Get my dress dirty; I’m not here to be clean.
I’m good to nobody if I’m kept all pristine.
Go ahead, break the eggs, get me out of this shell.
I don’t need protection as much as I need to stop avoiding myself.

There are messages I’m sending; half of them I don’t know.
Even when no one’s looking, I still put on a show.
My human nearsightedness can’t see what I say.
I don’t speak Trafalmadorian anyway.

No one’s here so nothing can happen.
No one’s here to be untouched and unmoved.
If I’m here, then I’m here; life’s not something I can refuse.
May as well use me to love you.
I’m here to be used.

Use me to say
money, position, health, handsomeness, and talent aren't everything.
Use me to say
you can be so concerned about being right that your whole life feels wrong.
Use me to say
I know how to get in my own way.
Use me to say
I don’t know what the hell I’m doing, and I probably never will.
Use me to say
replacement part is getting here soon.
