Show me your mirror and I'll cast a shadow unforeseen
Keep me awake forever and I'll forecast an unholy dream
Push me under water and I'll always finda way to breathe
Hold me silent and I'll hear; Blind me and I'll find a way to see

That I'm the one who will not die
Not the one to slip under the tension
Growing younger as I age
A face in the crowd and still on center stage
It's not good-bye if you want to see them again
These memories will kill you every now and then

Give me a trick to perform one way 100 times
And I'll recreate your life 100 ways without a lie
Pen and paper as my sword and shield
Always want to fall away and always want to heal

That I'm the one who will not die
Not the one to slip under the tension
Growing younger as I age
A face in the crowd and still on center stage
It's not good-bye if you want to see them again
These memories will kill you every now and then

When I am born anew into a new life I breathe
Behind the curtains I am the magician with every trick up his sleeve
