lyrics

Face in the Glass

Hi!
My name is Dave
and I'm an alcoholic
Dry for four months
Since July

And I've been to hell
and back
Had three heart attacks
Two kids
and one ex-wife

And I'm down on my luck
My credit fucking sucks
Yes I'm just an average schmuck

And I make minimum wage
Gamble it away
But I got something to say

I came here today
to tell you that I know
what you're going through

And I came here to say
that I know what I have to do

Shatter my face in the glass and erase it
It's not what I wanted to be

Pick up the pieces
there's blood on my fingers
the pain reminds me that I'm real

Hi!
My name is Betty
I was raped when I was 9
The same year my mother died

And I've got no one I can trust
Grew up with just me, my self hatred and I

And I'm cruising on the strip
Looking for a trick
To turn into my fix

And I'm so fucking stressed
Everything's a mess

Everything's a mess

But I came here today
to tell you that I know
what you're going through

And I came here to say
that I know what I have to do

Pick up this old photograph and I paint it
It's not what I wanted to be

Fix up the face
Paint it black
Because I hate this
This twisted reflection of me

Shatter my face in the glass and erase it
It's not what I wanted to be

Scattered
The shards on the floor staring back
are a twisted reflection of me

Pasting them back into place

Now the face in the mirror
Is someone who looks
just a little
like me

The pain reminds me
The pain reminds me that I'm real
