Put my coat on
With a briefcase in my hand
Open up the door and step out into the world
A smile painted on my face
As I pass the man on the stairs
Hiding behind this sweater
He’ll never see what’s there
I control what you see
I control who you know
I can be most anything that I want to be
But never me
A little less than perfect and I’m not there yet
A little less than perfect and perfect’s a little less than me
Looking in my mirror where less is always more
Looking out through my eyes
It’s a beautiful world but I don’t fit
Get home late
Safe here alone at home
A bag of groceries under each arm
Heading for the kitchen
Cook myself dinner 
And it’s looking pretty good now
Don’t feel much like eating
So I throw it away
I do the dishes
Then I put them away
Going through the motions
Gotta keep a normal day
Naked in the bathroom
As I fill up the tub
Lower myself down
Swallowed by the water
The hands that are washing me
I connected by these thin arms
When I look down
I don’t recognize myself
It’s been so long since I’ve seen my skin
And I’ve lost what beauty was but I know
I’m starving for control
A little less than perfect and I’m not there yet
A little less than perfect and perfect’s a little less than me
Looking in my mirror were less is always more
Looking out through my eyes
It’s a beautiful world but I don’t fit
I don’t know how this happened
Don’t know, don’t know when or where
But this was sneaking up on me
I used to be someone
Now I just don’t know
I don’t know what to eat or went to sleep
I don’t understand
No, I don’t understand
I’m out of control
I’m out of control
A little less than perfect and I’m not there yet
A little less than perfect and perfect’s a little less than me
Looking in my mirror were less is always more
Looking out through my eyes
It’s a beautiful world but I don’t fit
