No magic mirror
Mirror, Mirror,
On the wall.
Hung here lonely in my hall.
Answer me truthful,
Answer me complete.
Tell me no lies,
Tell me of the things I pry.

How do you live when you don't want to breathe?
How do you die when you don't want to bleed?
How do you scream when you don't want to speak?
How do you love when you don't want to be?

What is your secret,
To living in this cliche driven world?
Why do you do it,
Rather than just fall in and burn?

I want to live,
But I'm occupied with life.
I want a life,
But I'm occupied with lies.

What do you do when the program crashes?
What do you do when it divides by zero?
What do you do when a virus takes over?
What do you do when life's in the computer?

Marylin said god was in the tv,
So we went and turned it off.
I say god is in your headache,
So go take yourself out.

You can't put band aids on the cuts,
When you're still holding the blades.
No one sees you, but you can't see the road,
When you paint your car windows black.

Why do you always think someone owes you something?
Why do you always think you're that martyr of the day?
Why do you always think you're better than me?
Why do you always think the world needs to catch up with you?

I don't care anymore.
I think i'll quit asking.
Besides,
The mirror never answers.

I have to many problems,
And too many faults.
Funny,
Seems being messed up is a bragging right.

How the hell did that happen?

No one can say,
"My life sucks,"
And mean it.
Because someone's,
Always got it worse.

Too many people gouging eyes for attention,
Casting aside those who really have demons.
You don't hear me complaining much,
My problems are my own.
Work out your own life,
I don't need you worrying for me.

......

I think it's time to take down the mirror.
