Mirror Mirror
by Home of the Lame

Mirror mirror on the wall
Why do we have to fall?
Standing in the bathroom light
With my headphones late at night.
The dull expression on my face
Is something I'd like to erase.

I'm listening, trying to get some signals
But the only ones I get are of the neighbours having sex.

This urge to keep my feelings safe.
This need to keep all pain away.
I understand that they can be rocks in the way to the real me.

But I've burned my hands before.
Turned hyper-realist to the core.
I've learned a lesson there and I don't plan on burning them again.
I hope you understand.

I thought today I'd not be waiting.
There'd be no doubts nor hesitation.
Because I know which way to go.
The one I've chosen years ago.

Sometimes it seems that all my plans are merely bullshit in the end.
An easy way to fool myself.
To stifle my own cry for help.
Now there's way to much at stake.
This body needs to stay awake.
Walled in and looked out, walked around.
Can't help but run about.
Someone help me map this out.

So today I'll not be waiting.
There'll be no doubts nor hesitation.
Because I know which way to go.
The one I've chosen years ago.

I'm thrilled by all the things you give,
Still I know that they will only live so long after today.

Keep this piece of me with you.
Promise to nurture it,
Take care that the cat won't drag it away.
If you ask me I would stay.

I'm thrilled by all the things you give,
Still I know that they will only live so long after today.

Keep this piece of me with you.
Promise to nurture it.
Take care that the cat won't drag it away.

The taste of all those sleepness nights that I keep somewhere deep inside
Helps me make it through the days.
Keep this piece of me with you,
Promise to feed it and take care that the cat won't drag it away.
If you ask me I would stay.
