    Lyrics:
    V1:
    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Tunnel vision on the flaws
    In the scale of things it’s unimportant
    So no talking but it’s still an intrusive thought
    Tried hard to correct it
    But nothing was effective
    No-one else seemed so obsessed with it, things were desperate
    Until the voice crept in
    I can help you, trust me, you’re ready
    It seemed dangerous
    But it said to have faith in it
    The secret is to just be empty
    Didn’t know if it was wise to listen
    But what could it hurt to try?
    P1:
    And at first it was working
    But then things were emerging
    Cracked lips and Tired eyes
    I’m hungry with no appetite
    I’m shivering and shaking, and I tell myself it’s fine, but
    You can’t fool your body, you can only fool your mind, yuh
    Empty
    I just need to be empty
    Hide from anybody who’ll prevent me
    Just fill up on water and shame
    No, I’m not hungry, I just ate
    I’ve developed a taste for this
    Endure the neverending ache
    Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
    All that voice that makes me sick
    C:
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    V2:
    Been getting even worse
    All the days begin to merge
    Just a blurry haze and now it’s
    Almost second nature to ignore the urges
    Can’t trust my own nature
    Every calorie a failure
    Gotta push the intake down every day
    ‘Cause the voice comes back to say
    You want to eat? Bite your tongue
    Don’t want to stay an embarrassment
    just have to stomach it
    They don't know what you want
    A tug of war against common sense
    don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped
    P2:
    But it’s so overwhelming
    And I hope no-one can tell
    ‘Cause the numbers keep decreasing
    This ordeal is becoming routine, check
    Arms back neck thighs Suck it in and Pinch my sides
    The scales are betraying me, the mirror is a lie, yeah
    Numbers
    It all comes down to numbers
    I know it’s wrong but
    Just because you know you’re colorblind
    doesn’t mean you can see the colors
    Fine, I admit I’m addicted
    But the hunger feels good, how do I quit this
    I know I could die, I’ve seen the statistics
    But the voice is with me through thick and thin
    Bridge:
    I can reach out
    To someone not like me
    If you ask for help it doesn’t make you weak
    I can reach out
    ignore what the voice tells me
    I can help my mind learn to trust my body

    (dave is such a nice genuine guy i appreciate all he's done to help me. thank you dave!)

    Hey Jaiden! I stay up all night and so I fall asleep in the morning mostly after breakfast and so I’m not eating a lot so today something just was like this “This is good for you!” Then I said to myself “STOP THINKING THAT ITS NOT!” I’m not being me anymore just being someone else... I listen to this song everyday now, I try to stay awake for lunch and dinner but I just can’t... That’s all now bye...

    Edit: I have low self-esteem so I think that’s why it came to my mind.

    This song helped me.. It made me realize that I was starting to do this too. I told myself that it wasn't the same, because I never felt that I needed to change myself. But when you described how you felt I recognized every little thing.
    Because of this I was able to stop before I was completely stuck doing this, and now I'm getting much better.
    Thank you for sharing your story Jaiden, I'm sure that you have helped a lot of other people too ❤️

    I made a mix of both songs from animators (Jaiden Animation's "Empty") and (TheOdd1sOut's "Life is Fun") LYRICS ARE NOT OF MY OWN. NOT TAKING EITHER AS MY OWN!

    Ahhh! Such a beautiful day
    The sun’s shining in a beautiful way
    gonna take a shower, brush my teeth and say
    Mirror mirror on the wall
    Tunnel vision on the flaws
    In the scale of things it’s unimportant
    So no talking but it’s still an intrusive thought
    but I'll get out of the house
    Get on the road, top down, hands out
    Put on my favorite song and nod to the rhythm
    The planet’s being destroyed by your carbon emissions
    Tried hard to correct it
    But nothing was effective
    No-one else seemed so obsessed with it, things were desperate
    Until the voice crept in
    But I- I- , I’ll head to class
    try my best on every test til I pass
    and my grades are screaming in my face - Ayyyy
    98 percent of what you learn is a waste.
    I can help you, trust me, you’re ready
    I get to hang out with all my friends
    My friends are the friendliest friends
    Can't think of a better way to spend my time
    Your brain is flawed and all your friends will die
    Nevermind!
    It seemed dangerous
    But it said to have faith in it
    I’m alive in the greatest nation!
    So proud of- the exploitation of natives
    This graceful bird means freedom for all
    Tell that to the slaves and bald eagles aren't even bald
    The secret is to just be empty
    I can live in the moment, milk every second
    at any time you could get clinical depression
    But I'll just be happy, no matter what’s in store
    it’s quite genetic and we have no cure
    uhh- at least
    Didn’t know if it was wise to listen
    But what could it hurt to try?
    We are young
    not for long
    Life is fun
    It only goes downhill
    We gotta make the most of it, Make the most of it
    or you'll regret it
    We are young
    For now
    Life is fun
    for some people
    We gotta make the most of it, Make the most of it
    Good luck
    And at first it was working
    But then things were emerging
    Cracked lips and Tired eyes
    I’m hungry with no appetite
    I’m shivering and shaking, and I tell myself it’s fine, but
    You can’t fool your body, you can only fool your mind, yuh
    Empty
    I just need to be empty
    Hide from anybody who’ll prevent me
    Just fill up on water and youth
    No, I’m not hungry, I just ate
    I’ve developed a taste for this
    Endure the neverending ache
    Convince myself I’m in control and it’s not
    All that voice that makes me sick
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    Woo! I got a brand new job today!
    Doin stuff that'll help the economy
    I'll save money and buy things at the store
    Banks can crash and capitalism is flawed
    Been getting even worse
    All the days begin to merge
    Just a blurry haze and now it’s
    Almost second nature to ignore the urges
    And it’s all because of my hard work
    And the thousand advantages you lucked into at birth
    I put a lotta effort in my resume!
    Good thing you don't have a black person’s name
    Can’t trust my own nature
    Every calorie a failure
    Gotta push the intake down every day
    ‘Cause the voice comes back to say
    I'm proud to be a functioning member of society
    Finally, I can be the citizen I dream to be
    part of the community, contribute with my tax
    What could possibly stop me?
    The shrinking middle class
    You want to eat? Bite your tongue
    I’ve at least got a nice stable job
    Until it’s outsourced to china or replaced by a robot
    OH GOD- Well then I could relax a bit
    You'll be empty with nothing to distract from it
    Don’t want to stay an embarrassment
    just have to stomach it
    But man I'm a passionate graduate
    I can be different and I have a career paths to pick from
    I could be a rapper or an animator if I'm lucky
    Neither of those will make you happy, trust me
    They don't know what you want
    A tug of war against common sense
    don’t wanna believe that I’ve overstepped
    I'm able to choose what I pursue
    You're a slave to people born richer than you
    Then screw it, I'll keep going in
    then I'll party on the weekend and sing
    Thanks to autotune
    But it’s so overwhelming
    And I hope no-one can tell
    ‘Cause the numbers keep decreasing
    This ordeal is becoming routine, check
    Arms back neck thighs Suck it in and Pinch my sides
    The scales are betraying me, the mirror is a lie, yeah
    Numbers
    It all comes down to numbers
    I know it’s wrong but
    Just because you know you’re colorblind
    doesn’t mean you can see the colors
    Fine, I admit I’m addicted
    But the hunger feels good, how do I quit this
    I know I could die, I’ve seen the statistics
    But the voice is with me through thick and thin
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    I can reach out
    To someone not like me
    If you ask for help it doesn’t make you weak
    I can reach out
    ignore what the voice tells me
    I can help my mind learn to trust my body
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    I’m looking but I can’t see myself
    Inside it’s empty
    Ana- I know it’s wrong
    But it’s so hard to stop it alone
    We are young
    not for long
    Life is fun
    It only goes downhill
    We gotta make the most of it, Make the most of it
    or you'll regret it
    We are young
    For now
    Life is fun
    for some people
    We gotta make the most of it, Make the most of it
    Good luck
    Life is a wonder
    you’ll never know the answer
    Nature is a miracle
    natural disasters
    It’s good to be alive
    you could wake up with cancer
    But I'm healthy
    healthy people still get cancer
    I love this show
    it’s the last episode
    The sun is shining
    it’s going to explode
    Every species is beautiful and unique though
    Children have malaria thanks to mosquitoes
    I met a cute girl with a ponytail
    Statistically that relationship is going to fail
    I have a wonderful family, it’s like no other
    You're not special and one day you'll bury your mother
    No matter what happens I can find a home!
    We. Will. All. Die. Alone.
    There’s amazing potential in every human on earth
    There’s no escaping the heat death of the universe
    I don't have to live life based on negative parts
    No matter how bad they are, they're just thoughts
    Yeah that’s fair
    wait really?
    yeah that seems reasonable
    wait-wait-wait-wait but you were just telling me
    whatever man, I dunno, live your life how you want,
    I'm not forcing you to do anything, I'm just saying.
    Oh...Well in that case...
    We are young
    Life is fun
    We gotta make the most of it, Make the most of it
    We are young
    Life is fun
    We gotta make the most of it, make the most of it
    enjoy it while it lasts

      im saying the message, of speaking out about mental illness is good, but the song is very repetitive, it sounds exactly like everything else out there, and it has little to no replay value, a good example of this song done is Logics Suicide hot line song.

    It's so difficult to not eat... I've faced starvation before and I always give in to my urges but I managed to go this whole day without eating. I have a complex about my body and the most I can do is make everyone other than me happy. I know I'm not pretty so the least I can do is become a plastic.

    I think Im fat. I used to be way to skinny so I started to eat more to gain weight. But now Im overweight by a lot. I used to not care but then people at my school started calling me a fat hoe.
