Saves the Day Cars And Calories Lyrics

Her life was magazines
And faithful TV screens
Selling an empty dream
Of cars and calories
And everything in between
The sun and Saturn’s ring,
But the price tag can’t be seen
And it took bites out of her insides
Till she was just a hollow shell.

She grew up in east LA
Watching celebrities living
Out all of her dreams.
The plastic canopy
Of US royalty
Drew her gaze towards the sky
Away from her own mind.
And it took bites out of her insides
Till she was just a hollow shell.

And at home her mother cried cause daddy
Had something on the side and they didn’t look up when she sighed.
And when August came around,
The bathing suits were on the ground replaced by cotton cloaks
To see her own reflection was like squinting in the sun.
And when all tomorrow brings is a set
Of broken wings it takes bites out of your insides till you are just a hollow shell.
