Shattered Sanity

Reflections are frightening
You can’t always trust your eyes
When your ears are filled with lies
The pain becomes your sight
Images aren’t always clear to the broken

Words can drag people down with their heavy hands
The presence of love leaves and all that is left is an empty heart
Your reflection can shatter
The pain can subside
But you’re left with shattered sanity

Happiness, a misconception
You’re broken
And I can’t save you
Don’t let their words kill your light
Sadness isn’t the strongest presence left

Words can drag people down with their heavy hands
The presence of love leaves and all that is left is an empty heart
Your reflection can shatter
The pain can subside
But you’re left with shattered sanity

Depression is dangerous
And if you break that mirror
Only pieces rest in your skin
The rest is gone into the wind
But your sadness will always be there

Words can drag people down with their heavy hands
The presence of love leaves and all that is left is an empty heart
Your reflection can shatter
The pain can subside
But you’re left with shattered sanity

I can’t rescue you again
I can only reach through the frame of the mirror
You can grab my hand
But only if you repair the glass
Sadness can be only be cured by your hand

Words can drag people down with their heavy hands
The presence of love leaves and all that is left is an empty heart
Your reflection can shatter
The pain can subside
But you’re left with shattered sanity

The escape grabs at your leg
With its taunting tendrils
I don’t want you to escape
Stay with me on this world
Never let the glass shards be swept away

Words can drag people down with their heavy hands
The presence of love leaves and all that is left is an empty heart
Your reflection can shatter
The pain can subside
But you’re left with shattered sanity

Piece the puzzle together
With your fragile hands
Let the glass surface be whole again
You’re not alone
Don’t let misery cover your face with its mask

Words can drag people down with their heavy hands
The presence of love leaves and all that is left is an empty heart
Your reflection can shatter
The pain can subside
But you’re left with shattered sanity

The curtains must be torn away
The light must let itself bleed onto that mirror
The glare may hurt your eyes
Please, just open them
And see the beauty in yourself I’ve always seen
