The Eyes of Dissonance

Mirror mirror, in your eyes
Tell me what I despise
Let me see through the layers
Piercing through the veil of lies

Show me what I fail to see,
Show me all that I could have been,
Show me all that I lust for,
Show me all that I sowed but never reaped

Mirror mirror, in your eyes,
Tell me why I fear so,
To look into the shaft of light,
That cleanses me through my hollow

Show me what I fail to see
Show me all that I deny,
Show me all that I crave for,
Show me the animal that is “I”.

Mirror mirror, in your eyes,
Tell me why I repent,
When I have seen thy reflection,
Why do I run to shatter the glass

Show me what I fail to see,

Show me my own dissonance,
Show me my how I bleed you so,
In my own selfish ignorance.

Now the mirror lies shattered,
As I desperately pick up the shards,
They cut and pierce my hands,
As the blood flows black and dark.

You show me what I fail to see,
You show me the dark imbued truth
You show me the light bleeding through,
You show the me within you.
