    dotsThe Mirror Mandots

    The other day when I looked in the mirror, I didnít recognize the face
    Iím not really sure who it was, but that man was lost in space
    He looked pretty rough, not as handsome as the man before it
    And no matter how hard I tried to, I just couldnít ignore it

    His manners and his actions, they were just like mine
    Whoever is playing this trick on me, has really crossed the line
    I look in the mirror to see my face, not one Iíve never seen
    The one thatís looking back at me, sure looks pretty mean

    So I try to let it go, and it stays in my mind to taunt me
    When I go to sleep at night, the vision of it haunts me
    Who is that man I need to know because he canít be me
    I donít even look like that; itís easy enough to see

    Oh I know Iíve lost some weight, and changed a few things to
    I know that I canít look like that, tell me it isnít true
    Now you say it must be you, who else could it be
    I have no idea who it is, it just canít be me

    But I must think logically, no one else was around
    The person in the mirror, never smiled he only frowned
    The weight isnít the only thing, which I've lately lost
    The other things in my life have an even heavier cost

    My self-esteem has taken a trip and I donít know where
    The worst thing about that is that I donít really care
    I used to be a proud man, stood up straight and tall
    Not so much anymore, I can hardly stand at all

    Thatís the way it happens when someone lies
    Especially when they sit and look you in the eyes
    The cheating takes your pride and slashes it apart
    Then you have no use for your loving heart

    The mirror just reveals the real you inside
    He is the one from which you can never hide
    He is your real self, no one else can see him
    If they ever did, theyíd say heís pretty grim

    I wish he would go away and bother me no more
    I donít like to think about the things he has in store
    He looks like the kind of man that could do anything
    From around a corner or out a doorway he could spring

    And do some things you and I could never comprehend
    Things against which no one could ever really defend
    The fact that he really is me that is what really scares me
    Am I capable of those things? That question it tears me

    If those are things that I could do, no one has a chance
    They hadnít better even, try to take a stance
    They better just run away, while they still can
    I need to get my pride back, to really be a man

    When I get it back, that man will go away
    If I get my self esteem too, away heíll have to stay
    I hate to have to do, what I know I must
    Take a certain person, and put them in the dust

    That is when Iíll get me back, forever and for good
    Someday soon itís gonna happen, Iíll be in the mood
    Until then weíll bide our time, the mirror man and me
    But itís going to happen soon, just you wait and see.
