lyrics

Were you the one calling my name?
Because I didn’t seem to hear you.
Are you now staking your claim?
Well I’m just a little bit busy
-Reflecting truths upon the water’s call
-Pretty face unrequited after all
Don’t test me!
I’ve transcended beyond the plane of the living
Respect me!
At least I have found a voice of my own. Ha!
Let’s evaluate the history
‘Cause I’m not the slightest bit inclined to speak to you

Narcissus I’m tired of calling right back to you
Done chasing a flower that never truly blooms
Narcissus I’m tired of looking right back at you
You’re wasting away for a love you never knew

But oh
Deep down it shows
Shows who you are; not who you boast
Deep down it shows how lonely you are

My poor confused darling
Let me put it in a way you can understand:
“I’d rather die than you should have me!”
You don’t seem to be blinking
I’m not sure you’re even thinking
Oh, how fitting indeed
That you should break your own heart

But what if we put our mirrors together?
We could do this forever
Turned our mirrors together
We could do this forever
In fractals I found you
I am you
Don’t stop the feedback loop
In it I found you

You have taken my soul!
-This vanity clings to me, taking its hold
Your visage echoes!
-This image, it sings to me, leading me home
You have taken control!
-The water, it calls to me, making me whole
You are not fit to love!
-No specter can conquer me but my own
