I won't see my dear friends as much
Male friends especially, I'll no longer be in touch
I'll change my hobbies to match yours

I'll stop reading my favorite books
I won't spend all this selfish time alone
I'll cater to you and hang on your every word

[Chorus]
I'll be subservient and spineless
I'll lick your boots as empty shells
I'll be opinionless and silent
I'll be the prettiest appendage to ever lose herself

I'll re-define self-sacrifice
Live my life as apologetic compromise
I'll know you need if I rock the boat

[Chorus]

I feel this, truly proclaimed will help the curbing of this tendency
I know this sharing of shame will ensure that I won't forget myself so easily

I'll be low-maintenance and agreeable
I will not talk about my dreams so much
I'll listen to you for hours, won't need anything

[Chorus: x2]

I feel this, truly proclaimed will help the curbing of this tendency
I know this sharing of shame will ensure that I won't forget myself so easily
