“Joe Cool”

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?
