Sonic Youth

I feel like I'm disappearing
Getting smaller every day
But I look in the mirror
I'm bigger in every way

(From the 1990 Sonic Youth song, "Tunic," which imagines the late Karen Carpenter speaking to her mother from heaven.  Karen Carpenter died on February 4, 1983 -- a month before her 33rd birthday -- of heart failure triggered by chemical imbalances associated with her chronic anorexia nervosa.)
