no reflection lyrics – darkheave

getting hard to compromise with nothing left to give
getting hard to rationalize all those things you did
how do you see yourself in your memories…
crowds of ugly faces, the thousands that you’ve been

there’s a you, and there’s a you that you want me to see
there’s a you, and there’s a you that you want to be
but deeper inside – what you’re trying to hide –
is the you most apparent to me
so fool the eyes, flaunt that f*cking disguise
if that’s what you take living to mean

empty… reflections all that i see

laugh with them, they laugh at you…
your acceptance is the joke
accept it when they reject you,
it’s funny you don’t know
change and re-arrange yourself,
kill what will not fit
blame yourself, estrange yourself…
you’re empty, full of sh*t

there’s a you, and there’s a you that you want me to see
there’s a you, and there’s a you that you keep trying to be

pretty fascinating, oscilating side-to-side
always entertaining, always changing… quite a life
reflected and refracted, you name it and you’ve been it
just smile hard, throw back your head
and show me that you mean it

there’s a you, and there’s a you that you want me to see
there’s a you, and sad but true, a you that you’ll never be
