Paint The Mirror Black

March 11, 2019

“I look inside myself and
See my heart is black

I see my red door
I must have it painted black

No colors any more,
I want them to turn black

Maybe then I’ll fade away and not
Have to face the facts

It’s not easy facing up
When your whole world is black

No more will my green sea
Go turn a deeper blue

I could not foresee this thing
Happening to you”

“Paint It Black”

– Rolling Stones

Indicative of a projection

Not liking what I see
The ugly reflection of me

Cast on, an unsuspecting,
President, I am projecting

Knowing my true worth
Been that way since birth

A life in it’s simplest reduction
Parents 2nd tax deduction

Compassionate I am not
Ever since being a tot

Keep it to your self
Put feelings on a shelf

What do I have to burn
So that I may unlearn

It is quite the travesty
Stripped of humanity

An idea that I must smash
Perceived value is cash

When one sees the duality
Reduced to a singularity

Do not do as we do
Do as you are told to

That was the lesson
Session after session

Ask us no questions
The automated suggestions

We will tell you no lies
Though will give many tries

A past not easily forgot
Mechanical as a robot

Need to learn to care
Not just find what is “fair”

Must not make my karma
Play out as an angry drama

Even on a tiny stage
Need let go of the rage

“Pound the drums with martial beat
Pound the streets with marching feet
Wounded pride, distorted eyes
Paint the night with battle cries

All puffed up with vanity
We see what we want to see
To the powerful and the wise
The mirror always lies

Boys and girls together
Mistake conceit for pride
Ambition for illusion
Dreams for self-delusion

Girls and boys together
See what it is we lack
Boys and girls together
Let’s paint the mirror black

Paint it black”

“War Paint”

– Rush
