It's lucky I've been in theater all my life
It makes me a good liar
If you tell the same story long enough
Hell-- you start to believe it
and it comes as a shock when you remember
that's it's all bullshit you created yourself
I guess I'm lucky...

I know what to say
I can satisfy all the questions
play the part of a textbook example
and make it easy for them to "diagnose" me
I can give all the answers
about my family and my childhood
throw in something about the media
and pretend I don't know what they mean when they talk about eating disorders

I laugh that I know more than them
and I can still run four miles
and skip lunch
I guess I'm lucky
