Broken Barbie Doll - Rialto

Back when she was a girl there was a plan to

see her through her life:

Get married' settled down'

and have some kids and be a good housewife

But she would go to bed at night with day-glo stars

and fairy lights stuck on the ceiling of her room

as she dreamt of another life.

Now it’s too late to go back home'

it’s saccharine and silicone

For a broken barbie doll

It’s sleeping pills and alcohol'

and nights she’d rather not recall

For a broken barbie doll.

And though the hands that played with her were cold

she let them drag her down

And as her cardboard world begins to

fall' she’s lying on the ground.

Now it’s too late to go back home'

it’s saccharine and silicone

For a broken barbie doll

It’s sleeping pills and alcohol'

and nights she’d rather not recall

For a broken barbie doll.

Her mother writes her every week'

she says she’s worried for her health

Her dad says she’s finding her feet'

but now she’s lying on the shelf.

like faulty goods that are returned'

her pretty fingers all burnt.

Now it’s too late to go back home'

it’s saccharine and silicone

For a broken barbie doll

It’s sleeping pills and alcohol'

and nights she’d rather not recall

For a broken barbie doll.

broken barbie doll

oh broken barbie doll

broken barbie doll

oh broken barbie doll

broken barbie doll
