Nothing I do can stop it
I look in the mirror
I smile
I see what everyone else sees
But the mirror lies
Beneath it all
That's where the demons lurk
Because it's not the world
That is hurting me
It's my mind
My own mind has turned
It is against me
And when the world around me
Goes quiet and still
There is nothing to drown them out
Then, the mirror
Finally reflects me
