lyrics

A face in the glass
Is all you see
It’s just a mask that you wear
It’s what’s underneath
That you can’t face
That’s where the cracks first appear

You’ve got to just look at yourself
From behind the glass
From the viewpoint of someone else
You’d see you’re perfect the way that you are
These cracks can’t be fixed
Cos the cracks here are scars

Look in the eyes for the person that you can not see
You’ll see that the person inside is who you want to be

So I hear you say

When I look in the mirror
The reflection judges me
I see a thousand people
Staring back

The monster looks out
And you can’t hide
It watches you where you go
Run if you like
You can’t escape
Because the monster
Because the monster is

You need to bury the demons that taunt you
There’s no use in hiding the ghosts will still haunt you

That’s why I hear you say

When I look in the mirror
The reflection judges me
I see a thousand people
Staring back at me
And I know all the faces
Cos every one of them is me
I live trapped inside
My own worst enemy

When I look in the mirror
I want to like the face I see
Look into those eyes
See past the misery
And ignore all the faces
The only one that counts is me
When did I become
My own worst enemy

Now I look in the mirror
I recognise the face I see
I finally found the person
That I used to be
And I smile at the faces
Cos every one smiles back at me
I’ve found a way to fight
My own worst enemy X2
