Description
This song was inspired by the poem "Mirror" by Sylvia Plath.

I am silver and exact. I have no preconceptions.
What ever you see I swallow immediately
Just as it is, unmisted by love or dislike.
I am not cruel, only truthful---
The eye of a little god, four-cornered.
Most of the time I meditate on the opposite wall.
It is pink, with speckles. I have looked at it so long
I think it is a part of my heart. But it flickers.
Faces and darkness separate us over and over.
Now I am a lake. A woman bends over me,
Searching my reaches for what she really is.
Then she turns to those liars, the candles or the moon.
I see her back, and reflect it faithfully.
She rewards me with tears and an agitation of hands.
I am important to her. She comes and goes.
Each morning it is her face that replaces the darkness.
In me she has drowned a young girl, and in me an old woman
Rises toward her day after day, like a terrible fish.

Mirror
Swallowing everything
Silver, honest, and true

Why must I go
Look in your eyes
I'm hoping what I
See is a lie
Faces and darkness separate
I can't look myself in the face

Look in the lake, search for who you are
Reflect faithfully
Turn to the liars who tell you you're beautiful

Why must I go
Look in your eyes
I'm hoping what I
See is a lie
Faces and darkness separate
I can't look myself in the face
I.......

We get older
My hearts colder (x2)
In the lake has drowned a young girl (x4)
