When you look in the mirror, what do you see?
Lies in your eyes that carve wounds into my heart
Lips twisted by falsehoods you crudely impart
A callous soul that stays stone cold and empty
How many days can you pretend that you care?
As you manipulate my feelings for you
As you promote yourself, and snap me in two
Counting on your charms even when you’re unfair
What makes you so special that you flaunt all rules?
By hiding your deceits from my trusting soul
You promise faithfulness-a means to your goal
And demand devotion even when you’re cruel
When you look into the mirror, what do you see?
