Aching Ego

Her ego aches for unspent attention

hoard it up and then splash on out

for without that barrier of tension

she'll let the world know what she's all about

for little darling, bitch in angels clothing

reaps in the compliments and puts others down

just to forget her own self-loathing

and to change into a smile from her painted frown

so go, little girl, reel in the praise

make them feel bad for your history

for no matter your lies on each of these days

you'll never be any better than me.
