How To Fall Apart

Be the perfect student
The perfect employee
The perfect perfectionist

Everyone needs to like you
Everyone needs to know
You’re smart and kind
And organized and in control

Sacrifice joy to maintain
The illusion you’ve got
Everything under control

Happiness hurts
You need to feel safe
You know it’s impossible
To always feel safe
Yet all you want
Is to always feel safe

You have a body
Protect your body
Scan your body
Is your body safe?

Don’t let anyone
Hurt your body

Be a robot
The perfect robot
A robot has no body
A robot needs no body
