    Bulletproof Ballerina

    Black ribbon round my neck
    Your guns aimed me
    I bravely pirouette
    The show must go on.

    I will not be defeated
    By your words
    Or your weapons.
    I put my war paint on,
    Put my brave smile on,
    The show must go on.

    I'm scared, but let's pretend I'm not
    I will dance, I will fight, I will dodge
    I'm hurting but I will still smile
    Because the show must go on.

    I'm proud of the way I stand,
    Proud of the way I dance
    My feet bleed as you mock me
    But the show must go on.

    Every insult, every bruise,
    A defiant tattoo
    Which I'll confidently flaunt
    The show must go on.

    I am scared, I am hurt;
    But I know what I'm worth,
    I know I am strong enough
    To carry on;
    For the show must go on.
