Anorexic Beauty Lyrics

Artist: Pulp
Album: Freaks

Sitting alone on a cold bar stool,
your cold, hard eyes make me feel a fool.
Pastel-white features,
high cheek-bones,
scarlet-blooded lips and deathly tones.

The girl of my nightmares,
sultry and corpse-like.
The girl
of my
nightmares.

Brittle fingers,
and thin cigarettes,
so hard to tell apart,
she hasn't spoken yet.
You put your hand on mine,
death white on brown,
those whirlpool eyes;
well, I begin to drown.

The girl of my nightmares,
erotic and skull-faced.
The girl
of my
nightmares.

Anorexic beauty,
feather-weight perfection,
anorexic beauty,
underweight
goddess.

Sitting alone on
a cold bar stool, your
so hard to tell apart,
she hasn't spoken yet.
Pastel-white features,
high cheek-bones,
scarlet-blooded lips and deathly tones.

The girl of my nightmares,
sultry and corpse-like.
The girl
of my
nightmares.

Anorexic beauty,
feather-weight perfection,
anorexic beauty,
underweight
goddess.

after nearly dying from anorexia,
i can say that it isn't wonderful.

people that truly suffer from an eating disorder don't promote it,
they hide it.
like a shameful secret that eats away at their flesh.

it's an introverted illness.
the extroverts and promoters of anorexia are 'wanarexics'.

I thought he wrote to express sth that men think when they see a skinny girl...
by unkown on 1/3/2009 1:52am
i agree with meow.
anorexia should not be promoted
or celebrated.
it is a disease, and i've seen too many people suffer from it.

the song is very lovely.

My god it's lovely written... The good sides and bad are splitted... But i love this song, found it on alot of pro ana sites. It kinda describes me, especially the chorus :)

i think this song is amazing, not really because it's pretty ; but because it describes anorexia so perfectly. however, there is NO good side to this disorder. skinny does not equal beautiful. and why should anyone have to pay for 'beauty' with the price of his/her happiness? i've seen too many of my friends go through anorexia and for what? so you can fit in the tiniest size? why should you? i'm not thin. and i tried losing weight. went bulimic for a while. but i've learnt now. the important thing is that i enjoy life. give me a candy bar over a lettuce leaf any day :D

and in reply to ana, thin is SO not in. maybe on catwalks, but definitely not in real life. and i don't know about you, but i prefer reality .

people shouldnt argue over this...and i dont agree that if you share your disorder and try to help eachother reach what you want is being "wanarexic"..i mean, after i had been forced into recovery, i went through a time when i did that..because i wasnt over my obsession..still not completely over it now..but the point is, whether youre ana or "wanarexic", we all strive for perfection. so why put eachother down? seems silly to me..we all suffer from this stuff..why compete for who is the better sufferer??

i think the only reason anorexia is considered an illness is because it's harmful to your health. People will tell you you're nuts continuously until you believe it. But never give in to other people's scrutiny. A lot of times they're just jealous and insecure. Striving for anorexia should be regarded as an honourable pursuit because it means you don't just settle for mediocre and are willing to work hard for your own satisfaction and happiness.

i think this is beautiful.
by Helen on 8/11/2009 5:50pm
Being anorexic is something NOT to be proud of!!
by gegga on 12/28/2009 7:54pm
she was a beautiful boy
by rosie on 1/14/2010 3:38pm
I don't think Jarvis is saying any particular good sides about th woman he see's before him? I think he's describing a person that he thinks could be beautiful and amazing, but has pushed themself beyond that point, and it scares him slightly.
by Dee on 6/17/2011 7:07pm
Are you all stupid? This song IS NOT pro ana AT ALL. It actually mocks the idea of wanting to be overweight just to be "beautiful" - when there is actually nothing beautiful in anorexia. It takes the piss out of it. Anorexia is terrible, and it only causes people to suffer. I love Pulp, I love Russell, I love this song. It's very smart, and it gets to the point perfectly.
