[D#]I-I, I, [D]I-I [Cm]wanna walk in the [D]snow and [D#]not soil its [D]purity[Cm]     [D]

Intro riff x3 with distorted licks in Gminor


Verses Three and Four:

Stomach collapsed at five, lift up my skirt, my sex is gone
Naked and lovely and five stone two, may I bud and never flower
My vision's getting blurred but I can see my ribs and I feel fine
My hands are trembling stalks and I can feel my breasts are sinking


Bridge:

Mother tries to choke me with roast beef
And sits savouring her sole ryvitta
'That's the way your built' my father said
But I can change, my cocoon shedding


Chorus:

I-I, I, I-I wanna walk in the snow and not leave a footprint
I-I, I, I-I wanna walk in the snow and not soil its purity


Outro:

C#, Cmaj7, Cmaj7, Fmaj7, G (pick the chords, letting open B ring)

[Cmaj7]Kate and Kristen and Kit-Kat,

[Fmaj7]All things I like [G]looking at
[Cmaj]Too weak to fuss, too weak to die,
[Fmaj7]Choice is skeletal [G]in every[Asus2]body's[Am] li[Asus2]fe    [Am]
I choose my choice, I starve to frenzy,

E|-12b13r12~~~-|
B|-------------|
G|-------------|


Hunger soon passes and sickness soon tires
Legs bend, stockinged, I am Twiggy
And I don't mind the horror that surrounds me

                               E|-------------|

B|-12b13r12~~~-|
                               G|-------------|



Self-worth scatters, self-esteem's a bore,
I long since moved to a higher plateau
This discipline's so rare so please applaud
Just look at the fat scum who pamper me so

Yeh four stone seven, an epilogue of youth
Such beautiful dignity in self-abuse

E|-15-13-12---------------------------|
B|----------13~~----------------------|
G|-------------------------12b14r12~--|


I've finally come to understand life

D|-------12(slowly bend)14---------|


Through staring blankly at my navel

End on Am
