    Can you see yourself not seeing yourself?
    That's the question

    If I paint the back of a sheet of glass black
    What I have is so complex
    You can never make your way back
    To vanity instilled in children
    Filling villains with the greatest weapon of all time
    A connection to your outer layers and mind, body and soul
    Could never conceive
    Or believe in a world without a mirror image
    It's a mere scrimmage when the mirror has two faces
    And you can't figure out which face is yours
    How would the world function
    If you didn't know which race was yours?
    You could take a face and, like, make it yours
    Make hate dissipate
    If the way to take notice to your physical
    Existed in a lake or a stream
    In a dream or a tear on a cheek (cheek, cheek)

    [Scarub]
    If there were no mirrors on the walls
    All along the halls
    And hallways and pathways and shortcuts and back ways
    And alleyways and corners or lobbies and concession stands
    And along the ceilings in grocery stores
    And at newsstands and restaurants and bathrooms
    And backrooms and living rooms and churches
    Where work is, where birth is
    In hospitals and hotels and banks
    A lot less would be seen
    You would have gotten away
    She would've been a victim
    I would have been charged
    And locked behind bars
    Wishing there were mirrors on walls
    All along the halls
    And hallways and pathways and shortcuts and back ways
    And alleyways and corners and lobbies and concession stands
    And along the ceilings in grocery stores

    [Sunspot Jonz] [CHORUS] X 2
    You can't stop it all
    Some things must fall
    You made it that way
    'Til it all blows away

    [Eligh]
    Can you see yourself not seeing yourself
    Unless you're looking into the sea
    Or you're seeing someone else
    Who talks in the same tone
    Or walks with a similar step
    When you're picking up the paper
    And the morning dew is wet
    Or playing in a game and some fool is dripping sweat
    Or you're bending over a glass table
    Putting down your bet
    On a world with an obsession over attributes so set
    On a physical vehicle decorated, displayed from the get-go
    Get low esteem, add it with DNA and traits
    Then you can say the hate for self exposes in reflections
    Get low esteem, add it with DNA and traits
    Then you can say the hate for self expresses in reflections

    [Scarub]
    No clear views or rear views
    Freeways would be overcrowded with fender-benders
    And middle fingers would be thrown up in faces
    As common as compact mirrors can be found in purses
    Life would be the worstest, or would it be a remedy?
    No more seven years bad luck for breaking the reflective glass
    More productivity
    Women wouldn't be running back and forth in bathrooms to refreshen that ass
    Less time and money would be wasted on
    Pathetic cosmetic merchandise made to entice
    And glamour girls would have ???
    And Michael Jackson would still be black, ya know?

    You made it that way
    'Til it all blows away

    I will not stare if you will not talk
    I will not stare if you will not talk
    I will not stare if you will not talk
    I will not stare if you will not talk

    [CHORUS] X 2

    I will not stare if you will not talk
    I will not stare if you will not talk
    I will not stare if you will not talk
    I will not stare if you will not talk

    "Let's take a drink
    Nobody's watching"
    "Yeah"
    "A small one won't hurt us
    Whoops!"
