You think you know her but you don't
She just wants to be alone
So she can paint a picture that screams
Who Mom and Dad want her to be
Forcing smiles masking misery

Violet Rose Belligerence was
Born to be the golden child
Glistening in fabricated pride
Her foundation is unstable
She subscribes to Scarlet's Label

Oh didn't you want to be
One with serenity?

What she reads in magazines
It's all so fucking obscene
She never wanted to live society's formulaic dream (jaded ecstasy)
Under pressure she will crash and burn
Manic Violet she will never learn

Oh didn't you want to be
The one to set you free?

Belligerent Mourning Star, you are
The one who knows me best
Belligerent Violet Rose, you chose
To run away and decay
Belligerent Sister Dear, you fear (that)
You'll slip away just like James.
