Girl before the mirror
Appraises her disguise
Child become a mother
Tries to fix her eyes.

No more of his excuses
It has to be today
She can keep her fantasy
If she can get away

Paint her name on a one-way street
Painted cheeks with angry heat
Wounded pride on painted eyes
Paint the night with battlecries.

All puffed up with vanity
We see what we want to see
To the beautiful and the wise
The mirror always lies.

Boy before the mirror
Checks his camouflage
Polishes his armor
And the charger in the garage.

No more lame excuses
It has to be tonight
He can take the princess
If he can take the fight.

Pound the drums with martial beat
Pound the streets with marching feet
Wounded pride, distorted eyes
Paint the night with battlecries.

All puffed up with vanity
We see what we want to see
To the powerful and the wise
The mirror always lies.

Boys and girls together
Mistake conceit for pride
Ambition for illusion
Dreams for self delusion.

Girls and boys together
See what it is we lack
Boys and girls together
Let's paint the mirror black
Paint it black.

All puffed up with vanity
We see what we want to see
To the beautiful and the wise
The mirror always lies.

Boy's and girls together
Paint the mirror black
The mirror always lies.

Girls and boy's together
Paint the mirror black
The mirror always lies.
