I'm you. I'm your insecurities. All of your worst flaws. Your fears, worries and haunting
nightmares. I'm the light, I comfort you when your soul is down. I smile when you smile.
I convince you that this life we live is worth continuing. I'm the all-seeing eye; aware of
all you see and do, think and feel, hope and dream. I'm nothing but a fool, a trickster. All
that you live and breathe is a web of lies I've created. I'm the spider, you're the fly.
These are your wishes, I tell the lies. Mirror, mirror on the wall...
