An ode to the bathroom scales.
You tempt me, tease me, seduce me onto your cold hard surface
I stand naked, shivering with my hand clamped over my eyes
Not wanting to look but oh, so wanting to look
What does the number say today?
Has it gone up?
Has it gone down?
Please say it’s gone down, please say it’s gone down I whimper as I stand on one leg and blow all my breath out
For that is how I measure my self worth
By the number you show me.
Suddenly I remember, yes I remember
I am more than a number
So much more than a number
Wow I nearly fell for your seductive charms again
It is so easy to get sucked in but I am waking up
I want to live my life differently
And that aint gonna happen with you in my life
How dare I measure my self worth by the number you show me
It time for you to go
Fuck you scales, FUCK YOU
