lyrics

Bottle blonde
One-time Miss Iowa
Aged out of Miss America

Spray-on skin
Paint-on face
You can count all my bones

You can paint me any color you want

Silicone and
Rhinestone soul
Blow-up lips and tits and ego

Hairs may sprout
And eyes may sag
But you can buy your body like a bag

You can paint me any color you want

My body
My temple
My Sistine Chapel Dome
My body
My investment
My forever home

Trophy wife
Shine from your pedestal
Cry tears of semi-precious metals

Prozac princess
Popping pills
And singing plastic songs

Where did your voice go?
Where did your face go?
Where did your voice go?
Where did your face go?
