Are you satisfied?

I am settled now in another new house! I keep moving and it’s all very stressful but I am generally ok at the moment. I still pull out loads of hair and at the moment when the wind blows, I can feel it on my scalp. I am trying to pull less. When I find myself pulling, I tell myself to stop so that the times when I pull are shorter…

Anyway, has anyone bought ‘The Family Jewels’ by Marina and the Diamonds? The first lyric you hear of the first song is to do with pulling out hair!

Here are the lyrics:

I was pulling out my hair
The day I cut the deal
Chemically calm
Was I meant to feel happy?
But my life was just about to change

One life pretending to be
The cow that got the cream
Oh, everybody said
Marina is a dreamer
People like to tell you what you’re gonna be
It’s not my problem if you don’t see what I see
And I do not give a damn if you don’t believe
My problem is my problem
That I never am happy
Is my problem, is my problem
That I never will succeed

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to fly to make my way in life

High achiever don’t you see
Baby, nothing comes for free
They say I am a control freak
Driven a greed to succeed
Nobody can stop me

Cause it’s my problem
If I wanna pack up and run away
It’s my business if I feel the need to
Smoke and drink and swear
It’s my problem, it’s my problem
If I feel the need to hide
It’s my problem if I have no friends
And feel I want to die

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to fly to make my way in life

Are you satisfied with an easy ride
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?

Sad inside
In this life
I’m satisfied praying
Sad inside
In this life
I’m satisfied waiting

Are you satisfied with an average life
Do I need to fly to make my way in life

Are you satisfied with an easy ride
Once you cross the line
Will you be satisfied?

Are you satisfied? (x8)

And the song if anyone wants to listen:

So often I hear people say ‘I am so stressed I feel like pulling out my hair’. It’s a common thing to say yet when people find out you actually do this, compulsively and impulsively, they are shocked.

Strange.

  1. I love that song, have been a huge fan of Marina for well over a year now, but I have to say that I did not appreciate the first line of the song.

  2. I think people say they’re “pulling out their hair” as a phrase, like they’re grabbing a fistfuls of hair and yanking it out. Agree? They’re not “pulling” out hair.” Right? Most people don’t fess up to that.
