Pretty Thing

Tell me this,
pretty thing,
where does your beauty lie?
Because underneath that fine veneer
I think it may have died

Overdosed on stimulants
to give your eyes that shine
then washed away
when they wore off
to leave something false and dry

So tell me this,
pretty thing,
where does your beauty lie?
Or if you can’t
just rest at ease
it wasn’t you that died
