Show & Tell Lyrics
Tell me you love me, but you treat me like I'm never there
You say the cruelest words, you used to break my heart
'Cause I'm over here working my ass off
Why is it so hard to see? (Why?)
If I cut...

Melanie is being brutally real in this song. She shows us how she feels like she’s constantly put on display. Many celebrities are constantly judged and this is her showing that she feels like she’s being constantly watched and she can’t display who she really is. This is especially showed at the end of the video where the puppet’s guts are showing and suddenly everyone is disgusted by it and leaves it. They are all disgusted by what’s inside. Her being a puppet controlled by a teacher represents how society controls her and expects her to be someone who won’t make any mistakes. That’s my theory, thanks for reading!
