    • you can tell
      from the scars on my arms
      and cracks in my hips
      and the dents in my car
      and the blisters on my lips
      that i’m not the carefullest of girls

      you can tell
      from the glass on the floor
      and the strings that’re breaking
      and i keep on breaking more
      and it looks like i am shaking
      but it’s just the temperature
      and then again
      if it were any colder i could disengage
      if i were any older i could act my age
      but i dont think that youd believe me
      it’s
      not
      the
      way
      i’m
      meant
      to
      be
      it’s just the way the operation made me

      and you can tell
      from the state of my room
      that they let me out too soon
      and the pills that i ate
      came a couple years too late
      and ive got some issues to work through
      there i go again
      pretending to be you
      make-believing
      that i have a soul beneath the surface
      trying to convince you
      it was accidentally on purpose

      i am not so serious
      this passion is a plagiarism
      i might join your century
      but only on a rare occasion
      i was taken out
      before the labor pains set in and now
      behold the world’s worst accident
      i am the girl anachronism

      and you can tell
      by the red in my eyes
      and the bruises on my thighs
      and the knots in my hair
      and the bathtub full of flies
      that i’m not right now at all
      there i go again
      pretending that i’ll fall
      don’t call the doctors
      cause they’ve seen it all before
      they’ll say just
      let
      her
      crash
      and
      burn
      she’ll learn
      the attention just encourages her

      and you can tell
      from the full-body cast
      that i’m sorry that i asked
      though you did everything you could
      (like any decent person would)
      but i might be catching so don’t touch
      you’ll start believeing youre immune to gravity and stuff
      don’t get me wet
      because the bandages will all come off

      and you can tell
      from the smoke at the stake
      that the current state is critical
      well it is the little things, for instance:
      in the time it takes to break it she can make up ten excuses:
      please excuse her for the day, its just the way the medication makes her…

      i dont necessarily believe there is a cure for this
      so i might join your century but only as a doubtful guest
      i was too precarious removed as a caesarian
      behold the worlds worst accident
      I AM THE GIRL ANACHRONISM

      Thirty licks with a belt; same old tricks on myself.
      And I wonder: Does everyone else live this way?
      A succession of tests, a triumphant success,
      Each time I’m still in-tact, at the end of the day.
      Thirty drops in a glass, keep my temper and pass
      With my breath held. You bastards, you lucked out again! 
      It’s not really so bad. There’s still mom, there’s still
      Damage to do before they wrest the axe from my hands.
      It’s no mystery: you should obviously go,
      Before I break everything.
      You’re always telling me that you’re dying to know;
      But you’re not really listening.
      How do I manage to station myself in harms way,
      And only get hit with a ticket for loitering…
      That I have no way to pay? And no strength to argue.
      My personal demons can scheme with professional care…
      Oh, god, they’re after me!
      If I could shut them out just for a second,
      I swear:
      I could stop this catastrophe.
      Thirty day guarantee,
      But they can’t have meant me.
      After all, I was born to a child-proof world.
      No sharp corners, or glass,
      Small objects, or plastic bags.
      Please, these are death to a delicate girl.
      It’s no mystery - you should obviously know
      That I’ll destroy everything. 
      So don’t go telling me that you’re dying to know-
      ‘Cause you’ll get what you’re asking for.
      And I still manage to station myself in harm’s way,
      And only get hit with a ticket for loitering, 
      Stating I came the wrong day.
      Now all the demons are screaming, their wages aren’t fair.
      I’ve left a secret kept.
      If I could shut them up just for a second, I swear:
      It’ll look like an accident.
      I could be decent yet!
      The magnificent end:
      I could be president….

      biting keeps your words at bay
      tending to the sores that stay
      happiness is just a gash away
      when i open a familiar scar
      pain goes shooting like a star
      comfort hasn’t failed to follow so far…
      and you might say it’s self-indulgent
      you might say its self-destructive
      but, you see, it’s more productive
      than if i were to be healthy
      & pens and penknives take the blame
      crane my neck & scratch my name
      but the ugly marks
      are worth the momentary gain…
      when i jab a sharpened object in
      choirs of angels seem to sing
      hymns of hate in memorandum
      and you might say it’s self-indulgent
      and you might say it’s self-destructive
      but, you see, it’s more productive
      than if i were to be happy
      and sappy songs about sex and cheating
      bland accounts of two lovers meeting
      make me want to give mankind a beating
      and you might say it’s self-destructive
      but, you see, i’d kick the bucket
      sixty times before i’d kick the habit
      and as the skin rips off i cherish the revolting thought
      that even if i quit
      there’s not a chance in hell i’d stop
      and anyone can see the signs
      mittens in the summertime
      thank you for your pity, you are too kind
      and you might say its self-inflicted
      but you see that’s contradictive
      why on earth would anyone practice self destruction?
      and pain opinions are sitcom feeding
      they dont know that their minds are teething
      makes me want to give mankind a beating
      i’m tried bandages and sinking
      i’ve tried gloves and even thinking
      i’ve tried vaseline
      i’ve tried everything
      and no-one cares if your back is bleeding
      they’re concerned with their hair receding
      looking back it was all maltreating
      every thought that occurred misleading
      makes me want to give myself a beating….
