Lyrics

I search high and low but I can’t find you
still your vexing laugh entices me
close enough to touch but then you run away
I’m about to quit and then you say, “lose
yourself in the vanity faire!”

insanity is whispering to me, woah
what I believe is just not making sense
of what I see

show me your reflection, a sly disguise,
is it the girl you want to be?
a porcelain smile, you’re a knockout, baby!
drape yourself in fragile fantasy
I see your reflection, a sly disguise,
and it’s not the girl you want to be a fraudelent smile
what you see is what you’ve asked for but
it’s never what you are a cold-hearted tale

lost in a maze of beautiful deception
and just like before I’m at the mercy of a phantom
when will it end? how will it end and
will you be in arms?
I just can’t take anymore of this
pointless search for nothing

insanity is whispering to me
what I believe is just not making sense
of what I see

show me your reflection, a sly disguise,
is it the girl you want to be?
a porcelain smile, you’re a knockout, baby!
drape yourself in fragile fantasy
I see your reflection, a sly disguise,
and it’s not the girl you want to be
a fraudelent smile
what you see is what you’ve asked for but
it’s never what you are

hey hey hey!
silence, oh cruel harlot!
silence! your filthy tongue will be stilled
laughter echoing, I’m unraveling tonight
silence! I’ve had enough
silence! no longer will you stop me!

your vanity so patiently will steal your soul
you’re hideous
mirror, mirror on the wall, a liar to us
all, you’ll be the one to fall
the eye of the beholder knows the truth

show me your reflection, a sly disguise,
is it the girl you want to be?
a porcelain smile, you’re a knockout, baby!
drape yourself in fragile fantasy
I see your reflection, a sly disguise,
and it’s not the girl you want to be
a fraudelent smile
what you see is what you’ve asked for but
it’s never what you are
what you see is what you’ve asked for,
what you see is what you get
a cold-hearted tale

attack the mirrors, shatter the prison
one by one reflections fall, come on come
on come on come on!
until I destroy them all, come on come on
come on come on!
