Melanie Martinez - Dollhouse

Hey girl, open the walls, play with your dolls
We'll be a perfect family.
When you walk away, is when we really play

You don't hear me when I say,
"Mom, please wake up.
Dad's with a s***, and your son is smoking cannabis. "

No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens
Don't let them see what goes down in the kitchen
.

Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains
.

Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains.

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees.
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)


Hey girl, look at my mom, she's got it going on
Ha, you're blinded by her jewellery.
When you turn your back she pulls out a flask
And forgets his infidelity
.
Uh-oh, she's coming to the attic, plastic
Go back to being plastic
.

No one ever listens, this wallpaper glistens
One day they'll see what goes down in the kitchen.

Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains.

Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains.

D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees.
(D-O-L-L-H-O-U-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)

Hey girl (hey girl, hey girl, hey girl, hey girl)
Hey girl, open your walls, play with your dolls
We'll be a perfect family.

Places, places, get in your places
Throw on your dress and put on your doll faces.
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains.

Picture, picture, smile for the picture
Pose with your brother, won't you be a good sister?
Everyone thinks that we're perfect
Please don't let them look through the curtains.

D-O-L-L-H-O-you-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees.
(D-O-L-L-H-O-you-S-E
I see things that nobody else sees)

"Dollhouse" is Melanie Martinez's official debut single. The music video was released on February 9, 2014, and the song was made available for digital download the day after on February 10, 2014. It is the opening track of the 4 track EP Dollhouse, and is also featured as the second track on Melanie's debut album, Cry Baby (2015). Dollhouse is about a family that appears to be perfect on the outside looking in, yet it's far from it. A girl's family is visualized as the dolls living inside of a dollhouse that belongs to a little girl. This song has another meaning: how people view celebrities. In an interview, Melanie said, "People put them in glass boxes and think they are perfect and when something happens that shows when they are humans, people don't like that."
