperate
    Until the voice crept in

    I can help you, trust me, you’re ready

    It seemed dangerous
    But it said to have faith in it

    The secret is to just be empty

    Didn’t know if it was wise to listen
    But what could it hurt to try?

    And at first it was working
    But then things were emerging
    Cracked lips and Tired eyes
    I’m hungry with no appetite

    I’m shivering and shaking, and I tell myself it’s fine, but
    You can’t fool your body, you can only fool your mind, yuh

    I just need to be empty
    Hide from anybody who’ll prevent me
    Just fill up on water and shame
    No, I’m not hungry, I just ate

    I’ve developed a taste for this
    Endure the neverending ache
    Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
    All that voice that makes me sick

    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself

    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone

    Been getting even worse
    All the days begin to merge
    Just a blurry haze and now it’s
    Almost second nature to ignore the urges

    Can’t trust my own nature
    Every calorie a failure
    Gotta push the intake down every day
    ‘Cause the voice comes back to say

    You want to eat? Bite your tongue

    Don’t want to stay an embarrassment
    just have to stomach it

    They don't know what you want
    A tug of war against common sense
    don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped

    But it’s so overwhelming
    And I hope no-one can tell
    ‘Cause the numbers keep decreasing
    This ordeal is becoming routine, check

    Arms back neck thighs Suck it in and Pinch my sides
    The scales are betraying me, the mirror is a lie, yeah

    It all comes down to numbers
    I know it’s wrong but
    Just because you know you’re colorblind
    doesn’t mean you can see the colors

    Fine, I admit I’m addicted
    But the hunger feels good, how do I quit this
    I know I could die, I’ve seen the statistics
    But the voice is with me through thick and thin

    I can reach out
    To someone not like me
    If you ask for help it doesn’t make you weak

    I can reach out
    ignore what the voice tells me
    I can help my mind learn to trust my body

    (dave is such a nice genuine guy i appreciate all he's done to help me. thank you dave!)

      I feel like I'm half anorexic. Sometimes I just don't eat. All day. Other times, I dive into junkfood and candy for comfort. I just feel awful all the time and I don't lose any weight. Idk if I can even call it anorexia if I'm over weight

                                                    When I was 9-14 I was fighting anorexia and it was so hard and I was also suffering from depression I turned to music for help as did Dave he said it in his video and this song really hit me I would not wish it on anyone else

                                                                                That was the reason she didn’t do a face reveal, she said.
                                                                                She ate as close to nothing for most of the day,
                                                                                Then got rid of the pain at the end, then washing it off, whatever that means.
                                                                                The cycle went on till she realized what she was doing
                                                                                It wasn’t just in he head anymore
                                                                                Another reason she was doing this was because everyone said she was doing good and stuff
                                                                                She was motivated as a kid when they said that
                                                                                Then she grew up and thought what they said wasn’t true
                                                                                So she ate ALOT less to look better
                                                                                It was working,
                                                                                She was getting skinnier
                                                                                Then she started the cycle I mentioned
