about

We are living in a world obsessed with perfection, and I myself am a product of that environment. We are forever judgmental of others’ physical appearances, and overly critical of our own. Because of such pressure from the outside world, we take drastic measures to look “perfect,” one of many drastic measures being painful and invasive plastic surgery. These behaviors are dangerous, toxic, and addictive.

I hope that one day, self-esteem and body-image related anxieties will be a memory and not a lifestyle, and that images of cosmetic surgery will be in a history textbook instead of a magazine on my coffee table.

Until then, I will write creepy, theatrical, dark cabaret-themed songs about it.

lyrics

Are your teeth a little big, are they just too white?
Jump underneath the microscope
Are your legs a little wide, or are your jeans too tight?
Jump underneath the microscope

I’ll need paper, a pen, a ruler, a scale, a magnifying glass
Charts with decimals, percentiles to show it to the class
Let’s blow up the frame, let the blemishes escape
From underneath the microscope

And do you have wrinkles when you frown, lines that scream your age loud?
Jump underneath the microscope
Do your eyes droop down, are your feet as big as a clown’s?
Jump underneath the microscope

I’ll need paper, a pen, a ruler, a scale, a magnifying glass
Charts with decimals, percentiles to show it to the class
Let’s blow up the frame, watch perfection take shape
Underneath the microscope

No need to be ashamed, no need to have fright
Grab a needle, count to three, go under the knife

This will have to be ’til the next time we meet
Underneath the microscope

Let's blow up the frame, watch addiction take shape
Underneath the microscope.
