I stand near my own reflection
I look for any defection
I search for wrinkles beneath my eyes
I try to give myself some advice

I look at my own lips
And tie my hair with clips
I match my body's and face's skin tone
I search for the perfect colongue

But all these are basically just lies
I like to pretend and play tricks with my eyes
I wish I had all, nothing that i lack
Cause all I can see on my reflection is, black
