“And no message could have been any clearer”…

The man in the mirror…
Isn’t the best counsel for advice…
He may give it to you straight…
But also tell you evil lies…
Sitting in pure isolation…
His view distorted and perverse…
He sees all that you see…
But from an alternate universe…

He has such mischief in his soul…
And a twinkle in his eyes…
With no accountability…
He doesn’t live, but he survives…
Encourages you to do it…
And find your inner strength…
Points to which path to take…
And infects your mind’s wavelength…

Then he sits and he watches…
As you make a fool of yourself…
Awaits for the next opportunity…
For you to validate himself…
As you sit in his presence…
Asking for guidance and advice…
And he stares back at you…
In mild and mock surprise…

He’s the dirty to your clean…
He’s the bad versus your good…
He would commit so much sin…
If he was free and if he could…
Instead he’s locked within the glass…
Imprisoned in your reflection…
And damned for all eternity…
A mirror image of imperfection…

The wrong to all that’s right…
The demon hiding in your soul…
The one you can’t admit to…
And the one you fight to control…
Because he’s the man in the mirror…
And if you listen, you’ll pay the price…
He’ll never give it to you straight…
But he will tell you evil lies…
