Tear Off Your Own Head (It's A Doll Revolution) - Live Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
Who dries your eyes when you cry real tears?
Who knows or cares what an imitation is?
Only you do
You can paint his nails
Make him wear high heels
Why waste time altering the hemline?
Or do you?
Verse 2
Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
It's a doll revolution
Verse 3
You can bat your lashes
You can cut your strings
You can pull his hair with your movable fingers
It looks so real
If one won't do it, so collect the set
Dress him in pink ribbons
Put him in a kitchenette
How does this feel?
Verse 4
Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
It's a doll revolution
Verse 5
What's that sound?
It will turn you around
It's a doll revolution
Verse 6
They're taking over
And they're tearing it down
It's a doll revolution
Verse 7
You can pull and pinch him
'Till he cries and squeals
You can twist his body 'til it faces backwards
Those plastic features
You could make somebody a pretty little wife
But don't let anybody tell you how to live your life
Broken pieces
Verse 8
Tear off your own head
Tear off your own head
It's a doll revolution
Tear off your own head
Revolution
