Avoided Mirrors

from by Coffin On Tyres



There was a time when all seemed
So simple and logical
When the archetypes had no name
And were beyond disgrace
Used to be a shelter around here
A place where there was a way to go on,
Like Mars and Jupiter close to me
As life was supposed to be

There was a time when the days
Weren’t always the same
We used to make it almost real
For those who tried to see
A possibility to be the one,
The chosen one
So I disabled all my defences...

I caught a fever, suddenly
Passive infection
I caught a fever, passive infection
Suddenly, suddenly, passive aggression

Name the archetypes,
Avoid the mirrors,
God damn it

Then one day, not so long ago
It all became clear
Absorbing our normality
Made our sense of empathy so lean
One of us took a special way
Got so lost, just can’t tell
She made a choice we’ll never accept
Keeping balance, breaking hope
