Everyone is a prisoner of his own experiences. No one can eliminate prejudices - just recognize them. -Edward R. Murrow

Fat Boy
Music and Lyrics written by Jewel

Fat boy goes to the pool
See his reflection, doesn't know what to do
He feels little inside and filled with pride.

Oh, fragile flame
No one sees the same

Fat boy goes about his day
Trying to think of funny things to say
Like, "This is just a game I play"
And "I like me this way"

Oh, fragile flame
When no one feels the same

Hush, sleep, don't think, just eat
You daddy's little boy
You mama's pride and joy
You know they love ya
But not because they hold ya

Fat boy says "Wouldn't it be nice
If I could melt myself like ice
Or outrun my skin and just be pure wind"

Oh, fragile flame
Sometimes I feel the same
