Girl in the mirror

The figure in the mirror 
Isn't me 
It can't be 
The girl in the mirror 
She's young 
Happy 
And full of love 
The figure in the mirror 
Is a reflection 
Of what you see, not me 
The girl in the mirror 
Is a lie 
A mask 
A fake 
The figure in the mirror 
Is a masterpiece 
Of deciet 
And make up 
The girl in the mirror 
Isn't me 
If it was 
She would be cracking 

Ghost on the moon

A ghost on the moon 
Such a frightful sight 
To glimpse it's face 
At the dawn of night 
To hear it's wails 
In the October wind 
A gust so strong 
The oaks bend 
Don't go out 
When the moon is gone 
The ghost on the moon is free 
To do some wrong 

Shatter

This room 
Is bleak 
The only colors in this world 
Are shades of grey 

This room 
With only one ancient chair 
And the icy tile floor 
Cluttered 
With nothing but dust 
Suffocating me like 
Memories of the past 

This room 
With one locked 
Grey door 
That I test 
Everyday 
That rotting door 
Locked by somone 
I cannot remember 

This room
That I cannot escape 
With paint peeling 
And furniture creaking 
And a stale cold smell 

Has one window 
Grimy 
Filthy 
And spotted with dirt 
Dusty 
Cracked 
Nailed to the sill 

My only door 
To the outside 
Whose colors 
I can barely see 
Outside 
Where the air 
Could be sweet and warm 
And the world 
Is alive 

Shatter 
Beating the window 
With everything I have 
Hitting 
Kicking 
Shouting 
Screaming 
Until one of us gives 

I will not 
Be kept alone 
In this desperate room 
Waiting for someone 
To unlock 
That wretched door 

I will not 
Just sit in this chair 
And wait for a savior 
I will not be 
A princess 
Waiting for a prince 

Shatter 
I won't stop 

Shatter 
Beating my fists bloody 

Shatter 
Until I'm finally free

Changed

Things have changed 
I've made a decision 
Without realising I did 
I've changed everything 
Without a thought 
Everything I ever knew 
with one act I did 
I turned my world inside out 
With two words 
Against a woman 
Who loved 
And abused me 
"I'll testify"

I'm in that paticular mood

 I'm in that particular mood 

Where everything sucks 

I'm pissy, I'm bitchy 
And ready to rock 
I wanna knock down your perky cheer a peg 
Because it's annoyying as hell 
And I know what you did 

Leave me alone 
I'm too irritated with you 
I'm angry and tired 
And hurting too 

You want to know what's wrong 
Figure it out yourself 
Maybe with your flirty friend 
You lie about
